+===== Adding additional SpanReceivers
+https://github.com/openzipkin/zipkin[Zipkin]
+has a SpanReceiver supported by HTrace and popularized by Twitter
+that users looking for a more graphical trace display may opt to use.
+The following steps configure Accumulo to use org.apache.htrace.impl.ZipkinSpanReceiver
+in addition to the Accumulo's default ZooTraceClient, and they serve as a template
+for adding any SpanReceiver to Accumulo:
+
+1. Add the Jar containing the ZipkinSpanReceiver class file to the
++$ACCUMULO_HOME/lib/+.  It is critical that the Jar is placed in
++lib/+ and NOT in +lib/ext/+ so that the new SpanReceiver class
+is visible to the same class loader of htrace-core.
+
+2. Add the following to +$ACCUMULO_HOME/conf/accumulo-site.xml+:
+
+  <property>
+    <name>trace.span.receivers</name>
+    <value>org.apache.accumulo.tracer.ZooTraceClient,org.apache.htrace.impl.ZipkinSpanReceiver</value>
+  </property>
+
+3. Restart your Accumulo tablet servers.
+
+In order to use ZipkinSpanReceiver from a client as well as the Accumulo server,
+
+1. Ensure your client can see the ZipkinSpanReceiver class at runtime. For Maven projects,
+this is easily done by adding to your client's pom.xml (taking care to specify a good version)
