Dear Performance Engineers,

we are happy to welcome you to the next virtual software performance meetup. The meetup will take place on February 1st and will be held using Workadventure. Please RSV on the meetup page for the access link.

As last time, we’re happy to announce a speaker of our own: Bernhard Lubomski will talk about the integration of OpenTelemetry in AWS, GCP and Azure, which helps to make cloud-native Java applications observable.

Agenda

1. Introduction

2. Presentation:

Observing Cloud-Native Java Apps using OpenTelemetry on AWS, GCP and Azure
Bernhard Lubomski (RETIT)

All major cloud providers (AWS, GCP, Azure) have recently introduced support for OpenTelemetry, a young opensource observability framework, which provides insights into any software during runtime by means of distributed traces, metrics and logs. The OpenTelemetry Java auto-instrumentation capability supports a wide selection of popular Java frameworks (e.g., Java EE, Spring, Quarkus) and makes it very easy to collect telemetry data for your Java applications. In this talk, we will introduce the architectural fundamentals of OpenTelemetry and show how it can be integrated into your Java cloud applications on AWS, GCP and Azure. We will explain how the cloud providers leverage the traces and metrics collected from an application instrumented with OpenTelemetry and which tools they offer, enabling you to explore this information and analyze how your Java software behaves in the cloud.
