Dayton, OH Following the successful release of Nanoscope, the best-in-class webMethods profiling and application performance management (APM) tool, Nibble Technologies has tackled the challenge of observability in the age of distributed computing with Otelscope. The first OpenTelemetry compliant implementation for SoftwareAG’s webMethods integration and API management platforms.
What is OpenTelemetry?
OpenTelemetry is an Observability framework and toolkit designed to create and manage telemetry data such as traces, metrics, and logs. OpenTelemetry is vendor and tool-agnostic, meaning that it can be used with a broad variety of Observability backends, including open source tools like Tempo, Loki and Prometheus, as well as commercial offerings.1
OpenTelemetry and webMethods
OpenTelemetry has an ever-growing ecosystem of instrumentation code for popular software components and libraries. But for industry leading integration and API management platforms such as webMethods, the challenge becomes where and how to instrument the product to maximize ease of observability while minimizing impact to throughput and product performance. With more than 25+ years of webMethods experience, and in-depth experience with webMethods instrumentation, Nibble Technologies was uniquely positioned to solve that challenge.
“Given that webMethods customers love the ease of use of the product, our focus was to keep the implementation minimally invasive and native to the webMethods development experience while providing the full set of OpenTelemetry features. Otelscope provides seamless and automatic instrumentation that does not require server restarts and gives the developer total control over the observability signals supported by OpenTelemetry - namely metrics, traces and logs. With Otelscope, webMethods becomes a full participant in a distributed landscape of applications observed by OpenTelemetry.”
-Rupinder Singh, Nibble Technologies CTO-
With OtelScope deployed across the webMethods landscape, administrators have better visibility to traces, metrics and logs across distributed nodes and even across different networks.
