OpenTelemetry Auto-Instrumentation for Go

This project adds OpenTelemetry instrumentation to Go applications without having to modify their source code. We support a wide range of Go versions (1.12+) and even work on stripped binaries.

Our goal is to provide the same level of automatic instrumentation for Go as exists for languages such as Java and Python.

This automatic instrumentation is based on eBPF uprobes.

For more information, see our How it works document.

Getting Started

Check out our Getting Started on Kubernetes guide for easily instrumenting your first Go applications.

Current Instrumentations

net/http - Server
gRPC - Client
gRPC - Server
Gorilla Mux
