The following content pertains to the legacy AppOptics Nodejs Agent.
AppOptics agents are no long receiving updates. The new SolarWinds Observability libraries can send APM data in AppOptics and are regularly updated with new features and improvements. If you are still relying on the AppOptics agents and your components are supported by the new libraries, consider transitioning to the SolarWinds Observability libraries for your APM needs. For more information about the benefits of migrating to the SolarWinds Observability libraries. Alternatively, you can use SolarWinds Observability as your primary APM solution.
If you have already transitioned to the new SolarWinds Observability Nodejs Library, see the SolarWinds Nodejs Library documentation for information.
SolarWinds Observability libraries are not compatible with AppOptics agents. Do not use a mix of SolarWinds Observability libraries and AppOptics agents to instrument applications that are part of a distributed trace.
The appoptics-apm package provides automatic tracing and metrics for Node.js applications. For new features, fixed issues, and updated components, see the Node.js Agent (legacy) Release Notes.
To get up and running with APM, you'll install and enable the AppOptics Node.js Agent. After that, a restart of the application will load the agent and automatically begin reporting data.
If you have code or a library that is not on the platform support list, use our SDK to customize.
Navigation Notice: When the APM Integrated Experience is enabled, AppOptics shares a common navigation and enhanced feature set with other integrated experience products. How you navigate AppOptics and access its features may vary from these instructions.
