Instrument Java application for OpenTelemetry

To monitor your Java application with Site24x7 OpenTelemetry, follow the steps below.

Step 1:
Download the opentelemetry-collector.jar file. This jar file contains the agent and all instrumentation packages.

Step 2:
Export the agent through JAVA_OPTS by adding the following code snippet to the application's startup file.

-Dotel.traces.exporter=otlp \
-Dotel.exporter.otlp.traces.endpoint= \
-Dotel.metrics.exporter=otlp \
-Dotel.resource.attributes="<service_name>" \
-Dotel.javaagent.debug=false \

  • Replace the service_name with the name of your application.
  • Define the correct endpoint and license key to make sure your data arrives where it should be.

Step 3:
Run your application.

You are all set. Now the agent will start sending the performance metrics to your Site24x7 web client portal.
