These fields contain data about the transaction itself.
The high level status of the transaction. The way to compute this value depends on the protocol, but the result has a meaning independent of the protocol.
- The command/verb/method of the transaction. For HTTP, this is the method name (GET, POST, PUT, and so on), for SQL this is the verb (SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, and so on).
- The logical resource that this transaction refers to. For HTTP, this is the URL path up to the last slash (/). For example, if the URL is
/users/1, the resource is
/users. For databases, the resource is typically the table name. The field is not filled for all transaction types.
The path the transaction refers to. For HTTP, this is the URL. For SQL databases, this is the table name. For key-value stores, this is the key.
The query in a human readable format. For HTTP, it will typically be something like
GET /users/_search?name=test. For MySQL, it is something like
SELECT id from users where name=test.
The request parameters. For HTTP, these are the POST or GET parameters. For Thrift-RPC, these are the parameters from the request.
