Learn how to install and tune on-premise Lightstep Satellites.
Lightstep uses *Satellites* to collect 100% of the performance data that your tracing instrumentation generates. Satellites collect spans generated by instrumented clients and servers, and then process and temporarily store that data during trace assembly.
Lightstep Satellites are straightforward to deploy using a Docker image, AWS/AMI, or a Debian package.
Test that your Lightstep Satellites are installed and configured correctly to send spans.
