As a request arrives at a component along its journey, a new span ID is assigned for that component and added to the trace.

Spans may contain tags, or metadata, that can be used to later contextualize the request. Spans typically contain common tags like start timestamps and stop timestamp, though it’s easy to associate semantically relevant tags like an a business entity ID with a span.
