HTTP Client-Server Example

An HTTP client connects to an HTTP server. They both generate span information to stdout. These instructions expect you have docker-compose installed.

Bring up the http-server and http-client services to run the example:

docker-compose up --detach http-server http-client

The http-client service sends just one HTTP request to http-server and then exits. View the span generated to stdout in the logs:

docker-compose logs http-client

View the span generated by http-server in the logs:

docker-compose logs http-server

Shut down the services when you are finished with the example:

docker-compose down
