Contrast service

The Contrast service is a stand-alone executable that enables communication between Contrast and multi-process dynamic language agents (like Ruby, Node.js and Python agents). It passes configuration options to the agent. It also aggregates and sends information from the agent back to Contrast.

It is compiled for various supported architectures:

  • Linux 64-bit

  • Macintosh 64-bit

  • Windows 64-bit

The service is packaged with the Ruby, Node.js and Python agents, and starts automatically when the instrumented application is started.
