OpenCensus Requests Integration

Project description


OpenCensus can trace HTTP requests made with the requests package. The request URL, method, and status will be collected.

You can enable requests integration by specifying 'requests' to trace_integrations.

It’s possible to configure a list of URL you don’t want traced. By default the request to exporter won’t be traced. It’s configurable by giving an array of hostname/port to the attribute excludelist_hostnames in OpenCensus context’s attributes:

Only the hostname must be specified if only the hostname is specified in the URL request.


pip install opencensus-ext-requests


import requests
from opencensus.trace import config_integration
from opencensus.trace.tracer import Tracer

if __name__ == '__main__':
    tracer = Tracer()
    with tracer.span(name='parent'):
        response = requests.get(url='')
