We use amazon ec2 with autoscaling (windows instances). By default (I believe) this makes for all the hostnames of the machines to be equal. Because of all the same hostnames we cannot filter on specific hosts in APM, which is a very handy feature. I thought by reading the documentation it would be possible to do this by setting the environment variable “NEW_RELIC_PROCESS_HOST_DISPLAY_NAME”, but in this topic it was explained that that is currently not how it works.
In the same topic i understand that a feature-request was made, so i hope to hear from you if/when you’re planning to implement this.
New Relic Edit
- I want this too
- I have more info to share (reply below)
