Setup custom alert for all services

Is there a way to setup custom alerts for all services. I found that its possible to setup a custom alert for 'All Hosts'. Could not see a way to do this for 'All services'. Is there a way to do this?

Hi,

We did have that some time ago but we did remove the 'All' option. Its a very dangerous setting in large environments.

Also the benefit is not really clear as those services are completely different in terms of response times and error rates and an 'all' threshold in most cases does not make much sense.

What would you like to do?

Best regards,

Wolfgang

What I wanted to do was to just have a notification sent anytime an error (HTTP / Server side error) was detected for any service. As you said above it probably would not make sense to have such an alert in large environments. In our case, it's nice to have an alert that an error was detected on a service / multiple services.

Similarly it would have been nice to have a general error metric that stands for any kind of error. Users can choose this if they want to track all errors (instead of having four categories such as Client side, Server side, HTTP 4xx, HTTP 5xx). So, basically it could easily cover the use case "For any error detected on any service let me know". Based on your answer, I think my only option is to set it up manually for each service.

Yes at the moment you have to be more specific and set it either on service level or on key transaction level.

Hi all!

The thing is client got alert after 9 minutes when one process got connectivity rate 0%. Problem here that ops team were notified than something isn't working by managers before Dynatrace did it. I know we have sliding 5 and 15 minutes interval, but maybe there is an option to get notification much faster.

@Vlad S. Why did'nt you got a much faster service related alert? We are alerting not necessarily on 5 min delay, if your service has high traffic and you get an increased error rate you will receive the alert within a minute instead of 5 minutes.


My observation is 9 minutes delay almost on each Problem. Failure rate, decrease connectivity rate etc.

9 minutes for Slack alerting, Dynatrace MobileApp notification and even Problem popup in Dynatrace UI


Hi again. WIth more higher load I see 11 minutes delay with the notification. Should I open support ticket or it can be tuned somehow?
