  • How important is Observability for SRE?
    5 projects | | 3 Dec 2021
    A trace is a group of multiple spans that usually contain “References” to each other. They can be displayed using open source solutions like Jaeger or Zipkin as well as in SaaS offerings like Honeycomb or Datadog.
  • Cats and Clouds – There Are No Pillars in Observability with Yoshi Yamaguchi

    So I think that compared to new technologies such as Kubernetes or other CNCF projects, OpenTelemetry has a long history before its beginning. So now, OpenTelemetry is a joint project among the many SaaS vendors and also observability-related open-source projects such as Prometheus, Jaeger, Zipkin. And then, in terms of the APM vendors, including your company like New Relic, Google, AWS, Splunk, or Microsoft, Datadog, Dynatrace, and Lightstep, all of those companies are getting together to make the best solution to instrument the application. And each of those companies have their own struggles, and then they share those struggles and efforts with the community. So all the spec includes those histories and now get into one.
  • A practical tracing journey with OpenTelemetry on Node.js
    5 projects | | 8 Oct 2021
    Let's talk about the exporter. Because OTel is an open standard, you can theoretically export to any tool that supports the OTel API. For example, there's a ConsoleExporter included that prints traces to the console, but that's not very useful. There's an exporter to Elasticsearch, and you can write your own library to export to a file or database or whatever. However, two of the most popular options are Jaeger and Zipkin, and you can easily run them locally with Docker.

    Was the webhook received? As explained earlier, the first thing you want to be sure of is that the request reached your endpoint. You can take the simple approach of inspecting the request object on your controllers by printing it out, or use software like Zipkin for request tracing.
  • [c#] Using W3C Trace Context standard in distributed tracing
    9 projects | | 13 Jun 2021
    The main objective is to propagate a message with traceparent id throw two APIs and one worker using W3C trace context standard. The first-api calls the second-api by a http call while the second-api has an asynchronous communication with the worker by a message broker (rabbitmq was chosen for that). Furthermore, zipkin was the trace system chosen (or vendor as the standard call it), being responsible for getting the application traces and building the distributed tracing diagram:
  • Introducing Hypertrace
    3 projects | | 17 May 2021
    Distributed Tracing tells a story of what's already happened in your system so you can quickly identify your problem and find a solution. Zipkin and Jaeger are currently the two most popular distributed tracing systems.
  • Using Distributed Tracing in Microservices Architecture
    9 projects | | 14 May 2021
    Code Tracing Tools: Performs tracing during the execution of a computer program (Code). These tools help in tracing every line of code, the variables declared, the conditional statements used, the iterative functions, and finally deliver the expected output of the code. These are of great help in code analysis and diagnosing purposes. Some examples of Code Tracing tools are, OpenTracing, OpenZipkin, and Appdash.

    But what about tracing your request spanning across multiple microservices and tools? This is where distributed tracing also becomes very important especially considering the complexity that microservices comes with. And this is an area where tools like Zipkin and Jaeger have been pioneers with the recent entrant to this space being Tempo
