  • Migrating to OpenTelemetry
    8 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 16 Nov 2023
    Have you checked out Jaeger [1]? It is lightweight enough for a personal project, but featureful enough to really help "turn on the lightbulb" with other engineers to show them the difference between logging/monitoring and tracing.

  • The Road to GraphQL At Enterprise Scale
    6 projects | dev.to | 8 Nov 2023
    From the perspective of the realization of GraphQL infrastructure, the interesting direction is "Finding". How to find the problem? How to find the bottleneck of the system? Distributed Tracing System (DTS) will help answer this question. Distributed tracing is a method of observing requests as they propagate through distributed environments. In our scenario, we have dozens of subgraphs, gateway, and transport layer through which the request goes. We have several tools that can be used to detect the whole lifecycle of the request through the system, e.g. Jaeger, Zipkin or solutions that provided DTS as a part of the solution NewRelic.
  • OpenTelemetry Exporters - Types and Configuration Steps
    5 projects | dev.to | 30 Oct 2023
    Jaeger is an open-source, distributed tracing system that monitors and troubleshoots the flow of requests through complex, microservices-based applications, providing a comprehensive view of system interactions.
  • Fault Tolerance in Distributed Systems: Strategies and Case Studies
    4 projects | dev.to | 18 Oct 2023
    However, ensuring fault tolerance in distributed systems is not at all easy. These systems are complex, with multiple nodes or components working together. A failure in one node can cascade across the system if not addressed timely. Moreover, the inherently distributed nature of these systems can make it challenging to pinpoint the exact location and cause of fault - that is why modern systems rely heavily on distributed tracing solutions pioneered by Google Dapper and widely available now in Jaeger and OpenTracing. But still, understanding and implementing fault tolerance becomes not just about addressing the failure but predicting and mitigating potential risks before they escalate.
  • Observability in Action Part 3: Enhancing Your Codebase with OpenTelemetry
    3 projects | dev.to | 17 Oct 2023
    In this article, we'll use HoneyComb.io as our tracing backend. While there are other tools in the market, some of which can be run on your local machine (e.g., Jaeger), I chose HoneyComb because of their complementary tools that offer improved monitoring of the service and insights into its behavior.
  • Distributed Tracing and OpenTelemetry Guide
    5 projects | dev.to | 28 Sep 2023
    In this example, I will create 3 Node.js services (shipping, notification, and courier) using Amplication, add traces to all services, and show how to analyze trace data using Jaeger.
  • Event-Driven Architecture 101
    3 projects | dev.to | 25 Sep 2023
    For example, without investment, visibility into system behavior as a whole can be much more difficult in an event-driven system. Investing in something like Open Telemetry and a service catalog is a good idea.  Getting started with these things are relatively simple, but if you want to store your traces somewhere that are searchable, you are going to have to either pay for a SaaS tool that ingests them or you are going to have to run and maintain an open source tool capable of this such as Jaeger. For service cataloging, Backstage is becoming a very popular option.   Depending on the capabilities and the capacity of your engineering team, this might be a good option and many companies do have platform teams that provide tooling such as this. With the average salary of a platform Engineer being ~$144k, companies should think carefully on whether the benefits of an EDA are going to outweigh the cost. We will dig deeper into this in part 2 and 3 of the series.
  • The Complete Microservices Guide
    17 projects | dev.to | 21 Sep 2023
    Distributed Tracing: Middleware for distributed tracing like Jaeger and Zipkin helps monitor and trace requests as they flow through multiple microservices, aiding in debugging, performance optimization, and understanding the system's behavior.
