OpenTracing and OpenCensus have merged to form OpenTelemetry!
OpenTracing as de facto standard
As a library API interface that offers documentation for distributed tracing systems, OpenTracing became an important documentation and library interface and a de facto standard.
Dynatrace is working on a seamless integration, while providing out-of-the-box tracing for the most important languages right now.
- No code changes
- Enterprise scale

Go beyond distributed tracing with Dynatrace
As soon as Dynatrace will release its seamless support for OpenTracing, you will be able to include OpenTracing data in the AI engine for application optimization and faster problem resolution.
Dynatrace provides tracing and AI-powered monitoring at scale. With OpenTracing as a de facto standard for distributed tracing you will be able to cover all corner cases in one comprehensive solution.
Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Just like Dynatrace, OpenTracing recently joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, also referred to as CNCF, builds out multiple paths for adopting cloud native computing projects. OpenTracing focuses on making loosely-coupled microservices easier to manage with consistent and vendor-neutral APIs for distributed tracing and context propagation since 2015. The practise of developers using tracing software to better understand performance, reliability, and unexpected behavior in distributed systems is an important part of OpenTracing's efforts. Being a part of CNCF, Dynatrace supports all given standards and therefore works flawless with OpenTracing data.

Dynatrace as OpenTracing alternative in web scale environments
While OpenTracing is a mighty solution which offers expressive, consistent, and basically vendor-neutral APIs for popular platforms, you may experience scaling issues. Since tracing allows to follow the whole transaction or workflow as it propagates through an entire system, this can be very resource consuming.
As an alternative to OpenTracing, Dynatrace is built to scale for such workloads. Whatever the environment needs, Dynatrace is capable of tracing it. Technically and also by providing answers instead of data with the power of AI.
What is OpenTracing?
OpenTracing is a library API interface that offers documentation for distributed tracing systems. Bundling the OpenTracing library interfaces into your work leads to the fact that others can use it for time distributed operations with the same library. This makes it easy for developers to add or simply switch tracing implementations with a single configuration change. The bigger environments are getting, the more a scalable solution is an important alternative.
Dynatrace works seamlessly as OpenTracing replacement and offers the advantages of scalability, full-stack integration and best-in-class digital experience.
