Identifying causes of latency impacting user experience in a distributed system is challenging. OpenTelemetry offers an easy way to instrument your services and capture traces to figure out exactly from where the latency issues are coming. In this episode of Engineering for Reliability, Yuri demonstrates how to create traces for user requests and spans for service-to-service requests to determine which services contribute the most to the overall latency experienced by users. Watch to learn how to use automatic and manual instrumentation with OpenTelemetry for your services.
