Running Jaeger

Once the operator has been installed and deployed, you can start a Jaeger instance by modifying the below snippet for your needs, saving it as jaeger.yaml and running kubectl apply -f jaeger.yaml:

kind: Jaeger
  name: simplest
  namespace: observability

You will then be able to access the Jaeger UI using the IP address of your cluster. This should be displayed when you run kubectl get -n observability ingress:

$ kubectl get -n observability ingress
NAME             CLASS    HOSTS   ADDRESS          PORTS   AGE
simplest-query   <none>   *       <ip-address>      80      2m
