NAME

OpenTracing::Implementation - Use OpenTracing with a specific implementation

VERSION

'v0.31.0'

SYNOPSIS

    use OpenTracing::Implementation 'YourBackend', option_one => 'foo';

Or if you like

    use OpenTracing::Implementation;

And one can then do a manual bootstrap

    OpenTracing::Implementation->bootstrap_global_tracer( '+My::Implementation',
        option_one => 'foo',
        option_two => 'bar',
    );

Alternativly, when you like to rely on environment variables

    my $tracer = OpenTracing::Implementation->bootstrap_default_tracer(
        option_one => 'foo',
        option_two => 'bar',
    );
    # but maybe not all options make sense to every tracer, be warned
    
    OpenTracing::GlobalTracer->set_global_tracer( $tracer );

Or if you just want a bootastrapped tracer:

    my $tracer = OpenTracing::Implementation->bootstrap_tracer( 'ProviderFoo'
        option_one => 'foo',
        option_two => 'bar',
    );

DESCRIPTION

This module provides an easy way to bootstrap a specific OpenTracing::Implementation compliant tracer and have it globally available.

CLASS METHODS

bootstrap_tracer

Bootstraps a given tracer implementation with various options for that tracer.

Required Positional Paramaters
implementation_name

Must be a Str type. It will look for the implementation inside the OpenTracing::Implementation namespace, so it is easy to specify any of the exisitng ones like NoOp, Test, and DataDog.

If a tracer lives outside that namespace, it would need to be prepended with a +, like in +My::Iplementation.

Optional Parameters

Any parameters required to bootstrap the given implementation according to their specifications and documentation.

Retruns
The build Tracer object

bootstrap_default_tracer

Same as bootstrap_tracer, except that it will use whatever is specified in the OPENTRACING_IMPLEMENTATION environment variable, Or NoOp if not set.

Do not pass in the name as first argument.

bootstrap_global_tracer

Same as bootstrap_tracer, but additionally sets the 'singleton' inside OpenTracing::GlabalTracer.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

OPENTRACING_IMPLEMENTATION

Will be used when calling bootstrap_default_tracer.
