    Specifications for OpenTelemetry

    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.

    CNCF Jaeger, a Distributed Tracing Platform

    Profiling ApostropheCMS with OpenTelemetry already provides instructions for using another tool, Jaeger. The reason we are using New Relic in this article is that it provides more features out-of-the-box besides distributed tracing or monitoring. This article will be a quick guide on configuring this tool, which will extract telemetry data and export them to New Relic for monitoring.

  • opentelemetry-go

    OpenTelemetry Go API and SDK

    OpenTelemetry, an open-source project, offers a set of vendor-neutral APIs that allow us to collect and transfer data to a location. This enables you to understand what your site is doing without having to worry about the tools or programming language being used. For more information, check out Open Telemetry’s website.

    Once our app is started, open http://localhost:3000 and head over to the New Relic UI to view your data. If you are logged into your account and navigate to the monitoring home page, you should be on the “Explorer” page. This page allows you to select any services that you have running. You site will be under “Services- OpenTelemetry”. Selecting it will bring up a dashboard showing various data about your site, like response time and error rate.
