Hi All, I am unable to start app which has sleuth + zipkin and IBM MQ(jms)
Any work around to make zipkin work for tracing spring and MQ communication
Mayank Srivastava
Hi Folks. I am trying to troubleshoot problems connecting our zipkin-traced (via kamon-zipkin) application (deployed on GKE) send span data to zipkin-gcp (within the same GKE cluster) on Google cloud inorder to send them over to Cloud Trace. I am experiencing problems to get the pod to even get past health check successfully. When looking up the health on \health endpoint all I see is
 "StackdriverStorage{<<GCP-PROJECT>>}" : {
        "status" : "DOWN",
        "details" : {
          "error" : "com.linecorp.armeria.common.grpc.protocol.ArmeriaStatusException: The caller does not have permission"
Hello, does anyone know why the HttpClientInstrumentation for ASP.NET doesn't record any error description even if RecordException is set to true? The error tag is added to the span automatically in case of a BadRequest("error message"), but the error message is missing inside the span and therefore not displaying in Zipkin UI.
Hi everyone, I would like to build using Zipkin V2.23.16 in IDEA. But who can help me with the following problem? Description: Missing zipkin2.proto3

Hi all,
here is my zipkin config for elasticsearch use for kubernetes environment.


        - name: STORAGE_TYPE
          value: elasticsearch
        - name: ES_HOSTS
          value: http://<host>:9200
        - name: ES_INDEX
          value: zipkin.uat

when i use storage type as in memory ot worked and can see traces and dependency tree. with above config im unable to see traces or dependency tree and gives following error

at zipkin2.elasticsearch.internal.client.HttpCall.lambda$parseResponse$4(HttpCall.java:265) ~[zipkin-storage-elasticsearch-2.23.16.jar:?]

any idea what i'm missing ?

when the elasticsearch' container_name has a underline,like 'elastictsearch_test', zipkin compose file environment -e ES_HOSTS=http://elasticsearch_test:9200, zipkin will WARN: InitialEndpointSupplier : Skipping invalid ES host http://elasticsearch_test:19070, then ES connection refused.

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!

Hello Team,

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 All,
I am trying to understand what is meant by Depth in the tracing
Can someone help me pls
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

what i understood the zipkins tracing functionality is based on api invokes.

Hi, new user looking to install zipkin into a kubernetes cluster to run traces on an application running in the same kube cluster. Is it okay to use this docker image:
openzipkin/zipkin: The core server image that hosts the Zipkin UI, Api and Collector features.
and a pod with mysql and persistent storage to run this application?

Hi! I'm very new to Zipkin and Golang here. I have running microservices that connects to each other using gRPC and I'm having difficulties in implementing the propagation to connect trace ID between services. Does anyone have a working example repository that I can take a look?

Hello, i'm trying to configure zipkin with Nodejs
i'm using appmetrics_zipking https://www.npmjs.com/package/appmetrics-zipkin
every thing is working fine locally,
when i try to connect to remote server which have zipkin installed on it the problem occurs
"Error sending Zipkin data FetchError: request to http://https://zipkin.sandbox.garment.link/:9411/api/v1/spans failed, reason: getaddrinfo EAI_AGAIN https"

Hi All. I am trying to integrate ES with zipkin. I found the variables which need to be set. In my case I have zipkin running on k8s. I can see the es_host settings in the replication controller, but no logging is coming into ES. How can I troubleshoot this from the zipkin pod itself? Connection is possible and tested. Can i start zipkin from shell in the pod to supply the ES config to test and if so, how and where? I am not able to find any running java process which is showing anything related to zipkin.jar. Do I need to kill any exisiting process first in order to start zipkin with ES config?

Hi Everyone, I am currently working on my thesis that uses zipkin as the distributed tracing solution. In order to do the testing on the solution that I have created, I am currently thinking to manually instrument GCP's microservice demo (https://github.com/GoogleCloudPlatform/microservices-demo) using Zipkin. But I've just read the code and found that the demo uses 10 different tech stack to build the microservices and I think that it would be a hassle to instrument the services one by one. Does anyone know a sample microservices demo app that has already been instrumented with Zipkin. A sample demo of minimum 10 microservices is enough for my testing purposes. Thank you everyone.

Hello everyone! I have a question about zipkin-dependencies - it looks like it's still using log4j in vulnerable version 1.2.17, is there any plans to bump it to 2.17.2? Or is there any official info about impact analys?

Hello folks! I want to know the correct way to use Zipkin, where frontend is a React SPA (to run w/o node in prod), backend is written in JAVA, communication through REST APIs. Should the frontend worry about injecting any information in the headers in the first place? APIs are supposed be exposed externally (w/o frontend), for API integration.

Hi All , how can i do the basic auth for zipkin? the #782 solution doesn't work
Hi All, beginner here. Very basic question but I couldn't find the answer and is getting confused. I understand the tracers/instrumentation that ZIPKIN team supports, https://zipkin.io/pages/tracers_instrumentation. What is the relationship between these instrumentation library and Opentelemetry??? does ZIPKIN library adheres to Opentelemetry standard??? or we can use Opentelemetry library to collect the tracing data instead of ZIPKIN library then connect to ZIPKIN??? Thanks in advance
Jonatan Ivanov
Is there a distribution of zipkin-instrumentation-fetch that can be used directly from the browser without a package manager?
e.g.: <script src=“..."></script> and that’s all, no node, no npm, just one .html and one .js file.

hello, everyone ,who knows why the span numbers are different?

Hello everyone, I am looking to customize the span with Zipkin /traces. Api returns the ip and port in payload. We would like to suppress this info as it is recognized as security vulnerability.

I don't want localEndpoint and remoteEndpoint in my response
or I shud be able to mask this if not remove

Good day to you,

I'm running zipkin for the first time. I have only windows and cannot use docker in my situation. I figured the following script should work for me

set STORAGE_TYPE=elasticsearch
java -jar .\zipkin-server-2.23.16-exec.jar

you can see in the picture the result ...

the recommended action:

Consider defining a bean of type 'zipkin2.storage.StorageComponent' in your configuration.

It would be very wonderful if you could give me an advice what I have to do now... I have no idea

many thanks!

Hi, I am using Event driven Architecture like lot of messages are going between multiple services, can we use Zipkin for these message tracing ? if Yes could you please provide me any documents or link for the same.

Hi, can we customised the traceID and Span ID, like our own implementation for these ID in Spring cloud sleuth
