SkyWalking: an APM(application performance monitor) system, especially designed for microservices, cloud native and container-based 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.
- Service, service instance, endpoint metrics analysis
- Root cause analysis. Profile the code on the runtime
- Service topology map analysis
- Service, service instance and endpoint dependency analysis
- Slow services and endpoints detecting
- Performance optimization
- Distributed tracing and context propagation
- Database access metrics. Detect slow database access statements(including SQL statements)
- Message Queue performance and consuming latency monitoring
- Browser performance monitoring
- Infrastructure(VM, network, disk etc.) monitoring
- Collaboration across metrics, traces, and logs
SkyWalking supports to collect telemetry (metrics, traces, and logs) data from multiple sources and multiple formats, including
- Java, .NET Core, NodeJS, PHP, and Python auto-instrument agents.
- Go and C++ SDKs.
- LUA agent especially for Nginx, OpenResty and Apache APISIX.
- Browser agent.
- Service Mesh Observability. Control panel and data panel.
- Metrics system, including Prometheus, OpenTelemetry, Spring Sleuth(Micrometer), Zabbix.
- Zipkin v1/v2 trace.(No Analysis)
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.
