Distributed tracing with Resque background jobs

Helios' instrumentation of Resque enables developers to visualize, troubleshoot and test their async jobs that are a part of the E2E applicative flows.

Below are a few examples of how to leverage E2E observability in Helios when using Resque async jobs.

Tracing & visualization

The visualization of traces containing Resque flows group together the enqueueing actions and the jobs themselves which are originated from the same service, so it will be clear what belongs to a single service.


Helios is a a dev-first observability platform that helps dev and ops teams shorten the time to find and fix issues in distributed applications. Built on OpenTelemetry, Helios provides traces and correlates them with logs and metrics, enabling end-to-end app visibility and faster troubleshooting.
