OpenTracing instrumentation for the asyncio Redis library

Project description


This package enables distributed tracing for the Python asyncio Redis library via The OpenTracing Project. It is heavily influenced by the Redis Opentracing implementation.


Run the following command:

$ pip install AIORedis-Opentracing

Getting started

Tracing a AIORedis client requires calling init_tracing() and optionally specify an OpenTracing-compatible tracer.

import aioredis
import aioredis_opentracing

# If not provided, opentracing.tracer will be used.

redis = await aioredis.create_redis_pool('redis://localhost')
await redis.set('last_access',

It's possible to trace only specific pipelines:


pipe = redis.multi_exec()

# This pipeline will be executed as a single MULTI command.
pipe.set('key1', 'value1')
pipe.set('key2', 'value2')
ok1, ok2 = await pipe.execute()

When pipeline commands are executed as a transaction, these commands will be grouped under a single MULTI operation. They'll also appear as a single operation in the trace. Outside of a transaction, each command will generate a span.
