Hi Nuc,

Welcome!  If you would like to try out HTrace on a real system, Hadoop
is the best choice.

There is some information about setting up HTrace+Hadoop here:

If you would like to take a look at the code for HTrace in Hadoop, a
good starting point is here:

Perhaps one point that might be confusing is that in general, HTrace is
agnostic to the choice of RPC systems.  Also, when HTrace is integrated
into an RPC system, the source code for that integration will be in the
repository where the RPC system is implemented, not in the HTrace code
repository.  In general the integration with RPC is pretty simple-- just
a matter of adding an optional field with an extra 128 bits for a parent
span ID.
