Apica Ascent ingests traces and logs from OpenTelemetry collector and Jaeger agent. It implements scalable streaming and indexing of spans, traces and logs directly to any object storage. Users can search and visualize spans, traces, and logs using a simple intuitive built-in UI. Our UI borrows several key aspects from the Jaeger UI project while integrating it seamlessly with Apica Ascent's infinitely scalable InstaStore backend built on top of object storage.
In the Apica Ascent UI, navigate to Traces under Explore in the navigational menu.
