OpenTelemetry is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation(CNCF) 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. For OpenTelemetry visualization, you need to use a backend that can ingest the collected data and provide a web UI to visualize it.
OpenTelemetry Collector is a stand-alone service provided by OpenTelemetry. It can be used as a telemetry-processing system with a lot of flexible configurations to collect and manage telemetry data. Let's do a deep dive on OpenTelemetry Collectors to understand how it works.
Monitoring PostgreSQL for performance issues is critical. PostgreSQL is a powerful open-source relational database system that stands out for its robustness, scalability, and strong emphasis on extensibility and standards compliance. In this guide on PostgreSQL monitoring, we will cover key PostgreSQL metrics that should be monitored, best practices for monitoring PostgreSQL and some tools with which you can set up PostgreSQL monitoring.
PostgreSQL metrics monitoring is important to ensure that PostgreSQL is performing as expected and to identify and resolve problems quickly. In this tutorial, you will install OpenTelemetry Collector to collect PostgreSQL metrics and then send the collected data to SigNoz for monitoring and visualization.
CloudWatch metrics play a critical role in monitoring AWS resources and facilitating effective troubleshooting during system failures. It allows for continuous monitoring of AWS resources like EC2 instances, Lambda functions, and RDS databases. Using Cloudwatch metrics, DevOps teams can monitor and manage their AWS infrastructure easily.
Are you looking for MongoDB monitoring tools? Then you’re at the right place. MongoDB is one of the most popular and powerful NoSQL databases out there. The fact that it’s a document-based database makes it blazing fast.
OpenTelemetry can help you monitor CouchDB performance metrics with the help of OpenTelemetry Collector. In this tutorial, you will install OpenTelemetry Collector to collect CouchDB metrics and then send the collected data to SigNoz for monitoring and visualization.
Monitoring Docker container metrics is essential for understanding the performance and health of your containers. OpenTelemetry collector can collect Docker container metrics and send it to a backend of your choice. In this tutorial, you will install an OpenTelemetry Collector to collect Docker container metrics and send it to SigNoz, an OpenTelemetry-native APM for monitoring and visualization.
Are you looking for a New Relic alternative? Then you have come to the right place. New Relic is a comprehensive observability tool. But it might be too complex for your use case, or you might have been bugged by its complex pricing policies like user seats-based pricing. We have made a list of top 11 New Relic alternatives that you might want to consider.
OpenTelemetry has brought a sea change in the world of observability. The idea of the project was to standardize the instrumentation needed for generating telemetry. Teams shouldn’t need to change how they collect data if they want to try a new visualization/backend for the telemetry data. That was the vision.
