Now that you’re up and running with Elastic APM, you may want to adjust some configuration settings. Luckily, there are many different ways to tweak and tune the Elastic ecosystem to adapt it to your needs.

APM agents have a number of configuration options that allow you to fine tune things like environment names, sampling rates, instrumentations, metrics, and more.

A select number of configuration options can be changed directly in Kibana, without needing to redeploy the Agent. See Agent configuration in Kibana for more information.
