OpenTelemetry is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open standard that consists of a collection of open source tools, SDKs, and APIs used to parse high-cardinality data and generate traces, metrics, and logs.

Honeycomb's OpenTelemetry integration makes your telemetry data actionable. It provides you with a set of compatible libraries and agents which can be used to instrument your applications and collect telemetry data. This data is then parsed into visualizations that can be used to see how a request travels through distributed systems, identify outliers, and gain an overview of the interconnectivity of your environment.
