Overview

This plugin implements the Zipkin http server to gather trace and timing data needed to troubleshoot latency problems in microservice architectures.

Configuration

[[inputs.zipkin]]
    path = "/api/v1/spans" # URL path for span data

The plugin accepts spans in JSON or thrift if the Content-Type is application/json or application/x-thrift, respectively. If Content-Type is not set, then the plugin assumes it is JSON format.
