Hi We have couple of servers with Infra only mode where we want to monitor windows services which are critical for platform support . These services are not getting discovered automatically by DT One Agent .We tried to define the Process detection rule but it is not working.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This generally works quite well, just two things to keep in mind:
You won't ever see any entities or status representing windows services in Dynatrace. Dynatrace works on the process level. A windows service typically is just a process with some kind of managed execution.
Can you be more specific in what you are trying to achieve?
I think you need to setup a custom device / use remote plugin - see details here: https://answers.dynatrace.com/spaces/482/dynatrace-open-qa/questions/228430/can-we-monitor-ntp-sync-...
The other question is why would you bother with these processes if they don't impact your users and services? They should also be reported as "Windows processes"
For monitoring PrintSpooler windows service, we have created environment variable(DT_CLUSTER_ID=PrintSpooler) in Registry Editor, then restarted that particular service and OneAgent will automatically picking this service and showing results in "All Processes" area of process groups on that host. Issue has been resolved now.Thanks for your all suggestions. If you need any details on this, let me know.
