What dictates Response Size being captured as metadata or not?

How does Dynatrace decide to capture Response Size as metadata or not?

My thought is that it likely will be dependent on the underlying technology or simply that the size isn't being sent in the headers as it is for EasyTravel.


one way you could verify here is to check the response payload and header on a test call or something to see if that information is contained within it. Since Dynatrace doesn't see it for your /repos/.../ then it very likely just does not exist there.

The response size is not always available in the HTTP headers. One such case is when the content is compressed, and typically delivered in "chunks". I can imagine that Dynatrace will not count all those chunks. The corresponding HTTP header is:

Transfer-Encoding: chunked

I am also interested in this topic.

I think that "Resopnse header size" and "Response body size" are no longer displayed in recent versions. Has anyone seen "Resopnse header size" or "Response body size" displayed?

Interesting, I also searched for it in the original place where the above screenshot was taken and didn't find it . Bug? Taken away?
