Amazon Managed Grafana now supports Trace Analytics with the OpenSearch Grafana data source plugin, in addition to the existing support for Log Analytics. Amazon Managed Grafana is a fully managed service for Grafana, a popular open-source analytics platform that enables you to query, visualize, and alert on your metrics, logs, and traces. OpenSearch is an open-source search and analytics engine for use cases such as log analytics, observability, real-time application monitoring, and clickstream analysis that is also offered as a fully managed Amazon OpenSearch Service

With this release, you can analyze your logs and trace data stored in OpenSearch, alongside metrics from your other data sources, in a single view in Amazon Managed Grafana, thus simplifying the correlation and analysis of these data points. The newly added trace views show the timeline of traces and allow you to drill down into spans, helping you to isolate the source of performance problems and diagnose their root cause directly from your Amazon Managed Grafana workspace.

OpenSearch Trace Analytics is supported on all Amazon Managed Grafana workspaces with Grafana version 9.4 or higher across all AWS regions where Amazon Managed Grafana is generally available. For more information about this feature, please see the documentation. To learn more about Amazon Managed Grafana, visit the product page and pricing page.
