AIX host monitoring - CPU Usage - problem detection


Hi nice community members,

I'm a little bit ashamed of asking this question but: does Dynatrace opens a problem if CPU usage is more than 95% for a 3 out of 5 minute interval for an AIX host?

PS my case and AIX host had 100% of cpu usage for a all morning /agent installed in infrastructure-only / standard anomaly detection / no problem open


best regards to everyone



That would depend on your anomaly detection settings for your AIX Hosts. Check out on of your AIX hosts and click settings>Anomaly detection. You can have CPU set for Auto (AI Detected) or set a custom Threshold. 




Yeah, I was giving for granted that this was the standard config. But no problem opened and asked on the support chat.


They told me : "it appears that actually this is a limitation in Dynatrace. As this is a feature that is currently unavailable, I would recommend posting an idea for this feature"

So before I post an idea I really need to be sure that this is the case (no CPU usage is raised for AIX system)
