We are using dynatrace 7.0. As per our requriement, we have created email alerts on CPU Utilization. Now, client is expecting, alerts should be emailed only when the CPU utilization is continuously above 90%(threshold) for 15 minutes. Alert should not be mailed everytime threshold rule is violated.
Please advise me if this option is available.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Create a CPU Total Time (percentage of total time the CPU was in use) custom measure with the 90% upper server threshold and then create the incident on top of it with the 15 minutes timeframe and average aggregation.
Note that this will create an incident if the average is above 90% in the fifteen minute window which may not necessarily indicate it was constantly above the threshold. To alert when it is constantly above it for 15 minutes I would use the minimum aggregation instead of average. Either option should decrease the frequency of alerts.
