Can someone please elaborate the difference between process availability and process connectivity in dynatrace. Can we consider process connectivity metrics an equivalent to availability.
I could not find a metrics related to process availability. However, dynatrace alert on when a process goes down through anomaly detection.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Process availability is measured by oneagent. If process is working it's available. Connectivity is network metric. If other processes can connect to investigated process, connectivity measure is 100%. It's also related to TCP connections, more detailes here:
Process availability is collected by our OneAgent on OS level, which means if the process is up and running. It does not tell you anything about the process being responsive or correctly doing its job.
You can fetch the process availability by using the timeseries id shown within the screenshot below:
Thanks Sebastian and Wolfgang for your quick help
It would be great if we can have this metric for charting as well. We have this requirements from the customer, they want to see the availability of critical application processes on dashboard. Like we have traffic light tile for hosts and services where we immediately come to know about any problem related to services and hosts of an app just by looking at the dashboard.
