LightStep Sink

This sink sends Veneur spans to LightStep.

Configuration

See the various lightstep_* keys in example.yaml for all available configuration options.

Status

This sink is stable.

Capabilities

Spans

Enabled if lightstep_access_token is set to non-empty value.

The following rules manage how SSF spans and tags are mapped to LightStep spans:

  • The SSF indicator field is converted a tag.
  • The SSF service field is mapped to LightStep's component field.

Collector Distribution

Veneur can create lightstep_num_clients number of connections to LightStep collectors. Veneur will then distribute spans to each of these connections. This is useful if you don't have a appropriate load-balancer for balancing gRPC connections. You can also set the lightstep_reconnect_period to change how often each of these connections reconnect. Using these together can help facilitate an even distribution of spans across collectors.
