The usage of the Go sensor requires a minimal amount of coding in your Go application. Please refer to github.com/instana/go-sensor for detailed instructions on how to activate the Go sensor.
Please see this document on assuring that your instrumented applications can contact the Instana Host Agent.
Tracing in Go works based on the OpenTracing API, and the data those produce get “translated” into Instana through a tracer and sent to the Instana backend. See https://github.com/instana/go-sensor#opentracing for details.
