Jaeger: The Future with OpenTelemetry and Metrics - Pavol Loffay, Red Hat & Jonah Kowall, Aiven

In this session, we will start with an introduction to the Jaeger distributed tracing project and the basics of distributed tracing. Jaeger recently deprecated its native clients in favor of the OpenTelemetry SDKs. We will explain what this means to you as users and why we are changing the path forward. To help facilitate this transition, we will cover OpenTelemetry auto-instrumentation best practices to build a scalable trace pipeline to deliver this data to a Jaeger backend. Moving Jaeger from a tracing system to a monitoring system has been a big push for the project in the last year. Made possible by OpenTelemetry and the processor layer which allows for the creation of metrics derived from traces in the pipeline. Operational monitoring is now possible using the new monitoring tab, which adds metrics capabilities to Jaeger UI via another graduated project, Prometheus. We are always seeking new collaborators, contributors, and users. We need your help, please join us!
