I need to create a dashboard with the geo location of internet clients : Continent/country
So i'm trying to create sites in the Rum Console this way :
Regions = Internet
Areas = Continent
Sites = Country
I have found this old forum question talking about geolite as source for the IP address.
I transformed the geolite2 data in a DCRUM compatible format (which is not documented in DCRUM's documentation. The section of the admin guide is not fully documented)
But DC-RUM seems to not be able to import my file because my IP address range is to big.
Has anyone already done this kind of import/dashboard ? Can you provide us a feedback or help ?
Yes Sandrine, it will work.
It will not be a precision instrument as there's a constant merger and spin off activity in the allocated IP field and the records are Always a bit delyed. But the right way to go is the Geobytes site. Unfortunately Dynatrace and DCRUM uses two different sourcees/formats, but with a little bit of nice scripting, any source should work.
Yes Ulf, I transformed the geolite2 data by my self.
I updated the asn and bgp zip file, but it does'nt change anything.
I noticed the country information in the asn.zip. How can we get this information in our DCRUM dashboards ?
How does Geobytes work ?
If you don't get the results you desire I suggest you open a ticket for that.
The mapping of IP against ASN and BGP is one of the older features in DC-RUM and "should" still work. It' a bit picky though, with the format of the files.
Please post if you discover something that is not in the manual 🙂
