Using the µAPM User Interface

SignalFx µAPM provides three main pages for viewing your services, operations, traces, and spans. These pages are all available by hovering over µAPM on the navigation bar.

  • The Services page provides a “big picture” overview of your environment.

  • The Traces page lets you “slice and dice” your trace data to narrow in on traces that can help you find and diagnose problems in your code.

  • The View a trace page lets you navigate through spans in an individual trace to find the precise area where there may be problems in your code.

Additionally, SignalFx provides a built-in dashboard group with dashboards that display information about specified services and endpoints.
