I have already elastic apm and rum setup for a large environment which we are very confortable. Some colleagues are asking about enabling jaeger Jaeger integration | APM Server Reference [7.11] | Elastic for some services that they have already instrumented with Jaeger.
I've been reading and trying to understand how these two worlds fix together, if there are benefits of one over the other or they complement each other, I haven't work before with Jaeger so have no expertise on it.
Hoping anyone can point me in the right direction or give answer.
- Is there any benefit of using jaeger instead of apm agent?
- can/should be enabled together or choose between one or the other?
- are jaeger traces integrated into elastic so kibana dashboards continue working in APM view?
Thanks in advance!
