The richness and volume of APM data provides unique insights into your applications, but it can also mean higher costs and more noise when analyzing data. There are a couple strategies you can use to reduce your data usage while continuing to get the full value of APM data. Read more about these strategies:
- Transaction sampling: Reduce data storage, costs, and noise by ingesting only a percentage of all traces that you can extrapolate from in your analysis.
- Compress spans: Compress similar or identical spans to reduce storage overhead, processing power needed, and clutter in the Applications UI.
- Stacktrace collection: Reduce the stacktrace information collected by your APM agents.
