- I am a newbie to Elastic APM, so I have some doubts about javaagent, I hope some friends could answer it.
- In a traditional SpringBoot project, there is usually a dependency such as
org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-actuatorto expose web and jmx endpoints, and at the same time, indicators can be sent to Elastic through programmatic methods.
- I want to know , if I delete the
org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-actuatorcomponent from the project, will Elastic Agent get the same order of magnitude data or less? And
will the project's JVM metrics information be hidden as this dependency
Hi and thanks for your question. You won't lose any information that you see in the curated APM UI in Kibana, such as JVM metrics. However, if I remember correctly, actuator also adds some micrometer metrics. The Java agent will auto-detect micrometer and ship all metrics to Elasticsearch so that you can build custom dashboards with them. See Metrics | APM Java Agent Reference [1.x] | Elastic for more details.
