Node.JS OpenTelemetry (OTel) -
Troubleshooting Node.JS-based applications can be tough if you don’t have proper observability. One rather simple way to gain observability capabilities is by implementing OpenTelemetry (OTel) OSS. OTel has become essential for Node.JS developers, enabling them to generate, collect, and export observability data (metrics, logs, and traces) in cloud-native and microservices-based architectures. Some E2E observability solutions are based on OTel and enrich it to match developers’ needs.
OTel Node.JS auto-instrumentation
We at Helios are leveraging OTel to deliver maximal value for developers working on distributed systems and microservices- We simplify the implementation, offer trace based visualization and collect granular data of the entire payload for fast troubleshooting. Our approach for OTel auto-instrumentation in Node.JS is easy to implement or maintain and doesn’t require any code changes.
Investigate issues, reproduce scenarios, and generate tests faster with actionable data across your microservices, messaging systems, data pipelines, and databases – Minimize MTTR and dramatically improve troubleshooting efficiency.
Troubleshooting in Node.JS
Root Cause Analysis Quickly pinpoint the root cause of your issues using Stack trace, error logs, and trace correlation
Replay Flows Find failed requests, generate snippets, and re-run them with the same or different parameters
Identify bottlenecks in app flows Instantly identify and analyze bottlenecks
Pinpoint Failed Tests Efficiently pinpoint the root cause of failed tests and gain insight into tests running in CI/CD
Trace-based Testing Eliminate the need to build testing infrastructure by creating trace-based tests from real traffic
Autogenerate Tests From traces to improve validation
Completely. The Helios OpenTelemetry SDK is built on top of OpenTelemetry’s Python SDK, and uses industry-standard instrumentation techniques.
No. Helios is free to use.
Our instrumentation is configured to collect all the data you may need to troubleshoot your application and to make sure that context is propagated properly across different services and provides the best way to locate issues and identify their root cause faster than ever.
We support the same versions that are supported by OpenTelemetry, Python 3.7 or later.
