I’m looking for options regarding exposing distributed traces from Istio to OpenCensus consumers.
- Has any work been done in that direction? I see what appears to be some groundwork here: https://github.com/istio/istio/tree/4090b5cecb44c285e1636ff735f319c40ff1c7fe/mixer/pkg/adapter/opencensus
- I’m considering developing an out-of-process adapter for Mixer. Is that a preferred way to achieve this kind of goal? Should I be looking at the Stackdriver adapter for guidance? https://github.com/istio/istio/tree/master/mixer/adapter/stackdriver
- If I do go down the Mixer adapter route, will Istio consider accepting such contribution into its code base so that my users wouldn’t have to use third-party docker image to access the adapter?
