Distributed Tracing View

New Member

Hi All,

We have logs from IIS Servers and application service k8s pod logs which details TraceId, SpanId and parentSpanID for all incoming requests.

In detail, request traverses as below:
Browser -> IIS -> ServiceA -> ServiceB, response back to ServiceA -> IIS -> Browser.

Except at IIS, a new span would be created on every service component. Logs will also include parentSpanID as per original spanId. Hence, we would almost have below logging.

Type=request ServiceA : TR1 SP2 parentSpan=SP1
Type=request ServiceB : TR1 SP3 parentSpan=SP2
Type=response ServiceA : TR1 SP2 parentSpan=SP1
Type=response ServiceB : TR1 SP3 parentSpan=SP2

I am trying to setup a tracer view where we can see duration or failure of each span generated for a given traceId.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish it.
Are there any Splunk Apps developed for viewing distributed tracing ?
