OpenTelemetry Support

OpenTelemetry is an open-source project designed to provide a set of APIs, libraries, agents, and instrumentation to facilitate the collection of telemetry data (metrics, traces, and logs) from various applications and services.

Atatus' OpenTelemetry support refers to its integration with the OpenTelemetry project, allowing users to collect telemetry data from their applications and send it to Atatus' platform for analysis and visualization.

OpenTelemetry Traces

Before the introduction of OpenTelemetry support, monitoring and collecting telemetry data from applications typically involved a combination of different tools, libraries, and custom integrations.

OpenTelemetry support in Atatus offers several advantages for monitoring and observability:

  1. Standardized Instrumentation: OpenTelemetry provides a standardized way to instrument applications for collecting telemetry data, including metrics, traces, and logs.

  2. Vendor-Neutral Integration: OpenTelemetry is an open-source project supported by a broad community of contributors and vendors.

  3. Multi-Language Support: OpenTelemetry supports multiple programming languages, including Java, Python, Go, and others.

  4. End-to-end Observability: OpenTelemetry facilitates end-to-end observability by capturing telemetry data from various components of distributed systems, including microservices, cloud-native applications, and infrastructure.

  5. Rich Visualization and Analysis: Telemetry data collected via OpenTelemetry can be visualized and analyzed using Atatus's platform.
