Microsoft introduced the 1.0 specification for OpenTelemetry .NET, the canonical distribution of the OpenTelemetry SDK implementation in .NET.
The 1.0 launch consists of OpenTelemetry .NET APIs: Tracing API, Baggage API, Context API and Propagators API. Builders may also have entry to an SDK that gives controls for sampling, processing and exporting in addition to documentation, which incorporates samples and guides for plugin authors. The discharge additionally consists of exporters to Jaeger, Zipkin and the OpenTelemetry Protocol (OTLP).
The specification for .NET follows February’s announcement that the OpenTelemetry specification reached v1.0, which supplied stability ensures for distributed tracing.

OpenTelemetry was the results of OpenTracing and OpenCensus merging in 2019.
“As trendy software environments are polyglot, distributed, and more and more advanced, observing your software to establish and react to failures has change into difficult,” Sourabh Shirhatti, a senior program supervisor at Microsoft, wrote in a weblog publish. “By standardizing how completely different functions and frameworks acquire and emit observability telemetry, OpenTelemetry goals to unravel among the challenges posed by these environments.”
Shirhatti went on to clarify the primary advantages of the specification: it’s interoperable, permitting customers to watch their distributed software with full interoperability; it’s vendor impartial in order that as customers select their telemetry backend, they don’t have to alter their instrumentation code; and OpenTelemetry is future proof in order that when newer libraries and frameworks emerge, customers can simply monitor them utilizing shared instrumentation libraries.
“We’re tremendous excited to proceed to enhance the observability of all functions constructed on .NET and OpenTelemetry is a huge stride for us in that route,” Shirhatti added.
