Components supported by the Node.js Library

This topic applies to version 14 of the Node.js Library. If you are using an earlier version, see Components supported by the Node.js Library (legacy).

Verify the following to ensure the library can collect and transmit data:

  • The platform where your APM library will be installed is supported.

  • Your firewall configuration permits TCP/HTTPS/TLS outbound connections to (where xx-yy is determined by the URL you use to access SolarWinds Observability, described in Data centers and endpoint URIs) using port 443. See Firewall or access control requirements.

    If your firewall or access control requirements do not allow such connections, configure the library to send data through a proxy.

We currently officially support Node.js 16, 18 and 20. Our policy is to support all LTS releases up to one year after their end of life. SolarWinds highly recommends using an up-to-date Node.js version and staying up to date with its release and support policy.

Only Linux is supported. Note that glibc version 2.27 or higher is required on GNU C Library-based systems such as Amazon Linux 2, CentOS, Debian, and Ubuntu.

The Node.js Library loads a broad set of OTel instrumentations by default, which target the components listed in this Module Compatibility table.
