Installation

APM Installation instructions for Node.js

1. Install the agent

Follow the agent installation instructions for your environment.

2. Set up Profiling

Install the module with:

npm install raygun-apm --save

Profile requests by adding this require statement at the start of your main js file:

require('raygun-apm/http');

Set the RAYGUN_API_KEY environment variable. There are a number of ways to do this, but an example for Linux would be to run this command:

export RAYGUN_API_KEY=<YOUR RAYGUN API KEY>

3. Try it out

Start your Node.js app and send some requests. Traces will normally appear within Raygun within 5 minutes.

If you haven’t seen any traces after 10 minutes, take a look at our troubleshooting documentation.


See the raygun-apm module documentation for more information.
