This integration enables you to send traces from your instrumented applications running in Docker. This is achieved by using a dedicated Logz.io OpenTelemetry collector deployed in the same Docker network as your application. This collector configuration can collect traces from:

  • OpenTelemetry
  • Zipkin
  • Jaeger
  • OpenCensus

Before you begin, you’ll need:

  • An instrumented application running in a Docker network
  • An active account with Logz.io
  • A name defined for your tracing service

In the same Docker network as your application:

Pull the Docker image for the OpenTelemetry collector
docker pull logzio/otel-collector-traces
Run the container

When running on a Linux host, use the --network host flag to publish the collector ports:

docker run \
--network host \

When running on MacOS or Windows hosts, publish the ports using the -p flag:

docker run \
-p 55678-55680:55678-55680 \
-p 1777:1777 \
-p 9411:9411 \
-p 9943:9943 \
-p 6831:6831 \
-p 6832:6832 \
-p 14250:14250 \
-p 14268:14268 \
-p 4317:4317 \
-p 55681:55681 \

Replace <<TRACING-SHIPPING-TOKEN>> with the token of the account you want to ship to.

If your account is hosted in any region other than us, replace LOGZIO_ACCOUNT_REGION_CODE> with the applicable region code.

Run the application

Run the application to generate traces.

Check Logz.io for your traces

Give your traces some time to get from your system to ours, and then open Tracing.
