APM Server version:
- APM 7.3.2
APM Agent language and version:
- Python Flask 4.2.2
Original install method (e.g. download page, yum, deb, from source, etc.) and version:
- Provided by Elastic Cloud subscription
Fresh install or upgraded from another version?
- Upgraded from 7.1.1
- We are using the Elastic Cloud services, so we are not running our stack locally.
I receive a lot of transactions that check for /ping or /healthcheck of a URL that doesn't exist anymore. I receive a lot of these every day and I just want to find a way to get rid of them.
Another question that I have is what if I reduce the transaction sample rate, do APM store transactions somewhere and then update them all together or do I lose access to those transactions? Currently, we are monitoring our website using APM so we can better understand customer's behaviors/issues, and my concern is that I might lose access to this information.
- Our plan is to reduce the data that we receive from APM, and only gather the data that is useful to us. Using this approach can help us reduce the amount of data which ultimately reduces our shards and can contribute to the maintenance of our cluster.
I appreciate any feedback or resources that you might have, feel free to ask for more information if you think there is missing detail in this post.
