OpenCensus gRPC Exporter

Exports traces and/or metrics via gRPC using OpenCensus format.

Supported pipeline types: traces, metrics

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.


    endpoint: opencensus2:55678
    cert_file: file.cert
    key_file: file.key
    endpoint: opencensus2:55678
    insecure: true

Advanced Configuration

Several helper files are leveraged to provide additional capabilities automatically:

func NewFactory

func NewFactory() component.ExporterFactory

    NewFactory creates a factory for OTLP exporter.


    type Config

    type Config struct {
    	*config.ExporterSettings      `mapstructure:"-"`
    	configgrpc.GRPCClientSettings `mapstructure:",squash"` // squash ensures fields are correctly decoded in embedded struct.
    	exporterhelper.QueueSettings  `mapstructure:"sending_queue"`
    	exporterhelper.RetrySettings  `mapstructure:"retry_on_failure"`
    	// The number of workers that send the gRPC requests.
    	NumWorkers int `mapstructure:"num_workers"`

      Config defines configuration for OpenCensus exporter.

      func (*Config) Validate

      func (cfg *Config) Validate() error

        Validate checks if the exporter configuration is valid
