OpenTelemetry

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.
