How Grafana and Tempo 2.0 make it easier to explore distributed traces

Tempo 2.0, complete with the brand new TraceQL query language, is here! In this session, learn how to get the most out of the open source distributed tracing project’s latest major release.

First, Software Engineer Zach Leslie will share what his team has learned running Grafana Tempo at massive scale to power Grafana Cloud Traces – and how you can turn those learnings into best practices for operators.

Then Tempo maintainer Joe Elliott will share his tips and tricks for using TraceQL to find and visualize “needle in the haystack” traces, and explain how Tempo 2.0 leverages Apache Parquet and massive parallel processing to answer queries extremely quickly. Curious listeners will come away with foundational knowledge that will help them write more efficient TraceQL queries.
