Indication that span limits were reached in Trace View

Opentelemetry supports span limits which make sure that spans do not grow indefinitely, e.g. by limitting the number of events that are recorded. However, a counter is present to indicate that some events have been dropped and are not present on the span.

I was unable to find this in the Grafana UI. I tried getting the raw trace from Tempo API and there is a field droppedEventsCount on each span.

Am I overlooking something or is this information not present?

Hey @mladedav, I created this issue to track this request.


Thanks. I wanted to create an issue today but I was unsure if it was a UX issue, grafana/ui package issue or even a chore so I didn’t in the end.
