Infrastructure Map too slow

Our Instana has a lot of agents and the Infrastructure Map is not usable. It takes ages to load. We would like to have a solution to this problem, what about having a filter which let us show less agents in the Infrastructure Map? With such a filter we could have a smaller amount of agents displayed, and we could use again the infrastructure map.

    hi, the customer wants to know how many agents are reporting to the Instana backend at a given time. And maybe collect some more informations about them.

    In this moment this can't be achieved from any place. the infra map is unusable when the number of agents gets too big, and the same happens if you go to settings/agents.

    The api is really fast! There is something wrong in the UI if it takes so much time. Feel free to slack for a live overview of the problem.

    Hi Carlo and Jens,
    could you describe what an acceptable load time would be for your main uses cases?
    Could you also describe how you currently use the Infra Map are in your problem resolution workflow?
