Hi, thanks for reaching out :slight_smile:

No, Elastic APM currently isn't a good fit for monitoring Windows applications unfortunately.

Out-of-the-box, Elastic APM can currently monitor the following types of applications:

Backend services written in:

  • Node.js
  • Python
  • Ruby
  • Java (in beta)
  • Go (in beta)

Frontend apps written in:

  • JavaScript

The latter is normally used to monitor "single page websites", but can mostly be adapted to any kind of frontend website monitoring where JavaScript is involved.

We do however have an API with which you can use to implement your own monitoring agent. This would allow you to write an agent to monitor Windows applications - but it's a pretty technical feat, so it's not something we normally recommend :sweat_smile:(also bear in mind that we're currently in the processes of changing the API, so now might not be a good time to write new code that talks to the old API).
