Is it possible to export timeseries of Synthetic browser monitor?

Hi All,

I am considering about Synthetic alert notification.

Dynatrace can not notify the synthetic alert only by one threshold violation.

(This function is changed form Classic Synthetic. And I request as RFE: https://answers.dynatrace.com/idea/225021/view.html.)


Now I think I want to notify with external method. If I can export the synthetic timeseries with Dynatrace API, I can do that.


So, Is it possible to export the timeseries of synthtic browser monitor?

Hi Yasuo,

Of course you can, please see the new metrics API endpoint.

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/extend-dynatrace/dynatrace-api/environment-api/metric/get-all...

You just have select the synthetic metrics.

Best greetings,

Wolfgang


Hi Wolfgang,

Thank you for your reply. I will check the Metric API.

But please wait with the external alerting until next week as we are introducing a new custom event and alert feature that allows you to alert on all synthetic metrics. So I guess that will solve your use-case without exporting the metrics.

Best greetings,

Wolfgang

See a preview screenshot here:


Thank you!!, Wolfgang.

I will check the alerting function!

Hi Wolfgang,

I checked new custom alert function. I understood the function can detect 1 threshold violation.

But the alert mail is too slow. The alert mail is send after about 8 min of detection.

So is it possible to change the timing of alert mail?

The flow is the followings.

- Alert detect at 14:19(JST) = 05:19(UTC)


- Alert mail was send at 14:26:58(JST) = 05:26:58(UTC)(from mail header info)


Support team say the alert detect check function waits 5 min for one more synthetic measure and about 2 min for thinking to alert.
Why the wait time is need? And is it possible to change quick mailing process?
