LevelDescription

Steampipe is instrumented with the Open Telemetry SDK which supports the standard SDK environment variables. If OTEL_EXPORTER_OTLP_ENDPOINT is not specified, Steampipe will default to localhost:4317.

Currently, Steampipe only supports OTLP/gRPC.

The Steampipe Plugin SDK added OpenTelemetry support in version 3.3.0 - plugins must be compiled with v3.3.0 or later.

Usage

Trace a single query and send to default endpoint (localhost:4317):

STEAMPIPE_OTEL_LEVEL=TRACE steampipe query "select * from aws_iam_role"

Turn on Metrics and Tracing for the session:

export OTEL_EXPORTER_OTLP_ENDPOINT=my-otel-collector.mydomain.com:4317
export STEAMPIPE_OTEL_LEVEL=ALL
steampipe query
