Getting started


Check that your platform is Supported.

Instrumentation for the ruby language and ruby on rails framework is provided as a gem called appoptics_apm. The appoptics_apm gem is hosted on RubyGems, making installation as simple as: gem install appoptics_apm.

Our ruby extension gets detailed insights out-of-the-box without any code modification. For a list of instrumented gems and components see platform support.

See install for installation instructions for Ruby and different frameworks like Rails, Sinatra, Padrino, and Grape.

Custom instrumentation

If you have code or a library that is not on the platform support list, use our SDK to customize.
