Definition: What Is Telemetry?

Telemetry is the practice of collecting and measuring data from various sources to gain insights into the performance and behavior of a system. In the context of software tracing, telemetry involves capturing and analyzing data related to request flows, service dependencies, and latency. By implementing robust telemetry solutions, developers can effectively trace and monitor their applications, enabling them to identify bottlenecks, optimize performance, and ensure smooth operation. Embracing telemetry empowers developers to gain actionable insights and deliver highly performant and resilient software solutions.
