Below you can see a pseudo example configuration file with comments regarding style conventions that inspectIT Ocelot's default configuration follows. They might help you with making your configurations easy to read and understand.
If you are using the inspectIT Ocelot configuration server to write and/or manage your configurations, also consider the guidelines for its Syntax Highlighter.
Similarly, for writing documentation into your configurations see the section Configuration Docs.
inspectit: instrumentation: actions: # Any keys that are not predetermined by the underlying Java objects, # for example names of instrumentation objects, should be in single quotes. # The keys itself should be written in snake case. # Furthermore, action names should always start with `a_`!
