OpenTelemetry Collector#

OpenTelemetry provides a framework for creating and managing telemetry data such as traces, metrics and logs. It has several components, including librarie for instrumenting your application and a vendor-agnostic Collector. The Collector sends data to Observe using the OpenTelemetry endpoint.
