Come say Hi to us on Slack
- Application overview metrics like RPS, 50th/90th/99th Percentile latencies, and Error Rate
- Slowest endpoints in your application
- See exact request trace to figure out issues in downstream services, slow DB queries, call to 3rd party services like payment gateways, etc
- Filter traces by service name, operation, latency, error, tags/annotations.
- Run aggregates on trace data (events/spans) to get business relevant metrics. e.g. You can get error rate and 99th percentile latency of
- Unified UI for metrics and traces. No need to switch from Prometheus to Jaeger to debug issues.
Being developers, we found it annoying to rely on closed source SaaS vendors for every small feature we wanted. Closed source vendors often surprise you with huge month end bills without any transparency.
We wanted to make a self-hosted & open source version of tools like DataDog, NewRelic for companies that have privacy and security concerns about having customer data going to third party services.
Being open source also gives you complete control of your configuration, sampling, uptimes. You can also build modules over SigNoz to extend business specific capabilities
We support OpenTelemetry as the library which you can use to instrument your applications. So any framework and language supported by OpenTelemetry is also supported by SigNoz. Some of the main supported languages are:
You can find the complete list of languages here - https://opentelemetry.io/docs/
Deploy using Docker
Please follow the steps listed here to install using docker
The troubleshooting instructions may be helpful if you face any issues.
Deploy in Kubernetes using Helm

Comparisons to Familiar Tools
SigNoz vs Prometheus
Prometheus is good if you want to do just metrics. But if you want to have a seamless experience between metrics and traces, then current experience of stitching together Prometheus & Jaeger is not great.
Our goal is to provide an integrated UI between metrics & traces - similar to what SaaS vendors like Datadog provides - and give advanced filtering and aggregation over traces, something which Jaeger currently lack.
SigNoz vs Jaeger
Jaeger only does distributed tracing. SigNoz does both metrics and traces, and we also have log management in our roadmap.
Moreover, SigNoz has few more advanced features wrt Jaeger:
- Jaegar UI doesn’t show any metrics on traces or on filtered traces
- Jaeger can’t get aggregates on filtered traces. For example, p99 latency of requests which have tag - customer_type='premium'. This can be done easily on SigNoz
