Deep Dive into Observability with OpenTelemetry

What’s observability? Observability is the power to grasp the inner state of a system by inspecting its outputs. Within the context of software program, this implies having the ability to perceive the inner state of a system by inspecting its telemetry information, which incorporates traces, metrics, and logs. To make a system observable, it have […]

OpenTelemetry Collector Anti-Patterns – DEV Community

The OpenTelemetry Collector is considered one of my favourite OpenTelemetry (OTel) elements. It’s a versatile and highly effective information pipeline which lets you ingest OTel information from a number of sources, rework it (together with batching, filtering, and masking), and export it to a number of observability backends for evaluation. It’s vendor-neutral. It’s extensible, which […]
