What is the difference between APM Server and APM Integration?
They serve the same purpose to collect the APM data from the source APM agents (traces, metrics etc) do a little but of processing and forward to Elasticsearch.
APM Sever is a standalone version of the APM Server
APM Integration is basically the APM Server installed as an integration within an Elastic Agent
And elastic agent is just a daemon that manages APM Server instance?
That is a fair way to think of it ... I think of it as a "Managing Daemon" that manages the integrations. It can manage any of the 300+ integrations... the APM server is just a specific integration that happens to have the same purpose / capabilities of the Stand Alone APM Server.
