Instrumented AWS Lambda function using above go apmlambda agent module.
We are creating new transaction using 'apm.DefaultTracer.StartTransaction' function, which works fine. But we also get the default transaction in apm-server. So, we get 2 transactions for every invocation.
Is there any property to stop capturing default transactions. we tried the below properties, didn't work for us.
OR is there a way to capture & set labels on the default transaction. below function throws run time exception
var ctx context.Context // request context
tx := apm.TransactionFromContext(ctx)
apmlambda module does not support context propagation as is. We may extend it in the future to support that.
Since the context does not contain a transaction, calling
apm.TransactionFromContext(ctx), will return a nil
tx, thus causing a panic.
Ideally, we'd support context propagation in the
apmlambda module. In the meantime if you don't want the transactions that are tracing the lambda invocation and want to trace your application manually, you can opt to not import the
apmlambda module and just use the
hi @marclop , I tried with not importing apmlambda module, but did not make any difference. still getting the default auto generated transaction. can we set labels on this transaction ?
Our APM SDK (
go.elastic.co/apm) will not generate any transactions by default unless certain auto-instrumentation modules are imported (such as
Can you make sure you're not importing the module anywhere in your lambda codebase? If you're seeing the auto-instrumented lambda transactions, it means that the module is being imported somewhere.
Is this what are you referring to as "default auto generated transaction"?
Thanks @marclop . I found the apmlambda module was imported in one another location. After removing the module, auto-instrumented lambda transactions were not generated.
