Tracing Overview

What is distributed tracing

Distributed tracing is a way to collect information about how the components of your applications work with one another to serve end-user request. Distributed-tracing data is collected by tracers, which are add-ons to your applications that collect the distributed tracing data and send them to a backend for processing, querying, storing alerting and visualizing.

The Transactions in Lumigo are generated from distributed-tracing data, as well as the System Map and the data can be queries via the Explore View.
