APM Server - split indices by applications


We are trying to use ES + Kibana + APM Server for monitoring of few our applications (Ruby/Rails)

And I have a questions about data managing and storage separately for our Apps:

  • is it possible to have different indices for each of app which are sending data to APM?
  • how I can delete all APM data for one of my App projects?

You certainly can: you can control the index name by configuring output.elasticsearch.indices in apm-server.yml. You could, for example, include %{[service.name]} in the index format string.

To delete the APM data, you can either delete the Elasticsearch indices, or run an Elasticsearch delete by query to just delete the documents without deleting the indices.
