How does alerting on custom plugin metrics work?

Hello.

In a situation where an ActiveGate plugin is needed to collect metrics from a device which can't run the OneAgent, how would the alerting setup look like?

Let's take a specific example... I have an ActiveGate plugin that runs a remote command on a device and reads back a 1 or 0 based on healthy/unhealthy. What is the recommended way to setup an alert so that I get a Problem opened if the plugin reads a 0? (e.g. would I have to create a Custom Device to store this data, then create a custom alert and find the device in the Host scope? or will my plugin show up under plugin events to configure anomaly detection? or is there a way to set this plugin's data as an indication of availability monitoring for this custom device?!)

Let me know if I'm not being clear enough 🙂

Thanks in advance!

Radu

Radu,

please take a look of this help page:

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/extend-dyna...

it describes how to push events from AG Plugins. That should help you solve problem.
