Best way to pause data collection during load testing?

We are about to load test our app. To avoid thousands of test events being ingested, we need to pause data collection during the tests. Any ideas as to the best way to do this?

  • Hey Jim Ingle - I noticed that this is a similar question to the one you've submitted directly to our team. Lets keep working through that thread to discuss possible options. For others interested in this same question, there is not currently a feature in Segment to pause data collection. To discuss your specific scenario, feel free to reach out directly and we can help discuss. Thank you!

  • Emily I have a similar question, although I am more interested in identifying and ignoring the load test traffic vs turning off the data collection. 

    1. Is there any way to see the thread or highlights from the thread with Jim Ingle ?

    2. Should I submit a separate question about ignoring / filtering load test traffic?
