Since it gathers a lot of data - it gathers data every second - you should definitely have a lot of disk space around to store all that data. If you are an on-prem customer it shouldn't be an issue. You could just delete the Elasticsearch indexes and you should be good to go. If you want to store APM data long-term, it's not easily configurable. I didn't play around a lot with that aspect of it. We didn't hit disk usage limits, except once for a high-traffic site. The more traffic that you have, obviously, it keeps gathering a greater amount of data. That can, possibly, cause issues with disk space. But if you have a lot of storage then that shouldn't be an issue. View full review »
