Summary

This single subject course targeted to DevOps enables you to learn configuration techniques to send traces to Splunk APM. Through in-person discussions and hands-on activities, learn to deploy the Splunk OpenTelemetry Collector on a Linux host. Use the OpenTelemetry Collector to configure processor components to modify trace metadata. Use auto-instrumentation to send in traces without altering your code. Enable AlwaysOn profiling to monitor code performance. This course assumes familiarity with navigating Splunk APM which is covered in the course Using Splunk Application Performance Monitoring.

This lab-oriented class is designed to help you learn the fundamentals of configuring your code to send in traces and trace metadata. All hands-on labs are in Python and Java.
