Logs, OpenMetrics,
and OpenTelemetry

Eduardo Silva & Anurag Gupta, Calyptia


Observability continues to be an interesting challenge. Data collection for logs, metrics, and traces is an expensive operation and different approaches exist.

Fluentd and Fluent Bit have been the long-term defacto standard for logging, but recently the projects expanded their scope to support and assist with Metrics and Traces. In 2022, Fluent Bit now supports data collection, aggregation, and delivery for the world of OpenMetrics (Prometheus) and OpenTelemetry.

In this presentation, you will learn how to collect and aggregate Logs, Metrics, and Traces all together without losing control of your data by connecting different protocols at scale.

Fluentd and Fluent Bit embrace OpenMetrics and OpenTelemetry vision, come to learn how to optimize your observability pipelines, and implement the best practices for your production environments.
