Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

OpenTelemetry is an open source observability project that merges OpenTracing and OpenCensus. The OpenTelemetry project includes specification, libraries, agents, and other components needed to capture telemetry from services to better observe, manage and debug them. It covers the three pillars of observability — distributed tracing, metrics and logging (currently in beta) — and its specification connects these three pieces through correlations; thus you can use metrics to pinpoint a problem, locate the corresponding traces to discover where the problem occured, and ultimately study the corresponding logs to find the exact root cause. OpenTelemetry components can be connected to back-end observability systems such as Prometheus and Jaeger among others. Formation of OpenTracing is a positive step toward the convergence of standardization and the simplification of tooling.

As monolithic applications are being replaced with more complex (micro)service ecosystems, tracing requests across multiple services is becoming the norm. With majority contribution from LightStep and Uber OpenTracing is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for distributed tracing. There is a growing number of tracers supporting OpenTracing standard, including Zipkin, Instana, and Jaeger. OpenTracing currently provides vendor-neutral implementation in multiple languages including: Go, JavaScript, Java, Python, Objective-C, C#, C++, Ruby and PHP.
