Metrics exporters are responsible for passing the recorded tracing data to a corresponding storage.
inspectIT Ocelot currently supports the following OpenCensus trace exporters:
The ZipKin exporter exports Traces in ZipKin v2 format to a ZipKin server or other compatible servers.
It can be enabled and disabled via the
inspectit.exporters.tracing.zipkin.enabled property. By default, the ZipKin exporter is enabled. It however does not have an URL configured. The exporter will start up as soon as you define the
For example, when adding the following property to your
-javaagent options, traces will be sent to a zipkin server running on your localhost with the default port:
When sending spans, ZipKin expects you to give a name of the service where the spans have been recorded. This name can be set using the
inspectit.exporters.tracing.zipkin.service-name property. This property defaults to
The Jaeger exports works exactly the same way as the ZipKin Exporter. The corresponding properties are the following:
inspectit.exporters.tracing.jaeger.enabled: enables / disables the Jaeger exporter
inspectit.exporters.tracing.jaeger.url: defines the URL where the spans will be pushed
inspectit.exporters.tracing.jaeger.service-name: defines the service name under which the spans will be published
By default, the Jaeger exporter is enabled but has no URL configured.
The service name defaults to
To make inspectIT Ocelot push the spans to a Jaeger server running on the same machine as the agent, the following JVM property can be used:
OpenCensus Agent Trace Exporter
Spans can be additionally exported to the OpenCensus Agent.
When enabled, all Spans are send via gRCP to the OpenCensus Agent. By default, the exporter is enabled, but the agent address is set to
|If true, the agent will try to start the OpenCensus Agent Trace exporter.
|Address of the open-census agent (e.g. localhost:1234).
|If true, SSL is disabled.
|The service-name which will be used to publish the spans.
|The time at which the exporter tries to reconnect to the OpenCensus agent.
