Observing your GraphQL API is fundamental to understand how the system is performing. Grafbase provides visibility by collecting and exporting a curated set of OpenTelemetry traces and metrics, enabling you to detect anomalies, diagnose issues, and optimize performance with precision.

Tracing captures the journey of a request when handled by our Gateway, providing detailed information about each stage of execution.

Metrics quantify the performance and healthiness of your requests, delivering aggregated data on aspects like throughput, latency, and error rates.
