APM, Application Performance Monitoring System
SkyWalking: an APM(application performance monitor) system, especially designed for microservices, cloud native and container-based (Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos) architectures.
SkyWalking is an open source APM system, including monitoring, tracing, diagnosing capabilities for distributed system in Cloud Native architecture. The core features are following.
SkyWalking supports to collect telemetry (traces and metrics) data from multiple sources and multiple formats, including 1. Java, .NET Core, NodeJS, PHP, and Python auto-instrument agents. 1. Go agent. 1. LUA agent especially for Nginx, OpenResty. 1. Service Mesh Observability. Support Mixer telemetry. Recommend to use Envoy Access Log Service (ALS) for better performance, first introduced at KubeCon 2019. 1. Metrics system, including Prometheus, OpenTelemetry, Spring Sleuth(Micrometer). 1. Browser application performance, including metrics and error logs. 1. Zipkin v1/v2 and Jaeger gRPC format with limited topology and metrics analysis.(Experimental).
SkyWalking OAP is using the STAM(Streaming Topology Analysis Method) to analysis topology in the tracing based agent scenario for better performance. Read the paper of STAM for more details.
NOTICE, SkyWalking 8.0+ uses v3 protocols. They are incompatible with previous releases.
