I have a webserver running a Django application and have started to use the Elastic APM since Opbeat was shut down. I'm currently only doing instrumentation and I'm experiencing high CPU loads. I used Opbeat before migrating to Elastic APM without experiencing CPU loads as high as with Elastic APM.
The only configuration I've done is to setup SECRET_TOKEN, SERVER_URL, SERVICE_VERSION and SERVICE_NAME in the ELASTIC_APM setting in Django settings.
I know about the transaction sample rate setting and it would presumably lower the CPU load but I wouldn't expect Elastic APM to perform that different from Opbeat.
Do you have any suggestions to what I might have misconfigured or can you help me debug this issue in any way?
