OpenTelemetry Collector

The OpenTelemetry Collector offers a vendor-agnostic implementation on how to receive, process, and export telemetry data. In addition, it removes the need to run, operate, and maintain multiple agents/collectors in order to support open-source telemetry data formats (e.g. Jaeger, Prometheus, etc.) sending to multiple open-source or commercial back-ends.


  • Usable: Reasonable default configuration, supports popular protocols, runs and collects out of the box.
  • Performant: Highly stable and performant under varying loads and configurations.
  • Observable: An exemplar of an observable service.
  • Extensible: Customizable without touching the core code.
  • Unified: Single codebase, deployable as an agent or collector with support for traces, metrics, and logs (future).
