I have an environment where a lot of purepaths are being gathered. Since these are static objects, it doesn't make much sense having a purepath, but I might be missing something.
In this case it is worse because I'm being inflicted by ALR. For what I know, it's not possible to stop gathering Purepaths for static objects. Is this also correct?
You can use adaptive control but that will affect the entire environment. You can reduce the amount of produced traffic by excluding unimportant requests from capture; this is done with web request attributes and URL exclusion rules. This approach leaves more volume available for important requests.
Yes, I know about that possibility.
But I would have to make rules for GIF, PNG, JPG, JPEG, CSS, JS, EOT, WOFF, ICO, and probably some dozens more. You get the idea. Doesn't seem like an interesting approach. And, not sure if all these rules wouldn't also impact overhead on servers being monitored?
