Why we standardized on OpenTelemetry -Hans Kristian Flaatten

Monitoring systems has always been fragmented, and vendor lock-in is a real issue. This is the story about how the largest branch of the Norwegian Government (NAV) is standardizing on OpenTelemetry to unlock observability data for everyone.

In 2016 NAV started adopting Kubernetes and microservices oriented architecture. This was a big change for the organization, and it was a challenge to monitor the new systems. Prometheus and Grafana were soon after chosen as the preferred monitoring stack, in addition to traditional logging of course. Fast forward to 2023, and NAV has close to 2000 microservices.

At this point NAV does not have a unified way of monitoring systems and it lacks standardization of metrics and logs. The third pillar of observability, Distributed tracing, is completely absent. This makes it hard for developers to understand the flow of requests through the system, and troubleshoot performance issues.

OpenTelemetry is a CNCF project that provides a standard for collecting telemetry data (metrics, logs, and traces) from applications. It has SDKs for all major programming languages, and is a vendor-neutral project supported by all major providers.
