Instrumenting Node.js Apps with Elastic APM

Identifying, debugging, and fixing Node.js production performance issues is difficult. Learn about Node.js instrumentation and how Elastic APM can help. See how to improve error monitoring and how to automatically instrument incoming HTTP requests, database queries, etc.

We'll also cover more advanced topics like how to minimize instrumentation overhead, how to add valuable metadata to the collected metrics to ease debugging, and how to add custom watchers to instrument any part of your codebase.
