We need to monitor the actual Dynatrace Managed Clusters. We are a 24/7 business and cannot rely on just the email or on our clients, to tell us when a cluster or node is down.
Is there a way that we can monitor this, maybe with the Splunk Integration? We just need to know whether the cluster is available or not & whether the nodes and gateways are available or not. We'd like to put this on a dashboard view so that our incident management teams can have the ability to view this quickly without having to sift through email alerts.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What we do is exec the actual status and "health" check from an external app running curl every 4 minutes. Alerting if the result is not RUNNING, for activegates and cluster. For cluster we also run the \launcher\dynatrace.sh status.
So the blog never made it to publication. But essentially, Managed Customers have the ability (With a Dynatrace One Service Subscription) to have a SaaS cluster that watches your Managed Cluster. Think of it as Dynatrace Monitoring Dynatrace.
Once created, Your SaaS Environment will look at your Managed Cluster as if it were a Monitored Application. This then gives you insight into the number of users using Dynatrace, the dashboards they are using, how long are they using the product, and all the other bells and whistles that you would expect while monitoring your core Business Apps.

Thanks for the post Chad. I am not completely sure, but I think the Service you mention is the Dynatrace One Premium Service Subscription. For now, I don´t think a SaaS cluster is GA for non-Premium, but definetely something we are working on.
@melissap , you can try using the splunk infrastructure app . This app can monitor the OS metrics of your managed cluster nodes and activegates (CPU/Memory/disk/uptime) and for dynatrace service health monitoring you can run the custom linux command in the same app.
