Hi Danish, Which part of signoz do you want to disable? The frontend or whole system? Also why do you want to disable?

Can I add dependency of opentelemetry jar in microservices's docker files and how to enable or disable promethues for all spring microservices . My question is do I need to add dependency in pom.xml . Is prometheus is included in Signoz? I have seen opentelemetry dependencies in maven repository but they all are in alpha mode. Is it safe to use ? Can I use use signoz without adding opentelemetry jar?

You can use other formats like opentracing which is there in tools like Jaeger and Zipkin. For metrics you can use prometheus exporters and otel-collector to make SigNoz ingest metrics
Opentelemetry libs have been used in prod by many companies across the globe
I don't know how do you plan to use just the dependencies, but might be difficult to make it work without any external help. Opentelemetry libs must have been made for a reason
Is prometheus is included in Signoz?
Yes, to query metrics data. We support promql and their engines to get metrics data. Soon we will be moving away from prometheus altogether and you won't need to import prometheus package
