For now, please read the OpenTracing Ruby docs.
We’d love your feedback.
If your app is written in Ruby, 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 libraries will begin sending trace data to Lightstep.
Configure your tracer to communicate with the Lightstep Satellites and create a single span on your Ruby service. You install both the OpenTracing API and Lightstep tracer and then use the OpenTracing and Lightstep APIs to instrument your code.
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.
