You can use the blacklist feature on the APM settings page to blacklist a namespace, class name or method.
This feature is useful because it helps to filter out unwanted data from captured traces, e.g. short running but frequently called helper functions which are already performant, but clog up captured trace data due to being regularly called.
There is no limit to the blacklist - you can add as many as you’d like.
Adding blacklist items
Blacklist items must be added in the following format:
Namespace.Class::Method. For example, given a method in your code called
MyNamespace.RaygunUtilities.Foo(), the following rules will match:
Given the method
MyNamespace.RaygunUtilities.Bar() and the rules above, only the first two rules would match.
Once you’ve added items to the blacklist, your web service app pool will need to be restarted for the changes to take effect.
note: This feature is for namespaces, classnames and methods only with no wildcard support.
