Configuring the Tracetest Agent (Private Access)

The Tracetest Agent enables Tracetest to access your application under test and to ingest trace data from your OpenTelemetry Collector or tracing backend. It's a lightweight, dependency-free, agent that runs in your environment as an executable, Docker container, or in your Cloud Native infrastructure.

Start Tracetest Agent

Tracetest Agent connects to Tracetest via an API Key.
