You can display traces using the tracing service GUI.

To begin tracing, click the app switcher menu (App Switcher menu (a nine-dot square) lets you select another application) and then select Jaeger. The tracing tool opens in a separate browser window.

When tracing, you can specify:

  • Service to trace
  • Operation to trace (all or specific) for each service
  • Tags
  • Lookback period (by default, over the last hour)
  • Minimum duration
  • Number of results to display (by default, 20)

The service displays all found traces with a chart giving the time duration for each trace. You can select a trace to display how the trace is served by difference services in cascade and the time spent on each service.

For information about the tracing tool, see the documentation provided with the tool.
