Client Libraries

These libraries are not required for applications running on the App Engine standard environment, which are traced automatically.

Customers tracing applications on VMs or containers (including Compute Engine, App Engine flexible environment, Kubernetes Engine, and those running with other cloud providers or on-premises) should use these libraries to submit traces to the service.

Across all languages, Google is transitioning to make use of OpenCensus, a set of open source tracing and stats instrumentation libraries that work with multiple backends.

Traces can also be received from Zipkin tracers via the Stackdriver Trace Zipkin Collector
