Feature Idea: Custom hostname configuration in newrelic.config



For elastic-scaling instances (eg. AWS Elastic Beanstalk), the hostnames can be (is) mangled and required reboot to take into effect. You are able to modify the Infrastructure client to send a different hostname, can the same be brought into the .NET (and .NET Core) agent so that we can match a proper, friendly name in the APM?

There is a previous thread that others have talked about the same issue:
