I would like to trigger an alert based on a custom event. Any ideas how to do this?
The main reason why to create a custom event was:
We would like to trigger an alert when a custom service doesn't have any througput anymore.
For example: a transaction stopped and isn't running anymore, and we would like to notify the team it stopped. The count option isn't available as a metric within services.

Unfortunately I don't think there is an easy way to do this in Dynatrace at the moment. The only thing i can think of is if this is somewhere in your monitored logs when throughput is zero. You can create a log event based on this and alert when this event occurs in the log file. Another option is to do something custom via the API where you pull the metric and create a script to email you if the value is zero. Unfortunately, there is no configuration at this time for alerting of the throughput metric. I believe there is an RFE for this.
