The container does not start, it stays in "starting" mode in portainer, then it stops. are the env-var ES_HOSTS and ES_INDEX supported by default in the image?

Zipkin 2.23.15 is out including log4j 2.17.

@jcchavezs thanks man, sorry for my bad english, but exist an official post or whatever with this information ?
Hello all. In my tests (v2.23.15), using the ES_INDEX_SHARDS env only takes effect when using ES_INDEX along with it. Only ES_INDEX_SHARDS does not change the number of shards. Is it meant to be like this?

I'm trying to use zipkin zipkin-cassandra with podman-compose on CentOS 8. The docker-compose-dependencies.yml wants to setup a cron job, but maybe it assumes we've somehow got cron in our container already. Is there an easy way to "fix" this podman-compose wise? Error we get: podman start -a dependencies

Answering my own question: For podman-compose, it's handling of entrypoint was lacking in CentOS 8 (though maybe fixed in a future version). For now I changed the entrypoint in docker-compose-dependencies.yml to: entrypoint: [ 'crond', '-f' ]

Using zipkin cassandra docker-compose with the Centos 8 podman fix, the batch "dependencies", while present and running, doesn't seem to actually do anything. Hints on troubleshooting this?

So, while I'm using the bundled java from elasticsearch for it and zipkin, I had to run the zipkin dependency jar using 8. Sigh.

Hi All,

I’m wondering if anyone has set up distributed tracing using Zipkin in AWS where spans from different AWS accounts running their own services are collected and exported to a common AWS ElasticSearch cluster (or another AWS storage), so that we can view the entire traces across all the different services. And in terms of the architecture design, is it recommended to have one collector for all services, or each service having their own collector running as sidecar container/process?

hi all, I am trying to solve an issue with a zipkin server 2.23.16 deployed on EKS: traces coming from my local spring boot 2.6.2 instance arrive, traces I post from a pod with curl from the same namespace arrive but traces from the same spring boot application deployed on EKS do not arrive... I wonder what I should put in debug (and how) to see what's happening. I have deployed the official docker image of zipkin-server with no customization, only env variables for the cassandra storage info. Note: I had to specify zipkin.sender.type: web for the local application to post successfully the spans though (this change is on EKS too for my tests but to no avail).

Hi All,
I'm trying to create only one trace for one request, (in client side, sending the request to server side, and then make another calls)
I got all the calls in the same trace, but not in the correct order, as you can see in the photo, (validate API post request till publish request, it's need to be under run command)

Hi, i'm using zipkin (2.23.2) and elasticsearch (7.16) as storage. But there is some issue with the tag query in the zipkin ui. The traces are not coming if I'm giving query for tags that I added, for eg. "tagQuery=event=Configure", but it'll come for the default tags, for eg. "tagQuery=channel=stateChangeReqReceiver". I am able to search with elasticsearch query. I also tried zipkin-dependencies. tagquery is really needed for our project. Are there any flag settings which should be enabled?

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to add tracing in an asynchronous library using Brave.
I'd like to have, for instance, a thread that starts a trace, and submit various tasks in a ForkJoinPool. When these tasks are executed, they would need to see their parent trace.
I'm having trouble the proper way to do this. For now, I'm passing the TraceContext of the parent to its children.
Could you point me towards the "official" way to handle this ?
Thanks in advance!

Hi everyone,
I am trying to understand how to send spans with Zipkin in JSX to do some tracing. Below is what I am trying to achieve, it's just pseudocode but I can't really find documentation on how to do it.

What I am trying to achieve are:

  • Measure page load time (domContentLoaded - pageLoadStart)
  • generate span and send event to Zipkin server on domContentLoaded event

let tracer = new Tracer(...params)
let span = new Span(...)
span.start('page load start')

document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', (event) => {
span.end('page load end')

@jcchavezs can you pls provide me the telegraf conf for Zipkin.

Hi. i now have a confusing problem that when i use elasticsearch.yml to start up the zipkin 。there is no service dependencies data generated.I checked all that the dependency cron service is up.How can i check is there any mistake and solve it ?
the docker-compose.yml configed is:
image: openzipkin/zipkin-dependencies
container_name: dependencies
entrypoint: crond -f
   # Uncomment to see dependency processing logs
  # Uncomment to adjust memory used by the dependencies job
  # - JAVA_OPTS=-verbose:gc -Xms1G -Xmx1G
  - STORAGE_TYPE=elasticsearch
  - ES_HOSTS=elasticsearch:9200
  - storage
what i understood the zipkins tracing functionality is based on api invokes.
