This release of the Python agent adds a new configuration option that allows users to disable capturing package and version information at agent startup.
- Add new configuration option
package_reporting.enabled. This option allows users to disable capturing package and version information at agent startup. On some applications with a high number of packages some users were seeing a spike in CPU usage. Disabling this setting provides a workaround for that issue.
We recommend updating to the latest agent version as soon as it's available. If you can't upgrade to the latest version, update your agents to a version no more than 90 days old. Read more about keeping agents up to date.
See the New Relic Python agent EOL policy for information about agent releases and support dates.
