Trace Ingestion

Trace Journey: Ingestion

With APM, both the ingestion of traces as well as the retention of those traces for 15 days are fully customizable.

To track or monitor your volume of ingested and indexed data, see Usage Metrics.

Ingestion mechanisms

Set up tracing to gain end-to-end visibility into your applications with fine-grained ingestion configuration. Make sure to capture complete traces, including all error and high-latency traces to never miss performance issues such as an application outage or an unresponsive service.
