The AWS Lambda layers provided by ADOT are preconfigured for use with AWS services, including AWS X-Ray to support observability of user applications. These layers bundle the trimmed version of the OpenTelemetry Collector available in ADOT. Users can onboard to OpenTelemetry in their existing Lambda functions by adding these ready-made layers directly. Learn about the getting started experience and using X-Ray to trace Lambda functions using OpenTelemetry in our blog post, Tracing AWS Lambda functions in AWS X-Ray with OpenTelemetry.
Additionally, sample apps with Terraform and SAM support are now available for several regions. Sixteen regions are currently supported for this release. This list of regions can change for future releases.
AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry (ADOT) Collector version 0.10.0 now supports StatsD timing metrics. The StatsD timing metrics will be aggregated in the StatsD receiver and converted into OTel Gauge metrics for various service endpoints.
Learn more about AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry on the AWS Open Source Blog, where we announced the distribution’s availability for public preview in October 2020, followed by a re:Invent release announcement in December 2020
Configure and deploy the latest version of ADOT for container services including Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS), and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) using AWS CloudFormation templates, the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), or kubectl commands. Extensive technical documentation is available on the ADOT developer site, and you can download the distribution from GitHub.
