Application metrics and distributed traces are immensely powerful for developers but are difficult to automatically retrieve. Based on technology used at Google, OpenCensus—an open source collaboration between multiple cloud and APM vendors and the OSS community—aims to make the collection and submission of app metrics and traces easier for developers.
Morgan McLean and Jaana Burcu Dogan detail how to quickly instrument your distributed services and gain visibility into their operation with OpenCensus.
Morgan McLean is a project manager for distributed tracing, debugging, and profiling at Google, which includes the OpenCensus project.
Jaana B. Dogan is a software engineer at Google, where she works on observability of Go production services. She has a decade of experience building developer platforms and tools.
