Transport backends

The transport backend category summarizes all backends used to support various technical environments or optimizations. Currently there are the following backends:

Thin backend
Provides an efficient IPC mechanism to deliver ARM data from the instrumented application to an ARM data collection process (armdraind) running on the same host of the application.
TCP backend
Provides the functionality to deliver ARM data through TCP to another process on a different host (armtcpd)
Thread backend
Used in multi-threaded applications. This backend is always embedded in the instrumented application.
Null backend
Does not capture any ARM data at all.
