BlockScout supports tracing via Spandex. Each application has its own internally configured tracer.
To enable tracing, visit each application's
config/<env>.ex and change
disabled?: true to
disabled?: false. Do this for each application you'd like included in your trace data.
Currently, only Datadog is supported as a tracing backend, but more will be added soon.
If you would like to use DataDog, after enabling
"DATADOG_PORT" environment variables to the host/port that your Datadog agent is running on. For more information on Datadog and the Datadog agent, see the documentation.
If you want to use a different backend, remove the
Explorer.Application and follow any instructions provided in
Spandex for setting up that backend.
