Jaeger: The Future with OpenTelemetry and Metrics - Jonah Kowall, Logz.io & Joe Elliott, Grafana Labs

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 clients maintained by the upcoming OpenTelemetry project. 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 auto instrumentation of an application using an OpenTelemetry client and we will cover multiple 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 the 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!
