I have a quick questions about application telemetry. We have a good handful of services that we want to have APM telemetry for in SigNoz. I see two ways of doing this (we happen to have NestJS apps): 1. https://signoz.io/docs/tutorial/opentelemetry-operator-usage/#opentelemetry-auto-instrumentation-injection 2. https://signoz.io/docs/instrumentation/nestjs/ Is there a difference between these two? It would be nice not to have to add libraries and code to our apps and I would like to use the auto-instrumentation method if they are equivalent.
Most of our services interact with MongoDB, Redis, and some ClickHouse

They are mostly equivalent. The latter involves some manual coding from your side.

Would the later allow me to send custom metrics I could chart in a SigNoz dashboard?

Yes
