OpenTelemetry Botocore Instrumentation

Instrument Botocore to trace service requests.

There are two options for instrumenting code. The first option is to use the opentelemetry-instrument executable which will automatically instrument your Botocore client. The second is to programmatically enable instrumentation via the following code:


from opentelemetry.instrumentation.botocore import BotocoreInstrumentor
import botocore

# Instrument Botocore

# This will create a span with Botocore-specific attributes
session = botocore.session.get_session()
    access_key="access-key", secret_key="secret-key"
ec2 = self.session.create_client("ec2", region_name="us-west-2")


class opentelemetry.instrumentation.botocore.BotocoreInstrumentor(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: opentelemetry.instrumentation.instrumentor.BaseInstrumentor

Return a list of python packages with versions that the will be instrumented.

The format should be the same as used in requirements.txt or

For example, if an instrumentation instruments requests 1.x, this method should look like:

def instrumentation_dependencies(self) -> Collection[str]:

return [‘requests ~= 1.0’]

This will ensure that the instrumentation will only be used when the specified library is present in the environment.
