OpenTelemetry Dalli Instrumentation

The OpenTelemetry Dalli gem is a community maintained instrumentation for the Dalli Memcache client.

How do I get started?

Install the gem using:

gem install opentelemetry-instrumentation-dalli

Or, if you use bundler, include opentelemetry-instrumentation-dalli in your Gemfile.


To install the instrumentation, call use with the name of the instrumentation.

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|
  c.use 'OpenTelemetry::Instrumentation::Dalli'

Alternatively, you can also call use_all to install all the available instrumentation.

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|

Configuration options

OpenTelemetry::SDK.configure do |c|
  c.use 'OpenTelemetry::Instrumentation::Dalli', {
    # You may optionally set a value for 'peer.service', which
    # will be included on all spans from this instrumentation:
    peer_service: '',

    # The obfuscation of query in the db.statement attribute is enabled by default.
    # To disable, set db_statement to :include; to omit the query completely, set db_statement to :omit
    db_statement: :include,
