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.
Solved! Go to Solution.
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
