Whether you’re running a monolith, microservices, or something in between–the best observability comes from instrumenting your code.
New to instrumenting code? Want to learn about structured events? Read more about instrumentation.
The Honeycomb Beeline for Go is the most direct path to instrumenting your code. Beelines understand a wide range of standard packages in various ecosystems, and instrument them to send useful events to Honeycomb.
It’s easy to start with a Beeline, which will create traces automatically, and then later, optionally add custom traces and context to events to capture your unique needs.
The Beeline for Go provides optional support for Gorilla, Goji, net/http, sqlx, and more.
OpenTelemetry is a vendor-neutral instrumentation framework with a large community of contributors. Read our guide to get started using OpenTelemetry for Go.
Need help choosing between the Beeline SDK and OpenTelemetry for instrumenting your code? Read our guide: Beelines and OpenTelemetry.
If you have existing instrumentation with OpenTelemetry, Zipkin, or Jaeger, use our OpenTelemetry support to send your data to Honeycomb.
Libhoney is a low-level library for sending structured events to Honeycomb’s API. The Go Beeline package uses Libhoney under the hood. View setup and usage instructions for Libhoney for Go.
All Honeycomb integrations are open source, Apache 2.0 licensed, and can be found on GitHub.
