OpenTelemetry Trace Format

SkyWalking can receive traces from Traces in OTLP format and convert them to Zipkin Trace format eventually. For data analysis and queries related to Zipkin Trace, please refer to the relevant documentation.

OTLP Trace handler references the Zipkin Exporter in the OpenTelemetry Collector to convert the data format.

  1. Make sure to enable otlp-traces handler in OTLP receiver of application.yml.
  selector: default
    enabledHandlers: otlp-traces
  1. Make sure to enable zipkin receiver and zipkin query in application.yml for config the zipkin.

Setup Query and Lens UI

Please read deploy Lens UI documentation for query OTLP traces.
