This is the tale of instrumenting cri-o with vendor neutral OpenTelemetry. With an abundance of blogs, documentation, and examples to follow it seemed an easy task, but as it turned out there was a sharp learning curve. From spans to traces and receivers, collectors, and exporters this session will outline the paths taken and lessons learned. It will demonstrate and detail the importance of observability throughout a distributed system, starting from the ground up with cri-o. The audience will leave with the knowledge and motivation required to instrument code with OpenTelemetry. The importance of OpenTelemetry to the open source ecosystem will also be discussed. The more services and components that add OpenTelemetry tracing, the easier and more efficient Kubernetes will become. This opens doors for further collaboration and innovation.
