Tracing and telemetry are popular topics right now, but the development is so quick that it also confuses — traces can mean multiple things:
- Where do traces fit in with logs, metrics, and uptime?
- With OpenTracing, W3C Trace Context, and OpenTelemetry, there are plenty of standards, but what do or don’t they cover? And what role does CNCF’s Jaeger play?
- Where is OpenTelemetry headed, and how can projects tie into it today?
This talk gives an overview of standards, projects, and how they all tie together plus a demo with Elastic’s new OpenTelemetry integration.
