Overview

This class allows the current transaction to be passed to a Thread so that nested segments can be created from the operations performed within the Thread's block. To have the New Relic Ruby agent automatically trace all of your applications threads, enable the instrumentation.thread.tracing configuration option in your newrelic.yml.

Note: disabling the configuration option instrumentation.thread while using this class can cause incorrectly nested spans.
