Trace Data Forwarding from Externally Instrumented Applications

If you did not use LogicMonitor to instrument your applications, you can modify the receiver value in the OpenTelemetry Collector configuration to forward traces to LogicMonitor. This enables the collector to receive traces in the format that the application was instrumented in, and then forward the traces to LogicMonitor in OpenTelemetry format via otlphttpexporter.

Forwarding Traces from Externally Instrumented Applications

Note: The following uses Jaeger as an example receiver value. Reference the applicable documentation from the libraries you used to instrument your applications.

In the OpenTelemetry Collector configuration, modify the receiver value to use the library you used to instrument your application, similar to the following:

receivers:
  jaeger:
    protocols:
      grpc:
      thrift_http:
exporters:
  otlphttp:
    endpoint:https://${LOGICMONITOR_ACCOUNT}.logicmonitor.com/rest/api/vi/traces
    headers:
      Authorization: Bearer ${LOGICMONITOR_BEARER_TOKEN}
service:

  extensions: [nop]
  traces:
    receivers: [jaeger]
    exporters: [otlphttp]

Traces display in your LogicMonitor portal when the application emits the traces.
