Engineering organizations are trading the old monoliths with Microservices for scalability, reliability and agility, but debugging the system calls across the Microservices is not straight-forward. Opentracing provides framework to debug and trace the system calls across the Microservices.


Major debugging issues which engineering teams face after splitting the monolith into microservices are following:

Famous distributed tracing systems

Why Opentracing?

Opentracing Concepts


Lets say we have 3 Microservices

Source Code :

We will be using above source code to get the execution time for PaymentService and OrderService, when they are called from the MyService.



From the above Gantt chart we can observe the following:
