High-quality, ubiquitous, and portable telemetry to enable effective observability

Get started based on your role

OpenTelemetry is a collection of APIs, SDKs, and tools. Use it to instrument, generate, collect, and export telemetry data (metrics, logs, and traces) to help you analyze your software’s performance and behavior.

OpenTelemetry is generally available across several languages and is suitable for use.

Traces, Metrics, Logs

Create and collect telemetry data from your services and software, then forward them to a variety of analysis tools.

Drop-In Instrumentation

OpenTelemetry integrates with popular libraries and frameworks such as Spring, ASP.NET Core, Express, Quarkus, and more! Installation and integration can be as simple as a few lines of code.

Open Source, Vendor Neutral

100% Free and Open Source, OpenTelemetry is adopted and supported by industry leaders in the observability space.

OpenTelemetry is a CNCF incubating project.
Formed through a merger of the OpenTracing and OpenCensus projects.
