Important Changes

  • New Performance APIs
    • feat: Update span performance API names (#8971)
    • feat(core): Introduce startSpanManual (#8913)

This release introduces a new set of top level APIs for the Performance Monitoring SDKs. These aim to simplify creating spans and reduce the boilerplate needed for performance instrumentation. The three new methods introduced are Sentry.startSpan, Sentry.startInactiveSpan, and Sentry.startSpanManual. These methods are available in the browser and node SDKs.

Sentry.startSpan wraps a callback in a span. The span is automatically finished when the callback returns. This is the recommended way to create spans.

// Start a span that tracks the duration of expensiveFunction
const result = Sentry.startSpan({ name: 'important function' }, () => {
  return expensiveFunction();

// You can also mutate the span wrapping the callback to set data or status
Sentry.startSpan({ name: 'important function' }, (span) => {
  // span is undefined if performance monitoring is turned off or if
  // the span was not sampled. This is done to reduce overhead.
  span?.setData('version', '1.0.0');
  return expensiveFunction();

If you don't want the span to finish when the callback returns, use Sentry.startSpanManual to control when the span is finished. This is useful for event emitters or similar.

// Start a span that tracks the duration of middleware
function middleware(_req, res, next) {
  return Sentry.startSpanManual({ name: 'middleware' }, (span, finish) => {
    res.once('finish', () => {
    return next();

Sentry.startSpan and Sentry.startSpanManual create a span and make it active for the duration of the callback. Any spans created while this active span is running will be added as a child span to it. If you want to create a span without making it active, use Sentry.startInactiveSpan. This is useful for creating parallel spans that are not related to each other.

const span1 = Sentry.startInactiveSpan({ name: 'span1' });


const span2 = Sentry.startInactiveSpan({ name: 'span2' });


const span3 = Sentry.startInactiveSpan({ name: 'span3' });
