Both local and remote call are traced. Zipkin will receive the action pattern as the method name and the seneca tag as the serviceName.

Assuming you have installed zipkin with the docker container linked above, you can reach the zipkin dashboard at http://localhost:9411/ where you should find all the traces collected for your service.
The plugin accepts the same options of zipkin-simple:
- host: location of zipkin server
- port: port of the zipkin http transport
- url: path where to send traces
- transport: which transport to use (
http-simpleor custom function)
- sampling: the sampling ratio, from 0 to 1 (0 means don't send data, 1 send all data)
- for the http transport, batchSize and batchTimeout control the batching of spans and traces
Currently only supports zipkin http transport
