How do I instrument .JS agents to report information points


How do I instrument .JS agents to report information points

Do the JS Agents have to be manually instrumented to report information points? When I try to add an information point the only options are Java, .NET, and PHP.

1. Why there is no option for JS to add information point?

2. How do I configure JS Agents to report all the information points?

Hi Emrul,


Yeah, the way we do this in Node.js is through the agent API: Specifically, there are two options:

addSnapshotData will just add a key value pair to each request snapshot that the agent takes, while the addAnalyticsData will work more like a data collector, providing metrics.


Please let us know if you have any issues.
