New Relic vs DataDog: Both tools are popular for application and infrastructure monitoring, offering a wide range of features. This post compares New Relic and DataDog on key aspects like APM, log management, infrastructure monitoring, and OpenTelemetry support. Info I instrumented a sample Spring Boot Application and sent data to Datadog and New Relic to evaluate my experience. Some takeaways are subjective and based on personal preference.

Modern digital organizations have rapidly adopted microservices-based architecture for their applications. Microservices-based apps have components designed around business capabilities serving a specific purpose. It enables smaller engineering teams to own specific services that lead to increased productivity. But componentization also leads to complexity. Today’s modern internet-scale businesses have hundreds or thousands of microservices.

Working in the observability and monitoring space for the last few years, we have had multiple users complain about the lack of detailed monitoring for messaging queues and Kafka in particular. Especially with the coming of instrumentation standards like OpenTelemetry, we thought there must a better way to solve this. We dived deeper into the problem and were trying to understand what better can be done here to make understanding and remediating issues in messaging systems much easier.

Spans are fundamental building blocks of distributed tracing. A single trace in distributed tracing consists of a series of tagged time intervals known as spans. Spans represent a logical unit of work in completing a user request or transaction. Distributed tracing is critical to application performance monitoring in microservice-based architecture. Before we deep dive into spans, let's have a brief overview of distributed tracing.

Both DataDog and Jaeger are tools used to monitor application performance. The difference lies in what they monitor and terms of usage. Jaeger is an open-source tool focused on distributed tracing of requests in a microservice architecture. While DataDog is a SaaS APM vendor covering most monitoring needs of an application. Application performance monitoring is the process of keeping your app's health in check. APM tools enable you to be proactive about meeting the demands of your customers.

For day 4, we will showcase the recent work we have done in Logs Pipeline. With Log Pipelines, you can transform logs to suit your querying and aggregation needs before they get stored in the database. Pipelines provide a way to modify the structure and content of log data without needing to change application code or redeploy components. By extracting relevant attributes from logs, pipelines enable more efficient analysis.

In this video, you will see a demo of how to monitor Kafka with OpenTelemetry. We will instrument a NodeJS application using Kafka and get client side metrics like delay between producer emitting a message to consumer receiving it via distributed tracing. We will also get Kafka server metrics like consumer lag and plot it dashboards.

Open-source Observability platform. Understand issues in your deployed applications & solve them quickly.
