OpenTracing::GlobalTracer - Easy Access to the Tracer Singleton
use OpenTracing::GlobalTracer qw/$TRACER/; my $foo_tracer = OpenTracing::Implementation::Foo::Tracer->new( ); OpenTracing::GlobalTracer->set_global_trace( $foo_tracer );
and in the various part of the code:
my $global_tracer = OpenTracing::GlobalTracer->get_global_tracer( ); my $span = $global_tracer->get_active_span; my $scope = $TRACER->start_active_span( $operation_name );
This module give easy access to the OpenTracing singleton.
During import, when `use`ing the module, it can take the name of a variable to use in the current scope.
The modules provide two methods, `set_global_tracer` and `get_global_tracer`.
If none is set (or cleared), per definition, it will give back a 'NoOp' implementation.
OpenTracing::GlobalTracer->set_global_trace( $tracer );
Sets the global tracer singleton.
my $global_tracer = OpenTracing::GlobalTracer->get_global_tracer( );
Returns a global tracer if some is set. If none is set, it will return the OpenTracing::Implementation::NoOp implementation, compliant to the definition to prevent crashing.
This variable can be set to override the default NoOp implementation.
When using the
$TRACER variable, one still needs to be careful, it could be
undef if no tracer wasn't initialised, or explicitly been erased. This may result in errors like "can't use method ... on undef".
