Zipkin is a distributed tracing system that helps us gather timing data for all the disparate services at Twitter.

TraceId, SpanId and ParentId are now UUID generated.

Compiling and Running this version

Help Required and Work To-do

  • Fix build scripts to run without switching to the branch (uuid-work)

    • Make release versions for twitter-util-uuid, twitter-finagle-uuid, twitter-ostrich-uuid and twitter-server-uuid so they work with twitter-zipkin-uuid
  • Tests

    • Need help fixing all the tests.
  • Suggested development changes

    • TraceId, SpanId and ParentId should be type aliased to make future changes simple
    • Rich implicits might be a better way to port than current port. But I am not a scala expert.

Get involved

Check out the #zipkin IRC channel on to see if any developers are there for questions or live debugging tips. Otherwise, there are two mailing lists you can use to get in touch with other users and developers.
