Use pre-built OpenTelemetry Collector dashboards
Lightstep provides pre-built OpenTelemetry Collector dashboards using our Terraform provider. These modules allow you to monitor the health of your OpenTelemetry Collector using metrics such as CPU/memory usage, CPU/memory limits, network usage, and IOPS.
The OpenTelemetry Collector modules are currently in beta.
- You have the OpenTelemetry Collector reporting metrics to Lightstep Observability.
- If you are not yet using OpenTelemetry Collectors, please see the recommended deployment setup for instructions.
- If you are already using OpenTelemetry Collectors, configure them to send to Lightstep Observability.
Deploying the OpenTelemetry Collector modules
In Lightstep, you can view your metrics in either a notebook or dashboard.
When using notebooks you can click on any Kubernets metrics in the
all telemetrydropdown. Check the
scrape_series_addedmetric first, which lets you know many Kubernetes metrics are being ingested.
For dashboards, there are several pre-built dashboards that display Kubernetes metrics. For example, to see Pod metrics, in the Dashboard view, click Create a pre-built dashboard, and choose “K8S Pod Resources”.
