Using the µAPM User Interface 🔗

SignalFx µAPM provides three main pages for viewing your services, operations, traces, and spans. These pages are all available by hovering over µAPM on the navigation bar.

  • The Services page provides a “big picture” overview of your environment.

  • The Traces page lets you “slice and dice” your trace data to narrow in on traces that can help you find and diagnose problems in your code.

  • The View a trace page lets you navigate through spans in an individual trace to find the precise area where there may be problems in your code.

Additionally, SignalFx provides a built-in dashboard group with dashboards that display information about specified services and endpoints, and another dashboard group with dashboards that display information about the SignalFx Smart Gateway.
