Hello community, did someone managed to run an otel collector on render.com ?
I have a collector running as a free web service on render but requests to the service causes timeouts.
From the render logs, the service is healthy and exposed by the port 4318.
That helped a lot John, I probably missed that a public service will be exposed always on the port 443, also the log message mentioning the auto detection of 4318 confused me.
I think that was the only problem, but I’m finishing my tests, thank you.
We can close this topic. As mentioned before the port that I was trying to use to reach out the otel collector was the problem. As mentioned by John my application should send metrics to the port 443.
In case someone use this topic as a documentation; a better approach would be having the service deployed as a private one on Render, or at least enable the otel collector to work with an authorization layer, there are different extensions in that direction:
