Getting started with X-Ray - AWS X-Ray

Getting started with X-Ray

To get started with AWS X-Ray:

  • Launch a sample application that is already instrumented to generate trace data. In a few minutes, you can launch the sample app, generate traffic, send segments to X-Ray, and view a service map and traces in the AWS Management Console.

  • Learn how to instrument your application, including using the X-Ray SDKs or the AWS Distro for OpenTelemetry to send trace data to X-Ray.

  • Explore other AWS services that are integrated with X-Ray, including sampling and adding headers to incoming requests, running the X-Ray daemon, and automatically sending trace data to X-Ray.

  • Use the X-Ray API, which provides access to all X-Ray functionality through the AWS SDK, AWS Command Line Interface, or directly over HTTPS.
