TLDR Howard asked about setting an appropriate sample rate in SigNoz for their service. Srikanth advised that the default retention setting should be sufficient.

Hi there, I’m new to learning SigNoz for tracing our microservices in our project. I’m curious about how to set an appropriate sample rate in the SigNoz settings for my service, which involves trading exchanges with around 50 trading pairs and approximately half to one million trades per day.

There is a default retention setting of 7 days for traces. Half a million a day is decent but not high. You should be able to do without sampling fine.
