To get distributed tracing data into Lightstep Observability, you need to instrument your code to send telemetry data to Lightstep Observability Microsatellites. Lightstep Observability supports OpenTelemetry as the way to get that data from your app as requests travel through its many services and other infrastructure.

Already instrumented using OpenTelemetry Collectors? It’s easy to configure them to report to Lightstep Observability.
