There has been great movement over the past two years in the tracing landscape. In this relatively short period of time, projects such as OpenTracing, Jaeger, and OpenCensus have joined Zipkin in the open source world. Additionally, there are multiple adjacent projects from observability and infrastructure that help proliferate the need and set up for tracing. Examples are Prometheus, Envoy, and a new w3c trace context standard. This talk will explain the complex landscape.
We will cover:
* The need for distributed tracing
* The changes in tracing open source over the past two years
* The core open-source tracing projects, their respective value propositions, and how they fit together and relate to one another
* How other projects in infrastructure help reduce time to value for tracing projects
* Best practices for today’s software practitioners
