OpenTelemetry for Go

The Honeycomb OpenTelemetry Distro for Go wraps the official OpenTelemetry Go SDK. OpenTelemetry distributions (or “distros”) are customized versions of OpenTelemetry components. Honeycomb’s distro provides the same functionality as the upstream OpenTelemetry SDK plus more.

How it works

Honeycomb’s OpenTelemetry Distro for Go simplifies the setup process and lets you add automatic and manual instrumentation to your Go applications so they can send telemetry data to Honeycomb.

Optionally, you may also use the official OpenTelemetry Go SDK instead of the Honeycomb distro. The upstream version of OpenTelemetry may require additional configuration, compared to the distro.
