OpenTelemetry can be used to instrument your Elixir applications to generate telemetry data. The telemetry data can then be visualized using an observability tool to monitor your Elixir application performance. In this tutorial, we will use OpenTelemetry Elixir libraries to instrument an Elixir application and then visualize it using SigNoz.
Setting up observability and robust monitoring for distributed systems is a challenging task. Engineering teams need access to different pieces of information to understand what's happening with their application. Is OpenTelemetry a step in the right direction for distributed tracing? Let's find out.
Are you looking for a DataDog alternative? Then you have come to the right place. In this article, we will go through top 5 DataDog alternatives. One of the biggest challenge users face with DataDog is its pricing policies.
OpenTelemetry is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation(CNCF) incubating project aimed at standardizing the way we instrument applications for generating telemetry data(logs, metrics, and traces). However, OpenTelemetry does not provide storage and visualization for the collected telemetry data. And that’s where an OpenTelemetry backend is needed.

Welcome back to our monthly product updates - SigNal! Last month, the SigNoz team shipped many advanced features that will help our users take observability to the next level.
When we have large-scale, distributed systems, Logging becomes essential for observability, monitoring, and security. No matter what architecture (Monolith/Microservices) our systems have, they are complex due to the number of moving parts they have and the challenges they face around management, deployment, and scaling.
Information about the containers and pods on your cluster may be obtained using the
kubectl logs command. These logs allow you to know the performance of your applications, whether they are failing or healthy, and are particularly useful for debugging and troubleshooting purposes.
Developing software is an art in itself. From building to shipping, developers have to keep iterating the process to make improvements to the existing ones. Developers around the world spend hours on building quality logging into their applications. But this logging is only efficient when we have one-page or two-page applications where debugging through logs is relatively easy.
Winston Logger is one of the most popular logging libraries for Node.js. It is designed to be a simple and universal logging library supporting multiple modes of transport. A transport is essentially a storage device for the logs.
Kubectl Top command can be used to retrieve snapshots of resource utilization of pods or nodes in your Kubernetes cluster. Resource utilization is an important thing to monitor for Kubernetes cluster owners. In order to monitor resource utilization, you can keep track of things like CPU, memory, and storage.
