Follow these instructions to further validate your installation and troubleshoot any issues.

You configure your instrumentation to communicate with your Microsatellites by providing their location. If you are using a single Microsatellite, you provide the DNS name or IP address of that Microsatellite. For more than one, use the name or address of the load balancer you’ve deployed. Find out how to do that in the language-specific Quick Start guides.

By default, client libraries use secure connections. If you’ve configured your Microsatellites to use plainport connections, you must configure your tracer appropriately.
