Set up Beyla

There are different options to set up and run Beyla:

  1. As a standalone Linux process.
  2. With Docker to instrument a process running in a container.
  3. As a Kubernetes DaemonSet or as a sidecar container

For information on configuration options and data export modes, see the Configure Beyla documentation.

Note: If you will be using Beyla to generate traces, please make sure you’ve read our documentation section on configuring the Routes Decorator. Since Beyla is auto-instrumenting your application without any special language level support, configuring the low cardinality routes decorator is very important for optimal results.
