OpenTelemetry vs StatsD: What are the differences?
Developers describe OpenTelemetry as "A single set of APIs, libraries, agents, and collector services to capture distributed traces and metrics from your application". It provides a single set of APIs, libraries, agents, and collector services to capture distributed traces and metrics from your application. You can analyze them using Prometheus, Jaeger, and other observability tools. On the other hand, StatsD is detailed as "Simple daemon for easy stats aggregation". It is a network daemon that runs on the Node.js platform and listens for statistics, like counters and timers, sent over UDP or TCP and sends aggregates to one or more pluggable backend services (e.g., Graphite).
OpenTelemetry and StatsD can be categorized as "Monitoring" tools.
StatsD is an open source tool with 15.3K GitHub stars and 1.92K GitHub forks. Here's a link to StatsD's open source repository on GitHub.
