Ruby & ROR & sdk instrumentation

Hello community.

May be anybody have experience with RoR & Ruby monitoring.

in blog described about C SDK and language bindings ruby to C.

I wrote simple script (simple webrequest to web server), initialized OneAgent SDK. (it was simple)

But i have no idea how to initialize & instrumenting outgoing web requests.

Because, FFI (lib to convert Ruby -> to -> C) rises errors with "onesdk_outgoingwebrequesttracer_create".

Other language bindings don't approach.

May be someone can share example, how integrate OneAgent SDK for C and Ruby on Rails App.

In some case, i can imagine that it is not possible at all for RoR.

There are many projects where Ruby is used, why there are no roadmap & futures & plans for development of SDK for Ruby and other native?

Hi Alexander,

we see now and then some requests for Ruby full blown support but not
enough yet to build a solid business case for official support. Supporting a new
language is not “just” about developing a new agent, but also having all the
resources to test it, maintain it and support it in the long time. As there's a lot of things we want to work on, we need to be careful with our resources.

That's why we think the OneAgent SDK is a good compromise to enable our users to support additional frameworks and technologies.

Back to your problem: feel free to send me your sample project per mail ( and we will take a look.

Maybe a bit late to the conversation, but I wanted to mention it for future reference. Our engineers have produced a very basic, not complete and not supported sample of a Ruby binding:

This is only intended as a starting point for those wanting to integrate the OneAgent SDK for C/C++ with Ruby, there's definitively more work involved to fully integrate with a Ruby application.
