Which aggregation type is not automatically calculated for every measure.

I realized the certification and the truth I feel quite frustrated since in her there were several questions that looking in the documentation, forums, videos, etc. there are no answers. Then I ask for help from the community.
Thank you very much.

In the default configuration, Which aggregation type is NOT automatically calculated for every measure, and why?

1- Sum, as this type of aggregation is only aplicable to BT measures.

2- Percentiles, because they are not relevant for most measures and are no turned on by default.

3- average, since it can be computed using sum and count.

4- Maximums, because they are only applicable to BT measures.

I read:

https://community.dynatrace.com/community/pages/vi...

https://university.dynatrace.com/discover/appmon/1...

In this video all measures are mencionated

I think the correct answer is:

2- Percentiles, because they are not relevant for most measures and are no turned on by default.

Because in the documentation says:

Why does the configured series aggregation get lost when I switch to a Percentile chart?

The Percentile chart is the only type to use a special aggregation. When you switch back to another chart type, the series aggregation gets reset to average.

Why is data missing after I switch to percentile aggregation?

We recommend that you use time frames of >= 1h with percentile aggregations, because Dynatrace calculates percentiles per hour (resolution of 1 hour).

But is not clearly... Can you ask this question? Or give me information where I can read?

Yes, the second answer is correct, Percentiles are not calculated if you do not turn it on specifically.

agree,but what is your foundation?

It is in the training slides from the vILT. The Create and configure measures Documentation Page also states that you have to activate the percentile calculation.
