For now, please read the OpenTracing C++ README on GitHub.
We’d love your feedback.
This Quick Start will have you configure your tracer to communicate with the Lightstep Satellites and create a single span on your C++ service. You install both the OpenTracing API and Lightstep tracer and then use the OpenTracing and Lightstep APIs to instrument your code.
If you've instrumented your app using a Lightstep auto-installer, or if you've only just started instrumenting individual services, you'll likely need to add spans to create traces from a complete request.
Observability gives you the necessary information about the health and efficiency of your system. However, systems are large and complex, so the question is what do you decide to measure and where do you start?
