Usage

The instana gem is a zero configuration tool that will automatically collect key metrics and distributed traces from your Ruby processes. Just install and go.

Configuration

Although the gem has no configuration required for out of the box metrics and tracing, components can be configured if needed. See our Configuration page.

Tracing

This Ruby gem provides a simple API for tracing and also supports OpenTracing. See the Ruby Tracing SDK and OpenTracing pages for details.

Documentation

You can find more documentation covering supported components and minimum versions in the Instana documentation portal.

Want End User Monitoring (EUM)?

Instana provides deep end user monitoring that links server side traces with browser events to give you a complete view from server to browser.

See the End User Monitoring page for more information.

Development

After checking out the repo, run bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run rake test to run the tests. You can also run bundle exec rake console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.

To install this gem onto your local machine, run bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in lib/instana/version.rb, and then run bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the .gem file to rubygems.org.
