I have an interesting question for you. I need to trigger an alert when an application process is started at a different time interval than it is scheduled for?
For example, if we assume that application process A is running usually from 8-10pm and one time it starts at 6pm can an alert be generated about this?
I think there is no straightforward way for this but you can try to test creating a metric event using PGI availability as a metric selector and threshold above 0% or by process count per process group and then you can create a maintenance window for this process to disable alerting during the time that it works and you can expand the maintenance window a little pit to avoid any false positive.
This is exactly the workaround I'm using, but unfortunately it is not perfect and can report erroneously in the event of some slowdowns. Thank you for the hint though.
I will be setting up a product Idea in this topic - maybe it will get the right recognition and such functionality will be added to DT.
