I tried to read manually the tracing header in a Kafka message set by Dynatrace in a readable format, but it seems to be not mappable to a String. Can someone tell me what format the header has? I see it is a byte array, but when I map it to a string it is gibberish, so probably it is in a different format.
What I actually want to do is to create a message receiver that is not monitored by Dynatrace but still use the tracing information provided by Dynatrace e.g. for logging purposes.

Hi @sselzer ,
the format of the header is like following:
If the header is lost(usually we see it gets blocked by FW) and with it the traces' context, the OneAgent will start a new trace (yes the chain would be broken/split).
Maybe these pages in our documentation can help further
