Customers asks to show on a dashboard a graph of response time / request count of a service split by the instances the service is run on.
There is no problem to do that with MDA but when trying to create a metric on it, its says "instance is not allowed as placeholder".
Is there or will there be a way to create this kind of metrics or any other way to show it on chart?
Thanks in advance
I think @Yos N. is asking if we can create a custom metric based on Service:Instance for use on a custom dashboard (he indicated that it works fine in the MDA view).
We also have a similar requirement to migrate an Appmon dashboard that showed request counts per instance. We also tried creating a calculated service metric and are now looking into the API.
Sadly it seems that is not yet possible to create a service metric and list all the instance of a process group as dimensions of a "Request Count". I try it a few versions back, and in 203 is the same.
The only way is to create a chart for each sadly. I would assume that when when you say chart, you mean Dashboard right (as in why you want to create a service metric)? If that is the case... afik is not yet possible sadly the only whay is an MDA...
