# [Node] Change span limits in configurations

Hi,
For node js agent we want to limit the number of spans for standard tracing.
is there something apart from "span events max sample stored"metric

Thanks,
Roshita

Thanks for reaching out, I hope you are well.

I am not to familiar with this, however can you confirm if its a limit on traces or distributed traces. As I will need to do some investigation before being able to confirm.

Hi,

The limits is wrt to distributed traces

Thanks,
Roshita
