Tracing Overview

Tracing is a powerful tool for understanding the behavior of your LLM application. LangSmith has best-in-class tracing capabilities, regardless of whether or not you are using LangChain.

Tracing can help you track down issues like:

  • An unexpected end result
  • Why an agent is looping
  • Why a chain was slower than expected
  • How many tokens an agent used at each step

To get started, check out the Quick Start Guide.

After that, peruse the Concepts Section to better understand the different components involved with tracing.
