OpenTelemetry Go Automatic Instrumentation

PkgGoDev

This repository provides OpenTelemetry instrumentation for Go libraries using eBPF.

🚧 This project is currently work in progress.

Compatibility

OpenTelemetry Go Automatic Instrumentation is compatible with all current supported versions of the Go language.

Each major Go release is supported until there are two newer major releases. For example, Go 1.5 was supported until the Go 1.7 release, and Go 1.6 was supported until the Go 1.8 release.

For versions of Go that are no longer supported upstream, this repository will stop ensuring compatibility with these versions in the following manner:

  • A minor release will be made to add support for the new supported release of Go.
  • The following minor release will remove compatibility testing for the oldest (now archived upstream) version of Go. This, and future, releases may include features only supported by the currently supported versions of Go.

Currently, OpenTelemetry Go Automatic Instrumentation is tested for the following environments.

OS Go Version Architecture
Ubuntu 1.22 amd64
Ubuntu 1.21 amd64
Ubuntu 1.20 amd64

Automatic instrumentation should work on any Linux kernel above 4.4.

OpenTelemetry Go Automatic Instrumentation supports the arm64 architecture. However, there is no automated testing for this platform. Be sure to validate support on your own ARM based system.

Users of non-Linux operating systems can use the Docker images or create a virtual machine to compile and run OpenTelemetry Go Automatic Instrumentation.

Functions

func Version

func Version() string

Version is the current release version of OpenTelemetry Go auto-instrumentation in use.

Types

type Instrumentation

type Instrumentation struct {
	// contains filtered or unexported fields
}

Instrumentation manages and controls all OpenTelemetry Go auto-instrumentation.

func NewInstrumentation

func NewInstrumentation(ctx context.Context, opts ...InstrumentationOption) (*Instrumentation, error)

NewInstrumentation returns a new Instrumentation configured with the provided opts.

If conflicting or duplicate options are provided, the last one will have precedence and be used.

func (*Instrumentation) Close

func (i *Instrumentation) Close() error

Close closes the Instrumentation, cleaning up all used resources.

func (*Instrumentation) Run

func (i *Instrumentation) Run(ctx context.Context) error

Run starts the instrumentation.

type InstrumentationOption

type InstrumentationOption interface {
	// contains filtered or unexported methods
}

InstrumentationOption applies a configuration option to Instrumentation.

func WithEnv

func WithEnv() InstrumentationOption

WithEnv returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure Instrumentation using the values defined by the following environment variables:

  • OTEL_GO_AUTO_TARGET_EXE: sets the target binary
  • OTEL_SERVICE_NAME (or OTEL_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTES): sets the service name
  • OTEL_TRACES_EXPORTER: sets the trace exporter
  • OTEL_GO_AUTO_GLOBAL: enables the OpenTelemetry global implementation

This option may conflict with WithTarget, WithPID, WithTraceExporter, WithServiceName and WithGlobal if their respective environment variable is defined. If more than one of these options are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

The OTEL_TRACES_EXPORTER environment variable value is resolved using the autoexport package. See that package's documentation for information on supported values and registration of custom exporters.

func WithGlobal

func WithGlobal() InstrumentationOption

WithGlobal returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure an Instrumentation to record telemetry from the OpenTelemetry default global implementation. By default, the OpenTelemetry global implementation is a no-op implementation of the OpenTelemetry API. However, by using this option, all telemetry that would have been dropped by the global implementation will be recorded using telemetry pipelines from the configured Instrumentation.

If the target process overrides the default global implementation (e.g. [otel.SetTracerProvider]), the telemetry from that process will go to the set implementation. It will not be recorded using the telemetry pipelines from the configured Instrumentation even if this option is used.

The OpenTelemetry default global implementation is left unchanged (i.e. it remains a no-op implementation) if this options is not used.

If OTEL_GO_AUTO_GLOBAL is defined, this option will conflict with WithEnv. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

func WithLoadedIndicator

func WithLoadedIndicator(indicator chan struct{}) InstrumentationOption

WithLoadedIndicator returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure an Instrumentation to close the provided indicator channel when the target process has been instrumented (i.e. all probes have been loaded). The provided indicator channel needs to be initialized by the caller.

func WithPID

func WithPID(pid int) InstrumentationOption

WithPID returns an InstrumentationOption defining the target binary for Instrumentation that is being run with the provided PID.

This option conflicts with WithTarget. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

If multiple of these options are provided to an Instrumentation, the last one will be used.

If OTEL_GO_AUTO_TARGET_EXE is defined, this option will conflict with WithEnv. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

func WithResourceAttributes

func WithResourceAttributes(attrs ...attribute.KeyValue) InstrumentationOption

WithResourceAttributes returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure an Instrumentation to add the provided attributes to the OpenTelemetry resource.

func WithSampler

func WithSampler(sampler trace.Sampler) InstrumentationOption

WithSampler returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure an Instrumentation to use the provided sampler to sample OpenTelemetry traces.

func WithServiceName

func WithServiceName(serviceName string) InstrumentationOption

WithServiceName returns an InstrumentationOption defining the name of the service running.

If multiple of these options are provided to an Instrumentation, the last one will be used.

If OTEL_SERVICE_NAME is defined or the service name is defined in OTEL_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTES, this option will conflict with WithEnv. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

func WithTarget

func WithTarget(path string) InstrumentationOption

WithTarget returns an InstrumentationOption defining the target binary for Instrumentation that is being executed at the provided path.

This option conflicts with WithPID. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

If multiple of these options are provided to an Instrumentation, the last one will be used.

If OTEL_GO_AUTO_TARGET_EXE is defined, this option will conflict with WithEnv. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.

func WithTraceExporter

func WithTraceExporter(exp trace.SpanExporter) InstrumentationOption

WithTraceExporter returns an InstrumentationOption that will configure an Instrumentation to use the provided exp to export OpenTelemetry tracing telemetry.

If OTEL_TRACES_EXPORTER is defined, this option will conflict with WithEnv. If both are used, the last one provided to an Instrumentation will be used.
