PHP Agent

The PHP agent provides automatic tracing and metrics for PHP-based applications, covering a variety of popular frameworks and libraries out of the box.

Getting Started

Note

Please check that your platform and application components are supported.

To get up and running with APM, you’ll install the AppOptics PHP extension. After that, a restart of your web server or PHP process will load the agent and automatically begin reporting data.

Custom Instrumentation

Custom instrumentation can be used to get extra application-specific visibility in AppOptics, both adding custom spans for distributed tracing and adding custom timers/counters for metric reporting and alerting. Check out the SDK.

Code Profiling

Code profiling provides extra insight into code level execution time that is otherwise not captured by auto-instrumentation. See code profiling and the PHP-specific details for more on this feature, available starting with agent version 3.4.0.
