Jaeger Project Journey Report: A 917% increase in companies contributing code

Project Post

Today we are excited to release our next project journey report for Jaeger. This is the sixth such report we have compiled for one of our graduated projects. It assesses the state of the Jaeger project and how CNCF has impacted its progress and growth.

Jaeger is an open source, end-to-end distributed tracing platform built to help companies of all sizes monitor and troubleshoot their cloud native architectures. Contributors to Jaeger include many of the world’s largest tech companies, such as Uber, Red Hat, Ryanair, IBM, and Ticketmaster as well as fast-growing mid-size companies like Cloudbees. 

The report highlights the growth of Jaeger since the project joined CNCF on September 13, 2017. Between then and now:

  • The total number of companies contributing code has increased by 917% from 29 to 295. 
  • Jaeger has enjoyed a 603% expansion of individual contributors adding 1,682.
  • the number of authors and companies committing documentation to Jaeger has grown by 496% and 415%, respectively. 

Since joining CNCF Jaeger has added:

  • 1,753 contributors
  • 4,310 code commits
  • 3.2K pull requests
  • 39.3K contributions
  • 302 contributing companies

Next month, Jaeger will celebrate its fifth birthday. It has been fantastic to be a part of the project’s journey for three of those years, and we can’t wait to see the milestones to come!
