A new feature requestnew feature request looks for streamlining multi-tenancy support in the OpenTelemetry Collector, which could prove very interesting.
Buzz continues to build for OpenTelemetry in the cloud-native world. Elastic introduces its OpenTelemetry integrationElastic introduces its OpenTelemetry integration via the Elastic APM exporterElastic APM exporter, noting, “This integration continues our commitment to openness by embracing open standards support for the evolving OpenTelemetry standard for observability.” There is now an OpenTelemetry Meter Exporter for MackerelOpenTelemetry Meter Exporter for Mackerel, as well.
These OpenTelemetry SIGs are looking for extra support! Open source efforts rely on developers like you -- get involved with one of these implementations:
