Istio service meshes enable organizations to secure, connect, and monitor microservices, so they can modernize their enterprise apps more swiftly and securely. With the addition of distributed tracing and powerful observability tooling, platform operators can gain immediate actionable insights about their applications. Understand how each microservice is called, and which downstream services it depends upon. Visualize the entire stack trace, and discover unknown patterns about how your services interact with each other.
In this session, we enable distributed tracing telemetry from Istio to be emitted into an OpenTelemetry collector. This architecture allows for the telemetry to be consumed by any OpenTelemetry compatible backend.
