Installation

None

Instana remotely instruments your Python web servers automatically via Instana AutoTrace™️. To configure which Python processes this applies to, see the Configuration page.

Manual Installation

If you wish to manually instrument your applications you can install the package with the following into the virtualenv, pipenv or container (hosted on pypi):

pip install instana

or to alternatively update an existing installation:

pip install -U instana

Activating Without Code Changes

The Instana package can then be activated without any code changes required by setting the following environment variable for your Python application:

export AUTOWRAPT_BOOTSTRAP=instana

This will cause the Instana Python package to automatically instrument your Python application. Once it finds the Instana host agent, it will begin to report Python metrics and distributed traces.

Activating via Import

Alternatively, if you prefer the really manual method, simply import the instana package inside of your Python application:

import instana

See also our detailed Installation document for additional information covering Django, Flask, End-user Monitoring (EUM) and more.

Documentation

You can find more documentation covering supported components and minimum versions in the Instana documentation portal.
