C# Tracing with the OpenTelemetry .NET SDK and Seq

published on 2024/02/07

OpenTelemetry has emerged as an important standard for generating observability data. It provides a consistent model across all environments and reduces vendor lock-in. As such, we think it is important for Seq to support OpenTelemetry clients in addition to the other ingestion options that Seq provides.

2024.1 extends Seq's OpenTelemetry support to include traces as well as logs. Distributed tracing makes Seq even better for monitoring and troubleshooting the behavior and performance of complex distributed systems.

It's great that Seq finally supports OpenTelemetry. It is a great server product.
