MySQL provides connectivity for client applications developed in .NET compatible programming languages with MySQL Connector/NET through a series of packages.

MySql.Data.OpenTelemetry activates telemetry capabilities when the target MySQL server is configured to support telemetry. It is compatible with .NET 6.0+ and must be used alongside the MySql.Data package. An OpenTelemetry SDK is required.

How to use

    //create the tracer provider and add Connector/NET as a source from telemetry data.
    using var tracerProvider = Sdk.CreateTracerProviderBuilder()
            .ConfigureResource(resource => resource.AddService("connector-net"))

    //use MySql.Data as usual, the internal implementation of OpenTelemetry is now enabled.
    MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection myConnection;
    string myConnectionString;
    //set the correct values for your server, user, password and database name
    myConnectionString = "server=;uid=root;pwd=12345;database=test";

      myConnection = new MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection(myConnectionString);
      //open a connection

      // create a MySQL command and set the SQL statement with parameters
      MySqlCommand myCommand = new MySqlCommand();
      myCommand.Connection = myConnection;
      myCommand.CommandText = @"SELECT * FROM clients WHERE client_id = @clientId;";
      myCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@clientId", clientId);

      // execute the command and read the results
      using var myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader()
        while (myReader.Read())
          var id = myReader.GetInt32("client_id");
          var name = myReader.GetString("client_name");
          // ...
    catch (MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException ex)
