I am trying to use the APM Server Intake API to monitor a high loaded PHP service which runs on many machines
It comes out, that a POST request to APM Server takes from 18ms to 80ms in average, which increases the PHP app response time significantly
Is there any method to send spans data to APM Server via UDP for example?
The last idea I came up with is to make an intermediary service which will listen an UDP port, receive and buffer APM data, and then just proxy it to APM Server via it's standard Intake API
But if there is an opportunity to send APM data via UDP by standard Elastic means it would be great! (maybe use Beats with UDP input like a proxy)
Thanks a lot!
