The Traces is your home base where you can view all the ingested traces. You can view the visual representation of all the spans (parent and child spans), save views, and filter your traces to see only those that are relevant to your investigation or specific use case.

Root Entry Spans: The root entry span specifically pertains to the initial spans in a trace that represent the starting points of requests or transactions within the system. This tab gives users a focused view of these initial spans, allowing them to understand the entry points of requests or transactions into the system.

All Spans: This tab typically refers to a view that displays all the spans collected by a tracing system. When a user searches and filters through spans based on various criteria such as service name, operation name, and additional filters, this tab showcases all collected spans that match specified criteria.
