Elastic APM Architecture

The key component of Elastic APM is the APM Server, which receives performance data from applications, converts the data into Elasticsearch documents and saves these documents in Elasticsearch.

Applications can send performance data to the APM Server via the APM Agents. Some NetEye applications, like Tornado, can already send performance data to the APM Server, while other applications need first to be integrated with the APM Agents.
