Zipkin is a community of mostly site owners. By that we mean end users who run Zipkin as a part of additional roles in their company. These documents are created by site owners, so that you can benefit from experience. While sites are all different, there are patterns and certainly it helps to know others' experience in real life.
Sites listed here use Zipkin technology in instrumentation, formats or backend. For example, some sites use tools like zipkin-php or zipkin-go to collect data, but export it to Google Stackdriver for analysis and visualization. Others use our data format in their tracing pipeline which gathers data from Zipkin tools, alternative or legacy internal ones. Some use Zipkin backends, but other agent technology, such as SkyWalking to gather it. By sharing real life setups, you can ideally understand the different approaches that coexist to solve the problem of tracing.
