Observability Team Update - Weeks 5-6 (2024)

Hi everyone! :wave:

Below are the team’s updates for weeks 5 to 6 of 2024. First, as always, let’s introduce the fantastic team and what we’re building.

:muscle: The Team

The Observability team at Canonical consists of Dylan, Jose, Leon, Luca, Pietro, Ibrahim, Mateusz, and Simme. Our goal is to provide you with the best open-source observability stack possible, turning your day-2 operations into smooth sailing.

:hammer_and_wrench: The Work

This was a bug-smashing week above all, but we also managed to push through some features. Notably:

  • Mateusz contributed tracing instrumentation for Grafana and Loki, and adjusted the charm_tracing lib to use http instead of grpc (which had a large impact on charm size)
  • Our very Simme got his hands dirty and created a Grafana agent ARM build
  • Luca added metrics for self-monitoring of mimir worker nodes.

Features that nearly made it through the finish line but will be closed as part of the next pulse are:

:pray: Feedback welcome

As always, feedback is very welcome! Feel free to let us know your thoughts, questions, or suggestions either here or on our brand new Matrix channel.

That’s all for this time! See you again in two weeks! :partying_face:
