Opencensus: a stats collection and distributed tracing framework

In microservices architectures, it is difficult to understand how services use resources across shared infrastructure. In monolithic systems, we depend on traditional tools that report per-process resource usage and latency characteristics that are limited to a single process. In order to be able to collect and analyze resource utilization and performance characteristics of distributed systems, OpenCensus tracks resource utilization through the chain of services processing a user request.


  • Provide an overview of distributed tracing;
  • Provide an overview of metrics collection;
  • Introduce OpenCensus and why choose it over competitors ;
  • Have audience members coming away knowing how to get started tracing, instrumenting and reporting from their Erlang applications.
