Jaeger receiver πŸ”—

The Jaeger receiver gathers trace data in Jaeger format. The supported pipeline type is traces. See Process your data with pipelines for more information.

Get started πŸ”—


This component is included in the default configuration of the Splunk Distribution of the OpenTelemetry Collector when deploying in host monitoring (agent) mode. See Collector deployment modes for more information.

For details about the default configuration, see Configure the Collector for Kubernetes with Helm, Collector for Linux default configuration, or Collector for Windows default configuration. You can customize your configuration any time as explained in this document.

Follow these steps to configure and activate the component:

  1. Deploy the Splunk Distribution of the OpenTelemetry Collector to your host or container platform:

  1. Configure the Jaeger receiver as described in the next section.

  2. Restart the Collector.

Sample configurations πŸ”—

To activate the Jaeger receiver, add jaeger to the receivers section of your configuration file, as in the following sample configurations. By default, the Jaeger receiver doesn’t serve any protocol. You must name a protocol under the protocols object to start the receiver.

See Settings for more details.


Supported protocols πŸ”—

The Jaeger receiver supports the following protocols:

  • grpc. is the default endpoint.

  • thrift_binary. is the default endpoint.

  • thrift_compact. is the default endpoint.

  • thrift_http. is the default endpoint.

Optionally, you can configure an endpoint.

Advanced configuration πŸ”—

Use the UDP protocols, currently thrift_binary and thrift_compact, to set additional server options:

  • queue_size: Sets the maximum of not yet handled requests for the server. 1000 by default.

  • max_packet_size: Sets the maximum UDP packet size. 65_000 by default.

  • workers: Sets the number of workers consuming the server queue. 10 by default.

  • socket_buffer_size: Sets the buffer size of the connection socket, in bytes. 0 by default (no buffer).

For example:

    queue_size: 5_000
    max_packet_size: 131_072
    workers: 50
    socket_buffer_size: 8_388_608

Additional settings πŸ”—

The Jaeger receiver uses helper files for additional capabilities:

Remote sampling πŸ”—

Since version 0.61.0, remote sampling is no longer supported. Instead, since version 0.59.0, use the jaegerremotesapmpling extension for remote sampling.
