Cloud Native Observability with OpenTelemetry

OpenTelemetry provides the tools necessary to gain visibility into the performance of services via an open standard. Its users can instrument their application code through vendor-neutral APIs, libraries, and tools.

With this book, readers will learn about the concepts and signals of OpenTelemetry - traces, metrics, and logs. They will use these signals by configuring telemetry pipelines and instrumenting a distributed cloud-native application. The book explains the details of the OpenTelemetry Collector and its deployment scenarios. Finally, using open-source telemetry open-source backends, readers will learn to analyze the data to identify application performance issues.

By the end of this book, the reader will be well-versed with the core concepts of OpenTelemetry and be ready to instrument their services using OpenTelemetry.
