The OpenCensus exporter allows you to export traces and metrics from the OpenCensus Service to a service of your choice.
- Your backend could be OpenCensus Protocol compliant.
- You might want to daisy chain various Collectors and then export once (for example to preserve bandwidth or connections or create a mesh network to batch data and piggyback due to connection limits with the outside world/APM backend).
In Service’s YAML configuration file, under section “exporters” and sub-section “opencensus”, configure these fields:
exporters: opencensus: endpoint: "<host:port>" compression: "<compression e.g. gzip>"
exporters: opencensus: endpoint: "localhost:44788"
