For now, please read the OpenTracing Python docs.
You can also checkout these samples for examples of how to use tracing in Python:
We’d love your feedback.
If your app is written in Python, you can get started quickly with LightStep. Download the Auto-Installer, then configure it to communicate with your LightStep Satellites. When you deploy your app, all supported frameworks, data stores, and libraries will begin sending trace data to LightStep.
Once you've implemented your tracers and confirmed that they are communicating with your LightStep Satellite, it's time to add spans to your operations and connect the spans together to create a full trace that you can observe in LightStep.
While distributed tracing can give you a great picture of the health and efficiency of your system, the information you get is only as good as the information you provide through instrumentation of your app. Too little and you may not find the actual root cause of an issue. Too much, or focusing too far down in the stack, and you'll end up with noise that distracts from the real issues.
