Getting started with Elastic Cloud Part 4: Setting up APM within a Python app from scratch

In this webinar, we give a brief introduction to what APM is and why it is useful. Then we quickly move into a demonstration of a troublesome Python Flask app and show how to include the Python APM agent. With the agent installed, we can then begin to understand why the application is being troublesome by viewing and discovering insights within the Kibana APM solution.

Highlights include:

  • Brief introduction to APM
  • Creating an Elastic Cloud cluster with an APM server
  • How to set up the Python APM agent within a Python Flask application
  • How to view and understand your APM data within Kibana
