OpenObserve (O2 for short)

OpenObserve is a cloud native observability platform built specifically for logs, metrics, traces, analytics, RUM (Real User Monitoring - Performance, Errors, Session Replay) designed to work at petabyte scale.

It is very simple and easy to operate as opposed to Elasticsearch which requires a couple dozen knobs to understand and tune which you can get up and running in under 2 minutes.

It is a drop-in replacement for Elasticsearch if you are just ingesting data using APIs and searching using kibana (Kibana is not supported nor required with OpenObserve. OpenObserve provides its own UI which does not require separate installation unlike kibana).

You can reduce your log storage costs by ~140x compared to Elasticsearch by using OpenObserve. Below are the results when we pushed logs from our production kubernetes cluster to Elasticsearch and OpenObserve using fluentbit. OpenObserve stored data in Amazon s3 and Elasticsearch stored data on Amazon EBS volumes.

OpenObserve Vs ElasticSearch

Introduction video


Some of the features are:

  1. Logs, Metrics, Traces
  2. OpenTelemetry support for logs, metrics traces (OTLP)
  3. RUM (Real user Monitoring) - Performance, Errors, Session Replay
  4. Alerts, Dashboards (14 different chart types (time series, bar, geo maps, heatmap, scatter, table, pie, etc.)
  5. Ingest and Query functions to aid advanced capabilities like enrichment, redaction, log reduction, compliance, etc. e.g. you can use ingest functions to redact sensitive data like email IDs, AWS keys, etc. from logs before the get stored in logs.
  6. Advanced Embedded GUI
  7. SQL for Logs and Traces. SQL and PromQL for metrics. No need to learn yet another query language.
  8. Single binary for installation & running. Binaries available under releases for multiple platforms.
  9. Storage in local Disk, s3, MinIO, GCS, Azure Blob Storage
  10. High availability and clustering
  11. Drop in replacement for elasticsearch
  12. Dynamic Schema
  13. Out of the box authentication
  14. Vastly easier to operate
  15. Seamless upgrades
  16. UI in 11 supported languages (English, Turkish, German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Dutch)
