Public facing status dashboard?

david_clarke

We would like to have a status dashboard for our services showing green/yellow/red availability (similar to Atlassian's statuspage.io). A single service may consist of databases, multiple docker containers running on different hosts, a web server etc.. There are also background services we would like to display that have no web front end.

Is there a way we can leverage Dynatrace for this purpose, and if so what would be the best practices? Should we group components of service using tags, or push custom metrics with our definition of availability using a custom Dynatrace plugin? We could use the Dynatrace API to read metrics out into our own dashboard service.

Has anyone had experience setting something like this up, or is this not a good use case for Dynatrace?

Hey David... When reading your question I thought you might like our "Blinking lights tiles". See here:

Does it help a bit?

has anyone tackled this issue? I'm looking at status.io vs statuspage.io but my question is the same

The answer to your question is: "RAG status for Apdex dashboard tile"

single value tiles => background color, thresholds for states as well as heatmaps (state over time)
