Helping out, where OpenTracing can’t scale anymore
As a library API interface that offers documentation for distributed tracing systems, OpenTracing has gained a lot of attention over the past years. OpenTracing became an important documentation and library interface for distributed tracing instrumentation and gives you the opportunity to work with others seamlessly.
Although OpenTracing is a mighty solution which offers expressive, consistent, and basically vendor-neutral APIs for popular platforms, there are also more comprehensive solutions. Tracing means the whole transaction or workflow as it propagates through an entire system. This can be very resource consuming. As an OpenTracing alternative Dynatrace gives the opportunity to scale for such workloads. Whatever the environment needs, Dynatrace is capable of tracing it.
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 is 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.
Since tracing contains the storyline of a transaction or a full workflow as it propagates through the system, OpenTracing is targeting users who work with instrumentation libraries. Authors who would like to collaborate with traces created by them are therefore an important target audience focussed by OpenTracing. By expanding the functionality of OpenTracing with structure logging, the general use cases have been increased. The combination or integration of other tools that automatically put trace identifiers into the given logging context is possible anytime. Dynatrace is one of those OpenTracing integration possibilities or even OpenTracing alternatives.
