This library provides an ExporterInterface for exporting Trace data to a Zipkin instance.

CircleCI Packagist PHP-Version

Installation & basic usage

  1. Install the opencensus/opencensus-exporter-zipkin package using composer:

    $ composer require opencensus/opencensus-exporter-zipkin:~0.1
  2. Initialize a tracer for your application:

    use OpenCensus\Trace\Tracer;
    use OpenCensus\Trace\Exporter\ZipkinExporter;
    
    Tracer::start(new ZipkinExporter('my-service-name'));

Customization

Configuring the Zipkin endpoint

You may provide an optional initialization parameter for the Zipkin endpoint. This value should be a full URL to the v2 spans endpoint.

$exporter = new ZipkinExporter('my-service-name', 'http://example.com:9411/api/v2/spans');

Configuring the local IPv4 or IPv6 address

Zipkin allows you to optionally specify the host IP address of the server that is handling the traced requests.

For IPv4:

// gethostbyname may make a DNS query, so you may want to cache this
$ipv4 = gethostbyname(gethostname());
$exporter->setLocalIpv4($ipv4);

Similarly, you may set the local IPv6 address if you can obtain it:

$exporter->setLocalIpv6($ipv6);
