Application process shutdown - customize alert based on a set of hostnames (server/agent)


Hi, Is there a way to customize the "Application Process Shutdown" alert in Dynatrace AppMon v7.x based on a set of hostnames (agents). Like, I have 700 agents added to a system profile for monitoring and few agents are out of scope from alerting. Hence, I want to exclude the unwanted agents and just enabled the "Application Process Shutdown" for agents/hostname that starts with the name "apgw_".

Is there a feasibility in DT AppMon to achieve this.

Thanks in advance for your response!

Hello Sudhakara,

Have you looked into creating Hostgroups? You can do this by going to the 'Infrastructure' tab in your Server settings. Once you created a hostgroup, you can alert off of them one of which includes 'Host/Process Availability'.

Here's a screenshot of what i'm talking about (12c Hosts CHA-A is one of our host groups):-



i have tried creating Hostgroups and customized alerts for a group. However some of them are still not working as expected. is there any way to create groups for all JVM's instead of a Host ?
