Hi Guys, I need help in setting up Zipkin with Casandra or MySQL. So far I have tested with Zipkin docker. I could not find any proper documentation on setting up Zipkin with Casandra or MySQL. I have no Java knowledge to build Jar from the source. Is there any readily available Jar which can work with Casadra using some YML config file?
Hello, are there any instrumentation libraries availble for tracing Hazelcast and Redis

Is it intentional that the Spring Boot actuator endpoint exposes endpoints like /heapdump ? It allows any user to obtain a heapdump by calling "actuator/heapdump". The "env" endpoint is also exposed which might expose credentials.

hello trying to use spring boot sleuth which use zipkin to send to google cloud trace but I get a timeout because I'm premise, is there a way to see where it tries to connect ? is it something I can change ? thanks

Hi all, we are trying to use sleuth to send logs to zipkin. So I have added below dependencies implementation "org.springframework.cloud:spring-cloud-starter-zipkin" implementation "org.springframework.cloud:spring-cloud-starter-sleuth" implementation "org.springframework.cloud:spring-cloud-sleuth-zipkin"

And added below props in logback.xml
[%X{traceId} %X{spanId} %X{X-Span-Export}]

With the above changes in our 2 services, we were expecting zipkin will have some logs, but nothing appeared. So then we tried to add below properties in application.properties
spring.zipkin.base-url=http://localhost:9411 spring.zipkin.enabled=true spring.zipkin.service.name=rcp-command spring.sleuth.enabled=true spring.sleuth.integration.enabled=true spring.sleuth.sampler.rate=100 spring.sleuth.sampler.probability=1.0 spring.sleuth.sampler.percentage=1.0 spring.zipkin.sender.type=web

And still dont see logs / service name in zipkin.
Can you see what am I doing wrong here. Out apps have cloud-stream dependencies as well. And also noted that in logs I am getting X-span-export coming as false. For ex: [3e205e41db60212f 77a405a53d62c9fa false]

Hi Does Zipkin support link tarcking to RabbitMQ if I'm use NetCore

Hi all, I'd like to ask about zipkin with grafana dashboard.
I installed zipkin with grafana using official docker-compose (but storage is elasticsearch. because when I use mysql, an access error happens. es doesn't happen)

By the way, I am using zipkin for collecting graphQL execution time with nodejs application. (using opentelemetry library such as HttpInstrumentation, ExpressInstrumentation and GraphQLInstrumentation)
And I'd like to show which graphQL queries are slow on some graphical chart.

I try to use prometheus metrics explorers below with the grafana dashboard.


But it looks like they can't filter any metrics tags on grafana dashboard ... (because in terms of above controller, we can only use 'instance, job, transport' labels)

Could we do that by prometheus metrics explorers? Or, for filtering by metrics, should we use data storage (such as elastic search, mysql, etc) on grafana dashboard?
Thank you so much.

Hi all, sorry for asking again.
I changed my strategy. Actually, zipkin + Grafana dashboard is not suitable for my requirements.
I switched to using elasticsearch storage with zipkin and I'd like to show Kibana Visualize(dashboard) for showing tracing information.

By the way, how is "tags" index enabled for the Visualize field?
As far as I know, we have two approaches. 1: query indexing 2: template index.
However, we can filter by tags ( https://github.com/openzipkin/zipkin/tree/master/zipkin-storage/elasticsearch#query-indexing ) but '_q' doesn't appear in the field.

And it looks like we can use the template index approach. (https://github.com/openzipkin/zipkin-support/issues/46#issuecomment-742872992)
I tried to fetch it. But I don't get any template index.

$ curl -s 'localhost:9200/_index_template'

My environment:
official docker compose yaml of zipkin
official docker compose yaml of elasticsearch7 (openzipkin/zipkin-elasticsearch7) (version 7.9.3)
oss Kibana image (docker.elastic.co/kibana/kibana-oss:7.9.3) (version 7.9.3)

Hi. I’ve been working on an open source project called Kronicle that includes an integration with Zipkin. Here’s some info in case any is interested.

It combines dependency data from Zipkin with dependencies defined in YAML to render an interactive architecture diagram with filters: https://demo.kronicle.tech/all-components/dependencies

It uses Zipkin traces to render “call graphs”: https://demo.kronicle.tech/components/kronicle-service/call-graphs

It uses Zipkin traces to calculate response times: https://demo.kronicle.tech/components/kronicle-service/response-times

Kronicle uses Zipkin’s Get Traces API endpoint rather than Zipkin’s Get Dependencies API endpoint, as the data from the Get Traces endpoint is much richer.

There’s more info available on https://kronicle.tech

Context is single developer local desktop using containers. Right now we have OpenTelemetry data streaming to zipkin. Following the Zipkin quickstart we are here:

As best we can tell this might be (but we really aren't sure):
We appreciate any hints or tips.

hi, I have springboot application which was migrated from older spring web, so application-context.xml is still there
after adding dependencies and relevant properties, even though I can see spanId / traceId in logs, I dont see anything in zipkin. SHould I configure reporter beans manually ?
Normal spring boot applications are working fine except this migrated legacy application
any suggestions ?

This does not seem to be a Zipkin question, you can ask SLeuth-related questions here: https://gitter.im/spring-cloud/spring-cloud-sleuth
If you want to send data to ZIpkin you need to add spring-cloud-sleuth-zipkin, check the docs for a full example: https://docs.spring.io/spring-cloud-sleuth/docs/current/reference/htmlsingle/#how-to-set-up-sleuth-with-brave-zipkin-http

What’s up?
Hello community I am having issues accessing the UI for a deployed zipkin on kubernetes through an ingress. For some reason, whenever I try to access the UI (from the path examplehostname/zipkin) I am receiving redirect errors (ERR_TO_MANY_REDIRECTS shown by browser). However, all of the other endpoints appear to be working fine and return the correct information when I curl them (examplehostname/zipkin/info, examplehostname/zipkin/health, etc...) and I have applications which can successfully send tracing data to examplehostname/zipkin/api/v2/spans. The UI is just inaccessible, was wondering if anyone can help?

One possible reason of it happening is increase in load. But this error should settle when the load decrease during non peak hours. On the other hand, it's a continuous error and impacting our ingestion into cassandra

Hi, I am unable to see all the trace in zipkin. I am using spring-boot-dependencies 2.2.5.RELEASE. I tried with setting sampler.probability and sampler.percentage to 1.0 and also tried with adding the AlwaysSampler() bean. all did not work. Anyone know why?
