In a POC did we switch from Dynatrace APM to Dynatrace SaaS Managed. This runs fine until hitting physical machines.
Our question I want to raise is:
"How is the way to monitor specific hardware, in our case raid controllers or single disks?"
As far as we see is it not possible to see the any issues on the hardware layer of a physical server.
How do you manage this or is everyone running Dynatrace as a monitoring solution in a virtualized environment?
Best regards and thank you in advance.
Solved! Go to Solution.
RAID controllers could be monitored with a custom plugin. Here you can find instructions on how to write such a plugin:
thank you for your fast reply. We will give it a try. .-)
Would it be a valid way, to use a self written plugin to check a router/switch over snmp by a monitoring server, which pushes the values to the Dynatrace Server?
We own our physical data center and we would like to check it with Dynatrace SaaS as well as our Services and Applications.
Thank you and have a nice day.
