Welcome to the AWS X-Ray SDK for Python!

This project is open sourced in Github. Please see: https://github.com/aws/aws-xray-sdk-python.

The AWS X-Ray service accepts application information in the form of trace segments. A trace segment represents the work done by a single machine as a part of the entire task or request. A set of trace segments which share the same trace ID form a trace. A trace represents a full unit of work completed for a single task or request.
