Jaeger

OpenTracing compatible distributed tracing system

Github Repo ยท Documentation

Jaeger, inspired by Dapper and OpenZipkin, is an OpenTracing compatible distributed tracing system used for monitoring microservice-based architectures.

  • Distributed context propagation
  • Distributed transaction monitoring
  • Root cause analysis
  • Service dependency analysis
  • Performance / latency optimization

Please see a blog post, Evolving Distributed Tracing at Uber, where we explain the history and reasons for the architectural choices made in Jaeger.

See official documentation on getting started.
