  • datadogconnector: Add a new option to the Datadog connector to enable container tags on stats Payloads. (#31642)
    This change adds a new option to the Datadog connector to enable container tags on stats Payloads. This is useful for users who want to use container tags as second primary tag for Datadog APM.

  • dockerstatsreceiver: add metrics for online CPU count and memory fails count (#31366)

  • fileexporter: Adopt the encoding extension with the file exporter. (#31774)

  • pkg/ottl: Add ParseXML function for parsing XML from a target string. (#31133)

  • spanmetricsconnector: Add metrics_expiration option to enable expiration of metrics if spans are not received within a certain time frame. (#30559)
    The feature can be configured by specifiying the desired duration in the metrics_expiration option. By default, the expiration is disabled (set to 0).

  • splunkentreceiver: Updated the config.go and propogated these changes to other receiver components. Change was necessary to differentiate different configurable endpoints. (#30254)

  • exporter/datadogexporter: Do not drop traces when payload channel is full. (#31893)

🧰 Bug fixes 🧰

  • bigipreceiver: Fix potential nil pointer usage in GetPoolMembers (#31899)

  • carbonreceiver: Do not report fatal error when closed normally (#31913)

  • datadogexporter: Fix data race in metrics exporter shutdown (#31663)

  • deltatocumulativeprocessor: timer-based expiry (#31615)
    converts expiry to 1m timer, eliminating a race condition and failing test

  • telemetrygen: Do not use WithBlock when forming grpc connections for metrics/traces in telemetrygen to avoid infinite retry after failure (#31401)

  • filestatsreceiver: Fix file.path to return the proper absolute path of the file (#31738)

  • internal/docker: Updated docker dependency and fixed zap.String incompatibility (#31087)

  • cmd/telemetrygen: Fixed key mapping for logs telemetry attributes. (#31309)

  • exporter/awskinesisexporter: Fix the capacity of records slices in the initialized batch (#20914)

  • hostmetricsreceiver: Adds the receiver.hostmetrics.normalizeProcessCPUUtilization feature gate to optionally normalize process.cpu.utilization values. (#31368)
    When enabled, the receiver.hostmetrics.normalizeProcessCPUUtilization feature gate will cause process.cpu.utilization values to be divided by the number of logical cores on the system. This is necessary to produce a value on the interval of [0-1], as the description of process.cpu.utilization the metric says.

  • transformprocessor: Change metric unit for metrics extracted with extract_count_metric() to be the default unit (1) (#31575)
    The original metric unit does not apply to extracted count metrics the same way it does to sum, min or max.
    Metrics extracted using extract_count_metric() now use the more appropriate default unit (1) instead.

  • dockerstatsreceiver: Add shutdown method to fix leaking goroutines (#30438)

  • loadbalancingexporter: Fix memory leaks on shutdown (#31050)

  • signalfxexporter: Fix memory leak in shutdown (#30864, #30438)

  • servicegraphprocessor: Fix 'failed to find dimensions for key' error from race condition in metrics cleanup. (#31701)

  • exporter/datadog: Demote noisy gohai logs to debug level (#29741)
    These logs would be present at the info level when using the official Docker images but were not useful to end-users.

  • sqlqueryreceiver: Fix memory leak on shutdown for log telemetry (#31782)

Go API Changes

🛑 Breaking changes 🛑
