On the Invocation Trace Query page, you can query the details about a specific trace by trace ID, or query traces by multiple filtering criteria.

TraceId: the unique ID of each trace, through which you can accurately query the calling data.

Trace: supports distributed traces, and supports querying inter-service traces and local service traces by using the local call method stack.
  • Distributed trace (inter-service trace): a trace between services.
  • Local trace (method stack): the local method stack of one-time inter-service traces.

Query traces by using either of the following methods:

  • Precise query: Select TraceId from the Parameter Name drop-down list. Enter the specific trace ID in the Parameter Value field, and click Query.
  • Advanced query: Query traces by setting multiple criteria.


Follow these steps to access the Invocation Trace Query page.

  1. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Application Monitoring > Invocation Trace Query.

Query traces

You can query a trace by specifying the trace ID or using multiple filtering criteria.

Table 1. Query fields
Query field Description
Call Type
  • HTTP Entry Point: The client uses HTTP protocol for calling.
  • Dubbo Call: The client uses Dubbo for calling.
  • HSF Call: The client uses HSF for calling.
Takes Longer Than The consumed time for the call is longer than the specified milliseconds.
Show Abnormal Calls Only Check this option to single out calls that throw exceptions.
Client Name/Client IP The name and IP of the application that initiates the call.
Server Name/Server IP The name and IP address of the called application.
Interface Name The name of the interface called by the application. Prefix fuzzy match is supported. For example, you can use keyword api or resource to search for the /api/ResourceQuery interface.

View inter-service traces (distributed traces)

Go to the Distributed Invocation Trace page by clicking the trace ID of the trace you want to view.

Field description

  • Status: whether the call is normal. Red indicates that an exception exists in the local trace of the service. Green indicates that the call is normal.

  • IP Address: the IP address of this application.

  • Call Type: the type of the call, which corresponds to the Call Type option of the ad hoc query.

  • Timeline: the time consumption of each inter-service trace, and time distribution of this trace relative to that of the entire trace.

View local trace of the service (method stack)

On the Invocation Trace page, click the magnifier icon in the Method Stack column to go to the Method Stack page.

Field description

  • Called Method: the method for calling the local method stack. After the call method is expanded, the next-layer calls of the method are displayed.

  • Line Number: the number of the line where the local method code is located.

  • Expansion information:

    • Parameters: the input parameters of the call.
    • SQL: the SQL statements called by the database.
    • Exception: the details of exceptions and other information.
  • Timeline: the time distribution of every method call of the local trace.
