Ethon Instrumentation

The ethon instrumentation is a community-maintained instrumentation for the ethon HTTP library.

How do I get started?

Install the gem using:

gem install opentelemetry-instrumentation-ethon

Or, if you use bundler, include opentelemetry-instrumentation-ethon to your Gemfile.


To install the instrumentation, call use with the name of the instrumentation.

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|
  c.use 'OpenTelemetry::Instrumentation::Ethon'

Alternatively, you can also call use_all to install all the available instrumentation.

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|


Example usage of faraday can be seen in the ./example/ethon.rb file here
