Get Notified: Introduction to Tracing Workshop

This is the workshop for you if you are familiar with logs and metrics in Grafana and have basic Linux, developer, and/or SRE skills, including at least one modern computer language.

Grafana Tempo is an open-source, easy-to-use, and high-scale distributed tracing backend. Grafana has a built-in Tempo data source so users can query Tempo and visualize traces directly in their Grafana dashboards, providing a comprehensive observability approach that unifies metrics, logs and traces in one stack.

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll get an introduction to traces and learn directly from Grafana Labs technical experts as they showcase how to work with traces in Grafana and instrument code to generate them.


  • Introduction to tracing and composition of a trace
  • Tips for working with and instrument traces
  • Guide to using Grafana Cloud, Grafana Enterprise Traces, and Grafana Agent
  • Step-by-step guide to visualizing traces with Grafana dashboards
  • Live Q&A with Grafana Labs tracing experts
* Workshops are not recorded for on-demand consumption post-event. Live attendance and participation in breakout sessions are required.
