The LightStep distributed tracing library for Ruby.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install lightstep
require 'lightstep' # Initialize the singleton tracer LightStep.configure(component_name: 'lightstep/ruby/example', access_token: 'your_access_token') # Create a basic span and attach a log to the span span = LightStep.start_span('my_span') span.log(event: 'hello world', count: 42) # Create a child span (and add some artificial delays to illustrate the timing) sleep(0.1) child = LightStep.start_span('my_child', child_of: span.span_context) sleep(0.2) child.finish sleep(0.1) span.finish
The LightStep Tracer is threadsafe. For increased performance, you can add the
concurrent-ruby-ext gem to your Gemfile. This will enable C extensions for
The LightStep Tracer is also Fork-safe. When forking, the child process will not inherit the unflushed spans of the parent, so they will only be flushed once.
