The Observability Path to Freedom


You instrumented your metrics and now you are vendor locked? Were you locked into an expensive APM solution? So were we!

Come to this talk to hear our observability story of freedom. We not only re-instrumented hundreds of services with OpenTelemetry and OTEL Collector but converted developers’ dashboards and alerts and successfully migrated from a proprietary solution to an open sourced solution. We think that this model can be used with any of the variety of open source tools that support the OpenTelemetry framework.  We will share with you cautionary tales of the lessons we learned along the way and the anti-patterns we discovered.
