Manual instrument SDK

We have manual instrument SDK contributed from the community.

  • Go2Sky. Go SDK follows SkyWalking format.

Welcome to consider contributing in following languages:

  • Python
  • C++

What is SkyWalking formats and propagation protocols?

See these protocols in protocols document.

Can SkyWalking provide OpenCensus exporter in above languages?

At the moment I am writing this document, NO. Because, OC(OpenCensus) don’t support context extendable mechanism, and no hook mechanism when manipulate spans. SkyWalking relied on those to propagate more things than trace id and span id.

We are already in the middle of discussion, see https://github.com/census-instrumentation/opencensus-specs/issues/70. After OC provides this officially, we can.

How about Zipkin instrument SDKs?
