OpenTelemetry kafka-python integration



pip install opentelemetry-instrumentation-kafka-python


Instrument kafka-python to report instrumentation-kafka produced and consumed messages


..code:: python

from opentelemetry.instrumentation.kafka import KafkaInstrumentor from kafka import KafkaProducer, KafkaConsumer

# Instrument kafka KafkaInstrumentor().instrument()

# report a span of type producer with the default settings producer = KafkaProducer(bootstrap_servers=[‘localhost:9092’]) producer.send(‘my-topic’, b’raw_bytes’)

# report a span of type consumer with the default settings consumer = KafkaConsumer(‘my-topic’, group_id=’my-group’, bootstrap_servers=[‘localhost:9092’]) for message in consumer: # process message

The _instrument() method accepts the following keyword args: tracer_provider (TracerProvider) - an optional tracer provider produce_hook (Callable) - a function with extra user-defined logic to be performed before sending the message this function signature is: def produce_hook(span: Span, args, kwargs) consume_hook (Callable) - a function with extra user-defined logic to be performed after consuming a message this function signature is: def consume_hook(span: Span, record: kafka.record.ABCRecord, args, kwargs) for example:


class opentelemetry.instrumentation.kafka.KafkaInstrumentor(*args, **kwargs)[source]

Bases: BaseInstrumentor

An instrumentor for kafka module See 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 pyproject.toml.

For example, if an instrumentation instruments requests 1.x, this method should look like: :rtype: Collection[str]

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.
