GCP Stackdriver Trace (version v1.*.*)

create_span

Creates a new span.

Parameters

name (required)

The resource name of the span in the following format:

projects/[PROJECT_ID]/traces/[TRACE_ID]/spans/SPAN_ID is a unique identifier for a trace within a project;

it is a 32-character hexadecimal encoding of a 16-byte array.

[SPAN_ID] is a unique identifier for a span within a trace; it
is a 16-character hexadecimal encoding of an 8-byte array.

Type: string

$.xgafv

V1 error format.

Type: string

Potential values: 1, 2

$body

A span represents a single operation within a trace. Spans can be
nested to form a trace tree. Often, a trace contains a root span
that describes the end-to-end latency, and one or more subspans for
its sub-operations. A trace can also contain multiple root spans,
or none at all. Spans do not need to be contiguous—there may be
gaps or overlaps between spans in a trace.
