Tracing SQL Queries with the X-Ray SDK for .NET

The SDK provides a wrapper class for System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand named TraceableSqlCommand that you can use in place of SqlCommand.

Example Controller.cs - SQL Client Instrumentation

Initialize an SQL command with the X-Ray SDK for .NET's TraceableSqlCommand class.

using Amazon;
using Amazon.Util;
using Amazon.XRay.Recorder.Core;
using Amazon.XRay.Recorder.Handlers.SqlServer;
  private void QuerySql(int id)
  {
    var connectionString = ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["RDS_CONNECTION_STRING"];
    using (var sqlConnection = new SqlConnection(connectionString))
    using (var sqlCommand = new TraceableSqlCommand("SELECT " + id, sqlConnection))
    {
      sqlCommand.Connection.Open();
      sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
    }
  }
