New Relic's official Koa framework instrumentation for use with the New Relic Node.js agent.
This module is a dependency of the agent and is installed by default when you install the agent.
Typically, most users use the version auto-installed by the agent. You can see agent install instructions here.
In some cases, installing a specific version is ideal. For example, new features or major changes might be released via a major version update to this module, prior to inclusion in the main New Relic Node.js Agent.
npm install @newrelic/koa
// index.js require('@newrelic/koa')
For more information, please see the agent installation guide.
Our API and developer documentation for writing instrumentation will be of help. We particularly recommend the tutorials and various "shim" API documentation.
In addition to the Koa framework, we support additional specific routing modules.
Supported Routing Modules
For more information, please see the agent compatibility and requirements.
The module includes a suite of unit and functional tests which should be used to verify that your changes don't break existing functionality.
All tests are stored in
tests/ and are written using
Tap with the extension
To run the full suite, run:
Individual test scripts include:
