Use PHP to instrument a service for distributed tracing using OpenTracing.
Once you’ve instrumented a service, you can manually add spans where needed.
We’d love your feedback.
Configure your tracer to communicate with the Lightstep Satellites and create a single span on your PHP service. You install the Lightstep tracer and then use the Lightstep API 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.
