Jaeger was built from day 1 to be able to ingest huge amounts of data in a resilient way. To better utilize resources that might cause delays, such as storage or network communications, Jaeger buffers and batches data. When more spans are generated than Jaeger is able to safely process, spans might get dropped. However, the defaults might not fit all scenarios: for instance, agents running as a sidecar might have more memory constraints than agents running as a daemon in bare metal.

Jaeger is composed of different components, each potentially running in its own host. It might be the case that one of these moving parts isn’t working properly, causing spans to not be processed and stored. When something goes wrong, make sure to check the items listed here.

The Jaeger Agent is the component that is responsible for receiving the spans from the instrumented application and forwarding it to the Jaeger Collector, so that the data gets appropriately stored.

Distributed tracing can capture a wealth of data and has the potential to yield invaluable insights. But, bridging the gap between the ocean of spans and the epiphanies they offer is not yet a solved problem. As of Jaeger 1.7, the ability to compare traces is now available in the Jaeger UI. We are hopeful trace comparisons will facilitate going from data to decisions.
This talk comes from practical experience of running a cloud-based SAAS under Kubernetes for the last two years. Prometheus is good for the big picture view of how things are running, while Jaeger acts like a microscope on the internal workings of your system.

Shows how a microservices architecture can be instrumented to generate Opentracing events which are monitored and presented using Jaeger. The demo is based on one of our github projects - see estafet.com/github and download the source which runs on minishift.

Opentracing gives us a standard for recording interactions across a distributed microservice architecture, whilst Jaeger is a monitoring tool that shows us the flow of events. It gives huge insight to both devs and ops teams, and is also a potentially cheaper way of demonstrating compliance with MiFID and GDPR.
