Examples

Constants

const (
	HostAttribute       = "http.host"
	MethodAttribute     = "http.method"
	PathAttribute       = "http.path"
	UserAgentAttribute  = "http.user_agent"
	StatusCodeAttribute = "http.status_code"
)

Attributes recorded on the span for the requests. Only trace exporters will need them.

Variables

var (
	ClientRequestCount  = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/client/request_count", "Number of HTTP requests started", stats.UnitNone)
	ClientRequestBytes  = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/client/request_bytes", "HTTP request body size if set as ContentLength (uncompressed)", stats.UnitBytes)
	ClientResponseBytes = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/client/response_bytes", "HTTP response body size (uncompressed)", stats.UnitBytes)
	ClientLatency       = stats.Float64("opencensus.io/http/client/latency", "End-to-end latency", stats.UnitMilliseconds)
)

The following client HTTP measures are supported for use in custom views.

var (
	ServerRequestCount  = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/server/request_count", "Number of HTTP requests started", stats.UnitNone)
	ServerRequestBytes  = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/server/request_bytes", "HTTP request body size if set as ContentLength (uncompressed)", stats.UnitBytes)
	ServerResponseBytes = stats.Int64("opencensus.io/http/server/response_bytes", "HTTP response body size (uncompressed)", stats.UnitBytes)
	ServerLatency       = stats.Float64("opencensus.io/http/server/latency", "End-to-end latency", stats.UnitMilliseconds)
)

The following server HTTP measures are supported for use in custom views:

var (
	// Host is the value of the HTTP Host header.
	Host, _ = tag.NewKey("http.host")

	// StatusCode is the numeric HTTP response status code,
	// or "error" if a transport error occurred and no status code was read.
	StatusCode, _ = tag.NewKey("http.status")

	// Path is the URL path (not including query string) in the request.
	Path, _ = tag.NewKey("http.path")

	// Method is the HTTP method of the request, capitalized (GET, POST, etc.).
	Method, _ = tag.NewKey("http.method")
)

The following tags are applied to stats recorded by this package. Host, Path and Method are applied to all measures. StatusCode is not applied to ClientRequestCount or ServerRequestCount, since it is recorded before the status is known.

var (
	DefaultSizeDistribution    = view.Distribution(0, 1024, 2048, 4096, 16384, 65536, 262144, 1048576, 4194304, 16777216, 67108864, 268435456, 1073741824, 4294967296)
	DefaultLatencyDistribution = view.Distribution(0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 13, 16, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 65, 80, 100, 130, 160, 200, 250, 300, 400, 500, 650, 800, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10000, 20000, 50000, 100000)
)

Default distributions used by views in this package.

Package ochttp provides some convenience views. You need to subscribe to the views for data to actually be collected.

var DefaultClientViews = []*view.View{
	ClientRequestCountView,
	ClientRequestBytesView,
	ClientResponseBytesView,
	ClientLatencyView,
	ClientRequestCountByMethod,
	ClientResponseCountByStatusCode,
}

DefaultClientViews are the default client views provided by this package.

var DefaultServerViews = []*view.View{
	ServerRequestCountView,
	ServerRequestBytesView,
	ServerResponseBytesView,
	ServerLatencyView,
	ServerRequestCountByMethod,
	ServerResponseCountByStatusCode,
}

DefaultServerViews are the default server views provided by this package.

type Handler

type Handler struct {
	// Propagation defines how traces are propagated. If unspecified,
	// B3 propagation will be used.
	Propagation propagation.HTTPFormat

	// Handler is the handler used to handle the incoming request.
	Handler http.Handler

	// StartOptions are applied to the span started by this Handler around each
	// request.
	//
	// StartOptions.SpanKind will always be set to trace.SpanKindServer
	// for spans started by this transport.
	StartOptions trace.StartOptions

	// IsPublicEndpoint should be set to true for publicly accessible HTTP(S)
	// servers. If true, any trace metadata set on the incoming request will
	// be added as a linked trace instead of being added as a parent of the
	// current trace.
	IsPublicEndpoint bool
}

Handler is a http.Handler that is aware of the incoming request's span.

The extracted span can be accessed from the incoming request's context.

span := trace.FromContext(r.Context())

The server span will be automatically ended at the end of ServeHTTP.

Incoming propagation mechanism is determined by the given HTTP propagators.

Example

Code:

package main

import (
	"go.opencensus.io/plugin/ochttp"
	"log"
	"net/http"
)

var usersHandler http.Handler

func main() {
	// Enables OpenCensus for the default serve mux.
	// By default, B3 propagation is used.
	http.Handle("/users", usersHandler)
	log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe("localhost:8080", &ochttp.Handler{}))
}
Example (Mux)

Code:

package main

import (
	"go.opencensus.io/plugin/ochttp"
	"go.opencensus.io/plugin/ochttp/propagation/b3"
	"log"
	"net/http"
)

var usersHandler http.Handler

func main() {
	mux := http.NewServeMux()
	mux.Handle("/users", usersHandler)

	log.Fatal(http.ListenAndServe("localhost:8080", &ochttp.Handler{
		Handler:     mux,
		Propagation: &b3.HTTPFormat{},
	}))
}

func (*Handler) ServeHTTP

func (h *Handler) ServeHTTP(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request)

type Transport

type Transport struct {
	// Base may be set to wrap another http.RoundTripper that does the actual
	// requests. By default http.DefaultTransport is used.
	//
	// If base HTTP roundtripper implements CancelRequest,
	// the returned round tripper will be cancelable.
	Base http.RoundTripper

	// Propagation defines how traces are propagated. If unspecified, a default
	// (currently B3 format) will be used.
	Propagation propagation.HTTPFormat

	// StartOptions are applied to the span started by this Transport around each
	// request.
	//
	// StartOptions.SpanKind will always be set to trace.SpanKindClient
	// for spans started by this transport.
	StartOptions trace.StartOptions
}

Transport is an http.RoundTripper that instruments all outgoing requests with stats and tracing. The zero value is intended to be a useful default, but for now it's recommended that you explicitly set Propagation.

Example

Code:

package main

import (
	"go.opencensus.io/plugin/ochttp"
	"go.opencensus.io/stats/view"
	"go.opencensus.io/tag"
	"log"
	"net/http"
)

func main() {
	if err := view.Register(
		// Register to a few default views.
		ochttp.ClientRequestCountByMethod,
		ochttp.ClientResponseCountByStatusCode,
		ochttp.ClientLatencyView,

		// Register to a custom view.
		&view.View{
			Name:        "httpclient_latency_by_hostpath",
			TagKeys:     []tag.Key{ochttp.Host, ochttp.Path},
			Measure:     ochttp.ClientLatency,
			Aggregation: ochttp.DefaultLatencyDistribution,
		},
	); err != nil {
		log.Fatal(err)
	}

	client := &http.Client{
		Transport: &ochttp.Transport{},
	}
	_ = client // use client to perform requests
}

func (*Transport) CancelRequest

func (t *Transport) CancelRequest(req *http.Request)

CancelRequest cancels an in-flight request by closing its connection.

func (*Transport) RoundTrip

func (t *Transport) RoundTrip(req *http.Request) (*http.Response, error)

RoundTrip implements http.RoundTripper, delegating to Base and recording stats and traces for the request.
