Long span error message cannot be read by humans

Hi there,

Inspecting a trace which contains a span with the ERROR spanStatus code, Grafana doesn’t allow for reading the full error message (see attached screenshot, with the cropped message). So far I haven’t been able to find any way to get the full error message outside of using my browser inspector.

I’m thinking of adding the error as a span event or attribute, but this isn’t ideal. I was also trying to find a way to open a single span in a different Grafana page/view, but didn’t find anything.

FYI the related instrumentation is based on OpenTelemetry’s nodejs library, and the related code is:

  code: SpanStatusCode.ERROR,
  message, // string

Should I do something differently?
