At its core, Splunk Observability Cloud uses the OpenTelemetry observability framework. OpenTelemetry offers vendor-agnostic APIs and software development kits (SDKs) for collecting telemetry data from cloud-native applications and their supporting infrastructure, and the OpenTelemetry Collector can aggregate and send this data to a commercial analysis system like Splunk or open-source ones like Prometheus. The collector uses pipelines to receive, process, and export metric and trace data with components known as receivers, processors, and exporters.
