Python Agent

The Python agent provides automatic tracing and metrics for Python-based applications. For new features, fixed issues, and updated components, see the Python Agent Release Notes.

Get started

Ensure that your platform and application components are supported.

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

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.

When the APM Integrated Experience is enabled, AppOptics shares a common navigation and enhanced feature set with the other integrated experiences' products. How you navigate the product and access its features may vary from these instructions. For more information, go to the APM Integrated Experience documentation.
