Architected for performance

Collect, process, and send data for small to planet-scale workloads using deployment and configuration options that best fit your workload.

Chronosphere Collector

The Chronosphere Collector provides an open source-compatible and flexible way to ingest metrics and traces from your environment regardless of scale.

Each Chronosphere Collector is deployed per node, removing the need to operate large Prometheus instances. With Chronosphere’s open source data collection software, your data collection is simpler and massively scalable.

Scraping metric endpoints is the preferred method of ingesting metrics to the Collector, but you can also ingest the following metric formats: DogStatsD, StatsD, Carbon, Prometheus and OpenMetrics, Pushgateway, SignalFx, and Wavefront.



OpenTelemetry Collector

With support for the OpenTelemetry Collector, Chronosphere simplifies the ingestion of metrics and traces from various sources. This integration allows for a more flexible and straightforward data collection process, aiding in a quicker, more thorough analysis.

Customers can benefit from a unified format for both metrics and traces, which not only streamlines data collection but also reduces configuration overhead. The OpenTelemetry Collector support is a practical extension for those looking to consolidate their observability data in a more efficient and organized manner.
