Understanding how your microservices based application is executing in a highly distributed and elastic cloud environment can be complicated. Distributed tracing has emerged as an invaluable technique that succeeds where traditional monitoring tools falter. In this talk we present Jaeger, our open source, OpenTracing-native distributed tracing system. We will demonstrate how Jaeger can be used to solve a variety of observability problems, including distributed transaction monitoring, root cause analysis, performance optimization, service dependency analysis, and distributed context propagation. We will discuss the features released in Jaeger 1.0, its architecture, deployment options, integrations with other CNCF projects, and the roadmap.
