Some times the agents may be collecting excessive amounts of data, you may have a large number of transactions that are being registered. These transactions will show up on the APM GUI. Unfortunately, there's no direct switch/option on the Agent side to reduce the amount of data collected. In all cases, the agents will send the collected data to the APM server side. This data goes into the spark and mongodb databases which are not easily query-able. If you want to filter out some data and view only certain transactions, then you can use the Custom Views with Attribute details options on the APM server side to filter out some data.
This is how you can filter out data if you have excessive data showing up on the APM GUI from your agents. While there's no direct way, you can use the Attribute details tab in the APM GUI to customize and filter out the transaction data.
