Distributed tracing from Envoy



I’d like to test sending traces from an Envoy proxy, and I’m wondering if anyone has an example of this working? Configuring it to point to seems straightforward enough, and it supports zipkin format.

The difficulty is the need to send the Api-Key, Data-Format, and Data-Format-Version headers. I don’t see a way using the standard Envoy zipkin configuration to include those. Anyone know if this is possible and have a working example?

Thanks for any help/ideas.


Hi @mason.jones! I am eager to see what kind of ideas you get as well. Hopefully others in similar situations will jump in on this thread and share insights and maybe even an example! :blush:
