Need to know if we can monitor NTP sync status using Dynatrace Managed.




You could Create a script/plugin that feed that info to a metric.

Hi Dante

Thanks for your input.

I saw the documentation to create custom metrics []

But wondering how I will feed the variable output of a shell script automatically into the JSON field; so that it will automatically update the chart over time?

I mean how the variable output will be reported to the custom device endpoint automatically in every 1 or 5 min (Say I my script is executing at an interval of 1 or 5 mins and producing output which I need to push in DT)?

Any Script example to refer..? That will help a lot..!


Hey @Rahul A. sorry for the late reply.

What we did in our case is create a template for the json to upload and call a python script that retrive the info it needs and the post it to the custom device every minute. I will try to see if is possible to post our example.
