The Python agent provides automatic tracing and metrics for Python-based applications.
To get up and running with APM, you'll install and enable the AppOptics Python Agent. After that, a restart of the application will load the agent and automatically begin reporting data.
Custom instrumentation can be used to get extra application-specific visibility in AppOptics APM, both adding custom spans for distributed tracing and adding custom timers/counters for metric reporting and alerting. Check out the SDK.
