AppOptics APM libraries, instrumentation, and web middleware components for WSGI, Django, and Tornado.
The ‘appoptics_apm’ module provides automatic instrumentation and metrics/tracing SDK hooks for use with AppOptics.
The appoptics_apm module provides middleware and other instrumentation for popular web frameworks such as Django, Tornado, Pyramid, and WSGI, as well as commonly used libraries like SQLAlchemy, httplib, redis, memcached. Read more at our full documentation.
The Python instrumentation for AppOptics uses a module named appoptics_apm, which is distributed via pypi.
pip install appoptics_apm
Alternately, you can use this repository to build a local copy.
See our documentation on configuring the python instrumentation.
To upgrade an existing installation, you simply need to run:
pip install --upgrade appoptics_apm
Running the Tests
The test suite depends on the presence of several database and cache servers; consequently, the easiest way to get up and running is to use the included Dockerfile and run_docker_dev.sh.
To build the development container image:
docker build -f Dockerfile -t ptdev:py27 .
Then run an interactive shell to run test suite:
To run tests, in the container’s shell, against the current version of Python:
To run tests, in the container’s shell, against the various versions of Python:
docker-compose build && docker-compose up
Test directory layout
Tests in test/unit are actually functional tests; naming is for historic reasons. Tests in test/manual are for manual verification of certain behaviors.

You are obviously a person of great sense and intelligence. We happily appreciate all contributions to the appoptics_apm module whether it is documentation, a bug fix, new instrumentation for a library or framework or anything else we haven’t thought of.
We welcome you to send us PRs. We also humbly request that any new instrumentation submissions have corresponding tests that accompany them. This way we don’t break any of your additions when we (and others) make changes after the fact.
We have made a large effort to expose as much technical information as possible to assist developers wishing to contribute to the AppOptics module. Below are the three major sources for information and help for developers:
- The AppOptics Knowledge Base has a large collection of technical articles or, if needed, you can submit a support request directly to the team.
If you have any questions or ideas, don’t hesitate to contact us anytime.
