Getting started with Epsagon is a three-step process:

  2. Integrate your environment
  3. Trace your application

Epsagon specializes in Integrating all 3 pillars of observability under the same dashboard: metrics, traces, and logs.


Setup recommendation

While some of the steps are optional, it is highly recommended to complete all of them in order to gain full observability into your stack and application.

The following environments are supported:

Tracing the application

Tracing helps you understand the performance of your application, by granting visibility to your end-to-end calls and requests.

Using Epsagon's automated tracing, you can see every call made, capture exceptions, and understand the performance of your endpoints. Epsagon also captures the payloads from the network calls (e.g. headers, body, params, and more) helping you troubleshoot issues much faster:
