Customizing App Name with Istio Processor

TLDR Romil asked how to customize an app's name using a processor. Pranay suggested using OTEL_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTES, and Romil confirmed it could be overridden using Istio's meshConfig.

This is the application name which you pass. Should be possible to customise it by passing a service OTEL_RESOURCE_ATTRIBUTES=service.name=<app_name> attribute

Pranay if the reporting is coming from istio, i should be able to override using: ```spec: meshConfig: enableTracing: true defaultConfig: tracing: custom_tags: service: name: <new name>```
