X-ray Daemon didn't receive data from ECS container

0

I have set up a node app following the guide here https://docs.aws.amazon.com/xray/latest/devguide/xray-daemon-ecs.html

Both containers are running but the X-ray daemon didn't receive data from the nodejs app. I check the x-ray daemon logs and found the below logs. Can anyone help with what I missed please?

[Error] Get instance id metadata failed: RequestError: send request failed
caused by: Get http://169.254.169.254/latest/meta-data/instance-id: dial tcp 169.254.169.254:80: connect: invalid argument

I've seen that same error message for an application that is able to send traces from the app to X-Ray.

Check to see that your X-Ray sidecar container has a port-mapping for 2000 UDP. It should show up in the JSON representation of the task definition like this:

      "portMappings": [
        {
          "hostPort": 2000,
          "protocol": "udp",
          "containerPort": 2000
        }
