We have a scenario where the Websphere PMI interface is preventing Dyantrace from pulling metrics for certain JVMs which would then need to be restarted to recover.
I am trying to think of a way to detect this failure in Dynatrace - but cannot come up with a solution. Since the PMI based measure split by agent doesn't even have a split for that agent when it's broken I can't alert at a 0 threshold.
That is probably the best option. the other one would be to create an incident on one of these PMI Measures and select "count" for the Condition Aggregation and a lower severe threshold of 0. In that case the incident will trigger in case we have not received any values for this measure in the given evaluation interval
