DT Managed - Adjusting aggregation and timeframe


Hello -

My enterprise is rolling out Dynatrace Managed internally, and one thing users have noticed is that data aggregation is automatically set depending on how large of a timeframe a user is looking at. For example, viewing a chart from a 2-hour timeframe will show some app server CPU's running up to 100%, however, when you change the timeframe to view 6 or 12 hours or more, the aggregation is automatically changed, and thus that 100% CPU spike may now look like 20% or less depending on how the aggregation was automatically changed.

While this may be useful and intended in some cases, it is not super intuitive to users and it would greatly improve analysis capabilities if there was a way to manually configure the aggregation level in addition to the timeframe. Is there currently a way to do this that I'm missing, or should I be submitting an enhancement request?

we have a plan on the roadmap that will allow drilling into the details of most of the charts. That detail screen will show the chart fullscreen and will also allow to switch to different aggregations and resolutions. I think this should make it into the product in the next 6 month.

Hi Andrew!

You posted your request quite some time ago, so I'd like to check whether there is still an issue with CPU visually dropping to 20% upon changing the timeframe? If so, I'd love to see a screenshot, as I'm not aware of such an issue. As for customizing a charts resolution, we have that topic on our roadmap for Q4 2018.

You can set a custom resolution using the Data explorer since version 1.235.
