OpenTelemetry based Distributed Tracing for WSO2 Micro Integrator
Tracing is one of the three pillars of observability. Tracing artifacts of WSO2 Micro Integrator is important to observe, identify possible bottlenecks in a message flow, and debug them. WSO2 Micro Integrator facilitates tracing message flows and publishing the traces based on the OpenTelemetry standard, using multiple tracers, namely: OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP), Jaeger, Zipkin, Log & Custom Tracer. This screencast outlines important concepts of OpenTelemetry based distributed tracing in WSO2 Micro Integrator, followed by a demonstration of publishing traces using the OTLP Tracer to New Relic APM, when invoking a simple API.
