How to create multiple spans and identify as 1 trace in jaeger?


Hello all,

I'm trying to implement multiple spans and those spans should be identified as 1 trace in jaeger.

(As shown in this video:

at 24:12 timing he shows the same concept.)

I'm using java to implement.

Can someone provide some ideas, tips and tricks, which could be a great help.

Thanks in Advance!

Kind Regards,

    The key is to have something tagged in the telemetry that is unique to each event. You can see from the video that Ed has a messaging.solace_user_properties.order_id that he uses to track events.

    We are currently working on context propagation for Solace Distributed Tracing for the broker and its APIs which will allow the same trace_id to be passed along with the event. It will make it easier to do this.

    Hi @rtomkins,

    Thank you for your reply. Can you please provide me with detailed information about tags (such as: messaging.solace_user_properties.order_id) or any other user properties which can be used to set tags.

    And also, can you please update me regarding context propagation for Solace Distributed Tracing.

    Thanks in Advance :)

    Best Regards,
