Exporting traces to AWS X-Ray

AWS X-Ray is a service offered by Amazon that provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application, and shows a map of your application’s underlying components.

The Opencensus exporter allows you export data to AWS X-Ray. Enabling it only requires you to add the xray exporter in the opencensus module.

The following configuration snippet sends data to your X-Ray:

{
  "extra_config": {
    "telemetry/opencensus": {
      "sample_rate": 100,
      "reporting_period": 0,
      "exporters": {
        "xray": {
          "version": "latest",
          "region": "eu-west-1",
          "use_env": false,
          "access_key_id": "myaccesskey",
          "secret_access_key": "mysecretkey"
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

As with all OpenCensus exporters, you can add optional settings in the telemetry/opencensus level:

enabled_layers

Lets you specify what data you want to export. All layers are enabled by default unless you declare this section.
backend

boolean
Reports the activity between KrakenD and your services
Defaults to false
pipe

boolean
Reports the activity at the beginning of the proxy layer. It gives a more detailed view of the internals of the pipe between end-users and KrakenD, having into account merging of different backends.
Defaults to false
router

boolean
Reports the activity between end-users and KrakenD
Defaults to false
reporting_period

integer
The number of seconds passing between reports. If duration is less than or equal to zero, it enables the default behavior of each exporter.
Defaults to 0
sample_rate

integer
A number between 0 (no requests at all) and 100 (all requests) representing the percentage of sampled requests you want to send to the exporter. Sampling the 100% of the requests is generally discouraged when the relationship between traffic and dedicated resources is sparse.
Defaults to 0

* indicates a required field. Parameters in alphabetical order.

Then, the exporters key must contain an xray entry with the following properties:

xray

object
AWS X-Ray is a service offered by Amazon that provides an end-to-end view of requests as they travel through your application, and shows a map of your application’s underlying components.
* Required combinations: ( region + version + access_key_id + secret_access_key ) , or ( region + version + use_env )
access_key_id

string
Your access key ID provided by Amazon. Needed when use_env is unset or set to false.
region *

string
The AWS geographical region, e.g, us-east-1.
secret_access_key

string
Your secret access key provided by Amazon. Needed when use_env is unset or set to false.
use_env

boolean
When true the AWS credentials (access_key_id and secret_access_key) are taken from environment vars. Don’t specify them then.
Defaults to false
version *

string
The version of the AWS X-Ray service to use.
Defaults to "KrakenD-opencensus"

* indicates a required field. Parameters in alphabetical order.

See also the additional settings of the Opencensus module that can be declared.
