Seperation of batch trace with large call volume into multiple traces

Currently you cannot separate/split the number of traces as the default criteria cannot be changed.

    Hi Christian,

    thanks for composing this idea! Actually we are close to release a new feature which will support large traces in the current Trace Detail View. It will be available for backends with version 245 and upwards.

    Once you updated your backend to 245+, we can enable the feature for you and discuss your feedback.

    In case the new approach of dealing with large traces is not sufficient, please revisit the idea of splittong a trace and create a new idea.

    For now, I will set this to "Not under consideration" and await your feedback once your on-prem instance is up to date.

    Best regards & thanks again.
