Take Control of Your Observability Data: An Engineering Roundtable on Lessons Learned with OpenTelemetry
Ep. #45, Choosing OpenTelemetry with Chris Holmes of Simply Business
In episode 45 of o11ycast, Charity and Liz are joined by Chris Holmes of Simply Business. Together they unpack OpenTelemetry, the importance of tracing, and the observability adoption process at Simply Business.
The OpenTelemetry Collector can be used to consolidate and process data from multiple different services. This video explains the OpenTelemetry Collector and how you can use it with Honeycomb to observe existing and new applications.
Building Observability Metrics With OpenTelemetry
OpenTelemetry provided trace data stability earlier this year. Now, project contributors are enhancing metrics support in OpenTelemetry. This means the OpenTelemetry data model and components, including the Collector and language libraries (APIs and SDKs), are being extended. Full interoperability with Prometheus, a core pillar of metrics support with OpenTelemetry, is also in development. Join in for this session to learn about what we’re building to provide full metrics support and ensure interoperability with Prometheus metrics.
