A single distribution of libraries that automatically collects traces and metrics from your app, displays them locally, and sends them to any analysis tool. Watch this video for an overview.
OpenCensus is being developed by a group of cloud providers, Application Performance Management vendors, and open source contributors. The project is hosted on GitHub and all work occurs there.
Contributions are highly appreciated! Please follow the steps for Contributing Here.
Standard wire protocols and consistent APIs for handling trace and metric data.
A single set of libraries for many languages, including Java, C++, Go. In progress - Python, PHP, Erlang, and Ruby.
Included integrations with web and RPC frameworks, democratizing good tracing and metric collection.
Included exporters for storage and analysis tools. Right now the list includes Zipkin, Prometheus, Jaeger, Stackdriver, and SignalFx.
All the code is entirely open source, to easily add your own integrations and exporters.
No additional server or daemon is required to support OpenCensus.
In process debugging: an optional agent for displaying request and metrics data on instrumented hosts.
