[Online Workshop] OpenTelemetry and New Relic: The future of Observability

New Relic University - Instrument and Alert

OpenTelemetry, often referred to as OTel, is a vendor-neutral open source observability framework for instrumenting, generating, collecting, and exporting telemetry data (metrics, logs, and traces). As an industry standard steadily gaining in popularity, it is natively supported by a number of observability vendors including New Relic.

Join this 2 hour online workshop to get hands-on experience with OpenTelemetry instrumented entities in a sandbox environment on the New Relic Platform. This course will provide you with the practical skills and knowledge needed to get started with, and make informed decisions regarding the use of OpenTelemetry in your tech stack.

In this workshop we will cover:

  • An introduction to the OpenTelemetry Project
  • New Relic’s parity with OpenTelemetry
  • What is the OpenTelemetry Collector
  • Lab: Working with OpenTelemetry entities and workloads
  • Lab: Using the New Relic Explorer
