// sample 1 in every N spans, see NewTracerWithOptions. Spans are written to
// the underlying collector when Finish() is called on the span. It is
// possible to buffer and write span on a time interval using appdash.ChunkedCollector.
// For example:
// collector := appdash.NewLocalCollector(myAppdashStore)
// chunkedCollector := appdash.NewChunkedCollector(collector)
// tracer := NewTracer(chunkedCollector)

// be needed, for example:
// collector := appdash.NewRemoteCollector("localhost:8700")
// tracer := NewTracer(collector)
// will record all spans to a collector server on localhost:8700.
