This package enables distributed tracing for the Python redis library.
Note: If you need to use the old OpenTracing 1.0 API, use the 0.x releases.
Run the following command:
$ pip install redis_opentracing
Tracing a Redis client requires setting up an OpenTracing-compatible tracer, and calling
init_tracing() to set up the tracing wrappers. See the examples directory for several different approaches.
import redis import redis_opentracing redis_opentracing.init_tracing(tracer) client = redis.StrictRedis() client.set('last_access', datetime.datetime.now())
It's possible to trace only specific Redis clients:
redis_opentracing.init_tracing(tracer, trace_all_classes=False) redis_opentracing.trace_client(client) # Only commands and pipelines executed through this client will # be traced. res = client.get('last_access')
It's also possible to trace only specific pipelines:
redis_opentracing.init_tracing(tracer, trace_all_classes=False) pipe = client.pipeline() redis_opentracing.trace_pipeline(pipe) # This pipeline will be executed as a single MULTI command. pipe.lpush('fruits', 'lemon', 'watermelon') pipe.rpush('fruits', 'pineapple', 'apple') pipe.execute()
When pipeline commands are executed as a transaction, these commands will be grouped under a single
MULTI operation. They'll also appear as a single operation in the trace. Outside of a transaction, each command will generate a span.
And it's also possible to trace only specific pubsub objects:
redis_opentracing.init_tracing(tracer, trace_all_classes=False) pubsub = client.pubsub() redis_opentracing.trace_pubsub(pubsub) pubsub.subscribe('incoming-fruits') msg = pubsub.get_message() # This message will appear as a 'SUB' operation.
Incoming messages through
run_in_thread() will be traced, and any command executed through the pubsub's
execute_command() method will be traced too.
