Introducing Jaeger


Uber is pleased to announce the open source release of Jaeger, a distributed tracing system, used to monitor, profile, and troubleshoot microservices.

Jaeger is written in Go, with OpenTracing compatible client libraries in Go, Java, Node, and Python. It allows service owners to instrument their services to get insights into what their architecture is doing.

Jaeger is available now on Github as a public beta. Try it out by running the complete backend using the Docker image along with a sample application, HotROD, to generate interesting traces.

We hope that other organizations find Jaeger to be a useful tool, and we welcome contributions. Keep up to date by subscribing to our mailing list.
