Getting Country Information from IP in Signoz

TLDR Syed asked for operator in Signoz to get country info from IP. nitya-signoz stated it's not available in OpenTelemetry but suggested using Fluentd to forward data to Signoz.

Hi Team,
Ankit nitya-signoz
What is the operator in signoz to get country information from IP?
like we are doing in fluentd
    <filter nginxweblogs>
    @type    geoip
    geoip_lookup_keys  host
    <record>
    city  ${city.names.en["host"]}
        lat   ${location.latitude["host"]}
        lon   ${location.longitude["host"]}
        country ${country.iso_code["host"]}
        country_name    ${country.names.en["host"]}
      </record>
    </filter>

How can I achieve this in signoz?

As of now, opentelemtry doesn’t have support for something like this.

nitya-signoz can't they still use fluentd to get those data and feed to signoz?

yes that would be great. Right now we are sending fluentd to kafka, it would be great if we can send also to signoz

Yes they use fluentd to forward the data to otel collector. You can follow this doc to forward your data from fluentd to signoz https://signoz.io/docs/userguide/fluentd_to_signoz/

but I tried logstash, all the fields get messed up. That was because I did not transform?

Yeah, you will have to take care of transformation logic in your receiver.
