JavaScript currently stands as one the most commonly-used language in the world according to many developers around the world. As organizations continue to adopt microservice based architectures, the speed and reliability with which large, complex applications are delivered can become overwhelming to understand and effectively monitor.

In this Splunk Tech Talk, DevOps Edition, we will use a basic NodeJS microservices based application deployment to learn how to instrument Javascript using the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry JS. We will take a deep dive into the basic code changes and steps required to begin collecting telemetry and understand our customer’s experience.

Tune in to learn how to:

  • Instrument your NodeJS application programmatically with the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry for JavaScript within a microservices based deployment
  • Deploy the Splunk Distribution of the OpenTelemetry Collector to capture critical infrastructure and application telemetry
  • Configure browser instrumentation with Splunk Real User Monitoring and gain insight into the performance and health of the front-end user experience to best understand your customer’s experience
