Stacktrace configuration optionsedit

application_packagesedit

Used to determine whether a stack trace frame is an in-app frame or a library frame. Setting this option can also improve the startup time.

In order to be able to use the API annotations @CaptureTransaction and @CaptureSpan, it is required to set these options.

span_frames_min_durationedit

In its default settings, the APM agent will collect a stack trace with every recorded span. While this is very helpful to find the exact place in your code that causes the span, collecting this stack trace does have some overhead. When setting this option to -1, stack traces will be collected for all spans. Setting it to a positive value, e.g. 5ms, will limit stack trace collection to spans with durations equal or longer than the given value, e.g. 5 milliseconds.

To disable stack trace collection for spans completely, set the value to 0.

Supports the duration suffixes ms, s and m. Example: 5ms. The default unit for this option is ms
