Custom monitoring with custom metrics

Hi

In AppMon, for example, we have possibility to run custom SQL queries to get some business metrics from SQLSever or some database. AppMon runs them periodically and we can create dashboards based on those custom metrics.

Can we do the same thing with Dynatrace SaaS, if yes how it is done?

thanks

br,

Farid

This is (currently) not possible. Only possible approach I know about is to use oneagent plugin using SDK to fetch your custom metrics. Since you are referring to running custom SQL, you will need to handle all aspects such as connection, running SQL and returning results. You will also need to manually configure connection parameters for the plugin, as you can't retrieve this information from running applications.

@Julius L. can we push custom metrics at least via some API?

Sure, you can. Use the custom metrics api. There are some limits such as number of allowed metrics.
