Jaeger gRPC Exporter

Exports data via gRPC to Jaeger destinations. By default, this exporter requires TLS and offers queued retry capabilities. A Jaeger Thrift HTTP exporter is available in the contrib repository.

Supported pipeline types: traces

Getting Started

The following settings are required:

  • endpoint (no default): host:port to which the exporter is going to send Jaeger trace data, using the gRPC protocol. The valid syntax is described here

By default, TLS is enabled:

  • insecure (default = false): whether to enable client transport security for the exporter's connection.

As a result, the following parameters are also required:

  • cert_file (no default): path to the TLS cert to use for TLS required connections. Should only be used if insecure is set to false.
  • key_file (no default): path to the TLS key to use for TLS required connections. Should only be used if insecure is set to false.

Example:

exporters:
  jaeger:
    endpoint: jaeger-all-in-one:14250
    cert_file: file.cert
    key_file: file.key
  jaeger/2:
    endpoint: jaeger-all-in-one:14250
    insecure: true

Advanced Configuration

Several helper files are leveraged to provide additional capabilities automatically:

    Functions

    func MetricViews

    func MetricViews() []*view.View

      MetricViews return the metrics views according to given telemetry level.

      func NewFactory

      func NewFactory() component.ExporterFactory

        NewFactory creates a factory for Jaeger exporter

        Types

        type Config

        type Config struct {
        	*config.ExporterSettings       `mapstructure:"-"`
        	exporterhelper.TimeoutSettings `mapstructure:",squash"` // squash ensures fields are correctly decoded in embedded struct.
        	exporterhelper.QueueSettings   `mapstructure:"sending_queue"`
        	exporterhelper.RetrySettings   `mapstructure:"retry_on_failure"`
        
        	configgrpc.GRPCClientSettings `mapstructure:",squash"` // squash ensures fields are correctly decoded in embedded struct.
        }

          Config defines configuration for Jaeger gRPC exporter.

          func (*Config) Validate

          func (cfg *Config) Validate() error

            Validate checks if the exporter configuration is valid
