Traces Page Filtering Operations

You can use filters to narrow the number of displayed operations. You can create a Basic filter or an Advanced Filter. You can use the following filter options in the Basic Filter:

  • Service—Operations that originated from a specific service
  • Resource—Operations for a specific resource
  • Operation—Specific operations or functions
  • Error—Operations associated with an error
  • Time—Operations over a specific time period

The Advanced Filter uses various search criteria to perform a query to create a filter. For more information about the criteria you can use in Advanced Filtering, see Advanced Filtering Criteria for Distributed Tracing.

You can also refine your trace data by viewing the operations at the root level. This allows you to focus your search and determine where an issue may be occurring from the root level.

Creating a Traces Basic Filter

  1. On the Traces page, ensure Basic Filtering is enabled.
    Basic Filtering is enabled when the Add Filter option is displayed.
  1. Select a filter option from the Add Filter setting.
    Selecting a filter option allows you to filter on all the operations for that filter. For example, selecting “Error” allows you to further filter on errors in your traces.

The operations for each filter are displayed in the Traces Graph.

Creating a Traces Advanced Filter

  1. On the Traces page, ensure Advanced Filtering is enabled.
    Advanced Filtering is enabled when the Query field is displayed.
  1. Enter you search criteria in the Query field, and then click Search.
    For more information about the criteria you can use in the Query field, see Advanced Filtering Criteria for Distributed Tracing.

The operations for the query are displayed in the Traces Graph.

Viewing Root Operations
