    Grafana Tempo is a high volume, minimal dependency distributed tracing backend.

    Project mention: Waffles, Fries, Beer and Developers; Notes from FOSDEM 2023 | | 2023-02-08

    I started the day with some Rust and spent the rest of the day in the Monitoring and Observability DevRoom. Most of the talks I attended were about OpenTelemetry and were very Grafana Labs-heavy. I knew Grafana and, to a less extent, Loki, and I had never seen Tempo (distributed tracing) and Phlare (profiling), and Mimir (backend for metrics, more backend-y than Prometheus?).
