Data retention for Custom metrics (how long\ interval granularity)

Alexander_R_

Hello community.

My question is about Custom metrics. I am interested about Depth of Storage. I have created metrics successfully and push data to Dynatrace.

How many days we have in case with Custom metrics? Is there some agregation?

I have find only this: Timeseries metrics (Key user actions and requests)

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/data-retention


Please, clarify to me - how long custom metrrics will store in Dynatrace.

What kind agreagation - interval granularity I will have.

Thanks


Alexander

Data retention for custom metrics:

Dynatrace metric-data persistence follows a data-retention strategy that aggregates metrics over time. The data-retention strategy applied to custom metrics is identical to the data-retention strategy applied to built-in timeseries metrics.

Timeseries metrics:

0-14 days: 1-minute interval granularity available for dashboarding and API access.

14-28 days: 5-minute interval granularity available for dashboarding and API access.

28-400 days: 1-hour interval granularity available for dashboarding and API access.

400 days - 5 years: 1-day interval granularity available for dashboarding and API access.
