  • Agents for your stack
    • Java, .Net Core, PHP, NodeJS, Golang, LUA, Rust, C++, Client JavaScript and Python agents with active development and maintenance.
  • eBPF early adoption
    • Rover agent works as metrics collector and profiler powered by eBPF to diagnose CPU and network performance.
  • Scaling
    • 100+ billion telemetry data could be collected and analyzed from one SkyWalking cluster.
  • Mature Telemetry Ecosystems Supported
    • Metrics, Traces, and Logs from mature ecosystems are supported, e.g. Zipkin, OpenTelemetry, Prometheus, Zabbix, Fluentd
  • Native APM Database
    • BanyanDB, an observability database, created in 2022, aims to ingest, analyze and store telemetry/observability data.
  • Consistent Metrics Aggregation
    • SkyWalking native meter format and widely known metrics format(OpenTelemetry, Telegraf, Zabbix, e.g.) are processed through the same script pipeline.
  • Log Management Pipeline
    • Support log formatting, extract metrics, various sampling policies through script pipeline in high performance.
  • Alerting and Telemetry Pipelines
    • Support service-centric, deployment-centric, API-centric alarm rule setting. Support forwarding alarms and all telemetry data to 3rd party.
