# START A TRACE, ADD A SPAN, AND LOG AN INFO EVENT
###############################################################
#
# AppOpticsAPM::SDK.start_trace()
# This method starts a trace. It is handy for background jobs,
# workers, or scripts, that are not part of a rack application

###############################################################
# LOG AN ERROR EVENT
###############################################################
#
# AppOpticsAPM::SDK.log_exception()
# This method adds an error event to the trace, which will be
# displayed and counted as exception on the appoptics dashboard.

# TRACE A METHOD
###############################################################
#
# AppOpticsAPM::SDK.trace_method()
# This creates a span every time the defined method is run.
# The method can be of any (accessible) type (instance,
# singleton, private, protected etc.).

# SET A CUSTOM TRANSACTION NAME
###############################################################
#
# AppOpticsAPM::SDK.set_transaction_name()
#
# this method can be called anytime after a trace has been started to add a
# custom name for the whole transaction.
# In case of a controller the trace is usually started in rack.

# LOG INJECTION OF TRACE_ID
###############################################################

# This method creates an object with the current trace ID and
# helper methods to add the ID to logs for cross-referencing.
