This is an example app where two php services collaborate on an http request. Notably, timing of these requests are recorded into Zipkin, a distributed tracing system.
This allows you to see the how long the whole operation took, as well how much time was spent in each service.
This example has two services: frontend and backend. They both report trace data to zipkin.
To setup the demo, do
Once the dependencies are installed, run the services:
# Run zipkin (optional): composer run-zipkin # In terminal 1: composer run-frontend # In terminal 2 composer run-backend
And then, request the frontend:
If you need to pass the zipkin endpoint, just pass the reporter
HTTP_REPORTER_URL env variable.
# In terminal 1: HTTP_REPORTER_URL=http://myzipkin:9411/api/v2/span composer run-frontend # In terminal 2 HTTP_REPORTER_URL=http://myzipkin:9411/api/v2/span composer run-backend
