Que Instrumentation

The Que instrumentation is a community-maintained instrumentation for the Que.

How do I get started?

Install the gem using:

gem install opentelemetry-instrumentation-que

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


To install the instrumentation, add the gem to your Gemfile:

gem 'opentelemetry-instrumentation-que'

Then call use with the name of the instrumentation:

require 'rubygems'
require 'bundler/setup'


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

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

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|

By default tracing information is propagated using Que Job tags. This can be disabled using:

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|
  c.use 'OpenTelemetry::Instrumentation::Que', propagation_style: :none

If you wish the job will be executed in the same logicial trace as a direct child of the span that enqueued the job then set propagation_style to child. By default the jobs are just linked together.

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|
  c.use 'OpenTelemetry::Instrumentation::Que', propagation_style: :child
