µAPM Instrumentation Guide

The SignalFx µAPM distributed tracing solution is designed to be instrumentation agnostic, supporting and ingesting a variety of popular open instrumentation libraries including OpenTracing, Zipkin and OpenCensus.

As long as the tracer sending spans to SignalFx uses the Zipkin v1 or v2 JSON wire format, or Jaeger’s Thrift wire format, SignalFx will accept spans irrespective of how they were instrumented. You can use one of the open libraries mentioned above, or a homegrown implementation.
