With Dynatrace Managed 1.230, a Local self-monitoring environment is available. Initial documentation is scarce: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/setup-and-configuration/dynatrace-managed/self-monitoring/loc...
Now that I have had access to one such environment, it seems that no new information is available there, as all the dsfm metrics seem to be available in the other cluster environments. I was also expecting to have some information from the OneAgent that runs on the Managed server, but that seems to be unavailable too. Also, no default dashboards are available in the newly created environment.
Do other Managed users have access to new information? If so, please share 😄
Solved! Go to Solution.
I've read a few posts now regarding this, and really wonder why this is not available yet? Running a managed platform that you're unable to monitor yourself put you in really tough spot if you're monitoring customers that rely on the information that Dynatrace provides them.
Seen from earlier posts, it seemed like a dashboard were already in place, so I'm curious as to why this has not been published yet?
As you mentioned, with Dynatrace Managed 1.230 the Local self-monitoring environment was enabled for Managed clusters. You are right - the self monitoring metrics are also available in the environments.
But the self-monitoring metrics are also aggregated for all environments in the self-monitoring environment as well. Further description of the self-monitoring metrics can be found here: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/how-to-use-dynatrace/metrics/self-monitoring-metrics.
We just released a new self-monitoring dashboard for the self-monitoring environment via the Hub that uses the aggregated self-monitoring metrics. To enable it, go to the Hub in your self-monitoring environment and enable the extension Dynatrace Self-Monitoring (Managed).
As yous stated, this is the first release of this new approach of self-monitoring for Managed and does not contain all the metrics that one would like to have. We are offering a first set of self-monitoring metrics in this self-monitoring environment and plan to improve the self-monitoring. Over time, you will see more self-monitoring metrics that will be available in the self-monitoring environments.
It is really nice that finally we have something to montior ourselves. I tried and found that several metrics are totally not working e.g.
I am expecting that sooner all type of metrics will be fixed to utilize this great feature with the full potential.
