Distributed Tracing, Metrics and Context Propagation for application running on the JVM

Version Matrix


Discord Maven Central

Kamon is a set of tools for instrumenting applications running on the JVM. The best way to get started is to go to our official Get Started Page and start instrumenting your applications right away! There you will also find guides and reference documentation for the core APIs, instrumentation and reporting modules.

Importing the project into Intellij IDEA

This project has a library dependency on a subproject of itself (kamon-tapir). As a result of that, if you just clone this project and open it in IDEA, it will fail to import it. First, run sbt +kamon-tapir/publishLocal from the console, and then IDEA will be able to import the project.

Why is this necessary?

Among our instrumented libraries is Tapir, which is also the only library we instrument that does not have a scala 2.11 version. In order to be able to cross publish kamon-bundle to all scala versions, while excluding kamon-tapir from the 2.11 bundle, we had to define kamon-tapir as a library dependency of kamon-bundle (instead of as a subproject).
