99.9 / Custom percentiles?

In the Elastic APM dashboard latencies can be displayed as average, 95 percentile or 99 percentile:

Additionally, we would like to be able to display the 99.9 percentile and use that in SLOs / alerts as well. Can this be configured?

Hi @georgms,

APM does not handle custom percentiles. But from the SLO standpoint, you can create one based on APM latency, and specify the latency in ms that correspond to the service's 99.9th percentile.
