Description of the problem including expected versus actual behavior. Please include screenshots (if relevant):

A problem which I've been dealing with is missing data for " Time spent by span type" graph in my staging environment. However, it works for development environment (the app sends events to the same APM server). I checked raw events in APM logs and they looks similar for both environments. I also checked that data is in the APM indexes for both environments.

This request that loads data from breakdown metrics returns empty objects


I have a single APM instance running in a Kubernetes cluster along with Elastic and Kibana instances. I instrumented my Rails/Rack application using elastic_apm gem with following configuration.

server_url: '' # fake ip
secret_token: ''
service_name: 'MyApp'
require ::File.expand_path('../config/environment', FILE)

# unicorn self-process killer
require 'unicorn/worker_killer'

# worker will be killed between 400 to 420 Mb
use Unicorn::WorkerKiller::Oom, 419430400, 450887680

builder = do
  map '/private/health-check' do
    run lambda{ |_| [200, { 'Content-Type' => 'text/plain' }, ['imalive']] }

  map '/track' do
    use ElasticAPM::Middleware
    # TODO: use Honeybadger::Rack::ErrorNotifier
    use ActionDispatch::RemoteIp, false

    # add addition request information
    use CW::SDK::Middleware::LoggerContext


  map '/' do
    run Rails.application

Also, my staging environment is running on a Kubernetes cluster and there is no significant difference in app environments. So I got stuck with it. Any ideas what else I can check?

Thanks in advance.

There is a screenshot bellow that shows there traces/spans but not data for breakdown metrics.

I also checked that breakdown_metrics is enabled.
