Is there any way to monitor GoLang?

Are there any way to monitor GoLang without having to touch source code?

We have parts of our application that is written in GO Applications (GoLang) as well as 3rd party tools that are written in GoLang. I've been scouring the forums (https://www.dynatrace.com/blog/monitoring-go-applications-dynatrace/) to see if there's any documentation on how to, but been unsuccessful.

hi Quincy,

so far it has only been possible to monitor Go based applications with Dynatrace via source code instrumentation based on the ADK (as described in the article you posted).

currently we're working on a "real" Go Agent which works also without source code modifications. it's still in an early stage, but you can already read about it here:

however, the downside of this: currently it's only planned for Dynatrace, so there's no plan right now to have it on AppMon, too.

HTH, Christian

I was told that GoLang support was going in AppMon 7.2. This isn't the case?
