Converting applications into AWS Lambda functions has many positive features, but also raises some questions. One important question is observability: how do I instrument my functions and monitor my system in a Lambda-friendly manner?
Most monitoring and APM products were not built with a serverless environment in mind.
Enter OpenTelemetry: a new standard in observability. OpenTelemetry connects to every major monitoring and observability backend, and is supported on Lambda by AWS. Learn from core project contributors about what OpenTelemetry is, and how it integrates with Lambda to provide best in class observability and monitoring.
