We have enabled NTP monitoring on our systems which provides us with the `builtin:tech.ntp.ntp_offset` metric. This value is the time offset from the actual which can be either positive or negative.
Now the problem is that for either alerting or thresholds in graphs I can only define positive offsets. I can't add an alert or threshold for anything below a certain value. So I'd like to transform the graph to convert any negative values into positive. The absolute value in mathematical terms.
I have tried
Am I missing something here or is this functionality not available (yet)?
(Using Dynatrace Managed version 1.238 if that is relevant)
Solved! Go to Solution.
Can the follow threshold setting help you?
And for alerting you will need to add 2 rules one for positive (above) and the other for negative (below)
I did not realize the threshold definition colors were applied in the specified order, a weird way of doing it but it works perfectly!
And for the alerts I guess I'll just have to duplicate the metric there. Thanks for the help!
