Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Distributed Tracing with OpenTelemetry - Part I
2 projects | dev.to | 7 Feb 2023
OpenTelemetry is a standard for implementing telemetry in your applications. It provides a specification, containing the requirements that all implementations should follow as well as some implementations for major languages, including an API and a SDK to interact with it.
Observability - ApostropheCMS, OpenTelemetry, and New Relic
4 projects | dev.to | 16 Nov 2022
At this point, we are about to do the real work where we have to configure OpenTelemetry and export telemetry data to New Relic. Exporting this kind of data relies on a specific protocol; the OpenTelemetry Protocol or OTLP.
OpenTelemetry Logs - A Complete Introduction & Implementation
3 projects | dev.to | 20 Oct 2022
OpenTelemetry provides instrumentation libraries for your application. The development of these libraries is guided by the OpenTelemetry specification. The OpenTelemetry specification describes the cross-language requirements and design expectations for all OpenTelemetry implementations in various programming languages.
An Open Source Observability Platform | SigNoz
3 projects | dev.to | 13 Oct 2022
It follows a specification-driven development. The OpenTelemetry specification has design and implementation guidelines for how the instrumentation libraries should be implemented. In addition, it provides client libraries in all the major programming languages which follow the specification.
OpenTelemetry for Python: The Hard Way
6 projects | dev.to | 20 Sep 2022
Today we learned how to manually configure OpenTelemetry for Python to connect to Lightstep (this also works for any Observability back-end that ingests the OTLP format). We also learned how to link related services together through manual context propagation.
How to Instrument AWS Services with OpenTelemetry

According to the opentelemetry specification for messaging systems, When a process receives messages in a batch it is impossible for this process to determine the parent span for the span that it is currently creating.

OTLP protocol for shipping telemetry data
Observability Mythbusters: How hard is it to get started with OpenTelemetry?
4 projects | dev.to | 29 Aug 2022
Lightstep ingests data in native OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP) format, so we will use the OTLP Exporter. The exporter can be called either otlp or follow the naming format otlp/. We could call it otlp/bob if we wanted to. We're calling our exporter otlp/ls to signal to us that we are using the OTLP exporter to send the data to Lightstep.
Observability Mythbusters: OpenTelemetry to Lightstep 3 Ways in Go IS Possible!
6 projects | dev.to | 15 Aug 2022
Lightstep Observability supports the native OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP). It can receive data in the OTLP format either via HTTP or gRPC. You will need to specify which method you wish to use in your code, as we’ll see in the upcoming code snippets.

$65M for Obsevability

"Coinbase (?) had a $65M Datadog bill per its Q1 earnings call"
Folks on this thread might want to check out SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz). It's an open source alternative to Datadog.
I am one of the maintainers at SigNoz. We have come across many more horror stories around Datadog billing while interacting with our users.
We recently did a deep dive on pricing, and found some interesting insights on how it is priced compared to other products.
Datadog's billing has two key issues:
I am not sure when you tried OpenTelemetry, but it is decently mature now, esp. for tracing. I am a maintainer at SigNoz (https://github.com/signoz/signoz) and we have good support for tracing using Otel for most of the common frameworks.
I agree it was a bit rapidly evolving in early days, but now its much more mature.
You can check out our docs for distributed tracing here - https://signoz.io/docs/instrumentation/
We are building SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz) - an open source alternative to DataDog. We are natively based on opentelemetry and see lots of our users very interested in that.
As mentioned in some other places in the thread, DataDog pricing is very unpredictable and high - and I think more open standards based solutions are the way forward which provides users more predictability and flexibility
You should check out SigNoz (https://github.com/SigNoz/signoz) - It's an open source alternative to DataDog with metrics, traces and logs in a single application. You can just self host it yourself or try the hosted version.

I can't recommend serious use of an all-in-one local Grafana Loki setup

There's also Signoz (https://signoz.io) a YC-backed company but open source with (recently) paid hosted.
