OpenTelemetry Project News

It has been exciting to see the growth of awareness and engagement with the project since the first wave of beta releases back in March. This progress comes alongside good news from Gartner about the future of open source instrumentation:

“By 2025, Gartner predicts, “50% of new cloud-native application monitoring systems will use open-source instrumentation, rather than vendor-specific agents for improved interoperability, which is a major increase from 5% in 2019.” Agents will shift to open source to “simplify the process of monitoring, enable interoperability among monitoring solutions, and disrupt the pricing model to be more about customer value.”

Jaeger has announced that they intend to base future iterations of the Jaeger collector, agent and ingester components on the OpenTelemetry collector.

The Lightstep OpenTelemetry Python exporter has been updated.

The HoneyComb OpenTelemetry Go exporter has been updated.

These OpenTelemetry SIGs are looking for extra support! Open source efforts rely on developers like you -- get involved with one of these implementations:

  • OTel-Rust is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-PHP is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-C++ is looking for contributors and maintainers
  • OTel-Ruby has seen a lot of contributions, but would benefit from having more dedicated maintainers
