This module is a dependency of the agent and is installed by default when you install the agent.

Installation and Getting Started

This package is a dependency of the the Node.js Agent, and should not need to install it manually.

For more information, please see the agent installation guide and compatibility and requirements.

Our API and developer documentation for writing instrumentation will be of help. We particularly recommend the tutorials and various "shim" API documentation.


The module includes a suite of unit and functional tests which should be used to verify that your changes don't break existing functionality.

All tests are stored in tests/ and are written using Node-Tap with the extension .tap.js.

To run the full suite, run: npm test.

Individual test scripts include:

npm run unit
npm run versioned
