I’ve specifically signed up for this forum to give a shout out to @andrei because of his appearance on the Go Time podcast. He had great answers to all the questions that the Go Time team fired at him and he answered a lot of questions for me personally.
We’re running cockroach internally against which we build the new iteration of our product that will span across the atlantic. And, along with this new iteration, I’m trying to incorporate tracing in all our systems. Having the same goal as cockroach of integrating it in our logger (i’ve built something around gokit’s
log.Logger interface), it was great hear that we have a big open source project as an example of how to work with tracing. I was delighted to see that after setting the zipkin setting in the cluster, that it just worked!
While you can expect me to get back here with loads of questions in the future as we keep building, I just have a single question for now: Is there any way to get a tracing context into cockroach to continue the trace from our system?
