Good morning, Surya S.!

Depending on your version of AppMon, here are some helpful links for setting up URL Monitors. If you still need help after reading through the instructions, please let us know and give us an example of what you are trying to monitor.

AppMon 7.0 (May 2017): https://www.dynatrace.com/support/doc/appmon/infra...

AppMon 6.5: https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/...

AppMon 6.3: https://community.dynatrace.com/community/display/...

Kind regards,

Joshua P.

Hi Joshua,

Thank you so much for prompt response.

I have gone through the link you have provided.

Since we are very new to Dynatrace, a little bit confused and do not understand how to start with monitoring and what are the steps to start.


Our requirement is, we are given service URLs to be monitored.
e.g.. http://abcd.com:1234/.
We could see there is a plugin installed for URL Monitoring i.e.,System profiles--> Monitors-->Create-->URL Monitor.
Could you please give us the steps in detail, how can we start with?

We would be eagerly awaiting reply as this is our first task to be finished.

Thanks in advance

Srinivas

I've also found this Dynatrace video helpful with setting up alerting on the monitored URLs.

Hi @Surya S. yes I can provide an example.

  1. Open up your system profile by double-clicking on it. Then, navigate to the "Monitors" section and create a new monitor. https://i.imgur.com/MMypgUB.png
  2. Next, select "URL Monitor" and hit OK.
  3. For my environment, we have the Apache Web Servers instrumented for our website. We have selected those webservers as the "Hosts" we want to run the URL Monitor check against. Depending on if your site is using HTTP/S or not, you may have to change your protocol and port numbers. Otherwise, here are my settings that I use for my URL Monitor. https://i.imgur.com/RUzEfOa.png
  4. Then, select the "Schedule" tab and either create or use the built-in schedules for how often you want to run the test, and against which Dynatrace Collector do you want the data to be collected.
  5. Hit OK on the window and then again on the System Profile and you should be done!
  6. You can always check the Monitor in the System Profile to see if it ran successfully, or you can create Incidents against these URL Monitors to be alerted of failures. Incidents are described more here: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/doc/appmon/appli...

Congratulations, you should now have a working URL Monitor! Every situation can be different, but this is just a general guide on setting it up. Let me know if you have questions! 🙂

Kind regards,

Joshua P.
