Use Spring Cloud Sleuth to set up distributed tracing in your Spring Boot apps.

Really really nice post! I dare to comment there are only two things I found could be improved:
- On the first diagram there is a Span ID = C that can be misleading to totally beginners. I think that diagram could be made simpler by removing it.
- Tiny typo on “…to show you how each log even will…”, should be event.
Please keep posting about Spring Boot!
Great. Thanks for the suggestions. I’ll make some updates. I think rather than getting rid of the custom span, I’ll add a label and improve the explanation of what’s happening in the text. I don’t want to give the impression that a span as a unit of work is necessarily so closely tied to HTTP requests alone.
