Hey Sobe,

In your example we see just DB calls but presumably above that there is another span that kicked off all of these. What's likely happening in those gaps is code execution related to the span that kicked off these DB calls. So something will be running, making DB calls, then doing some transformations or something else related to the data it got back, then running more DB calls, rinse and repeat. Without knowing the application it's difficult to say exactly. Those yellow sections should just be execution time for the DB calls.

You could also click on the parent span and then look at the code level tab to see if anything was captured as happening in-between. 

Hope this helps point you in the right direction!
