Question:
We are running the ASM integration field pack agent v1.4.1 with APM 10.0 and we are getting the following error in the integration agent logs: 10/17/18 06:05:58 PM EDT [WARN] [IntroscopeAgent.Agent] Absolute metric clamp of 50000 reached, no more metrics can be created. Instrumentation on this application should be reduced. Need to see what options we have to increase the clamp limit so that we can bring in metrics for all of our ASM monitors.
Environment:
This will work for any version of the ASM Field Pack Integration Agent.
Answer:
Modify the AppSyntheticMonitor.properties file and add the following property.  Set the value to double the clamp amount given in your log message.  Also this requires a restart, this is not a hot config property.
