How to do the auto/manual tagging for a particular queue or a set of queues monitored by IBM MQ extension?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Did you try to use autotag by entitySelector? This will definitely do the trick.
An example of entitySelector for a Apache Kafka queue and IBM MQ
type(QUEUE),queueName("audit-public"),queueVendorName("Apache Kafka") type(QUEUE),queueName("CSQ8.creditcardrequest"),queueVendorName("IBM MQ")
Thank you. I used the below and it worked. Now I am looking for a way to add
type(QUEUE),entityName("RICH_XXXXXXXX") queues in the same rule.
@Babar_Qayyum for entityName you have options such as startsWith or contains conditions. See the docs.
Thank you. I had gone through with this. The challenge I am going through is that the queues monitored by the IBM MQ extension are not detected. Earlier I did not realize matching queue.
When I use the entityId along with the entityName to match the exact queue e.g. type(QUEUE),entityName("RICH_xxxxx"),entityId("CUSTOM_DEVICE-xxxxx") no matching entity appears.
Whereas, when I use only entityId("CUSTOM_DEVICE-XXXXXXXXXXXX") it matches the entity.
What is wrong with this process?
The QUEUE entities come from the traces whereas you are need that for queues which are from MQ extension, right? The extension does not create QUEUE entities, instead it creates a CUSTOM_DEVICE which has queue metrics and the queue is just a dimension. Thus this queue it's not an entity within Dynatrace. It will be possible in the Extension 2.0 version.
Thank you for this information. Do you know any expected date for the release of v2?
Sorry, no idea. Maybe @diego_morales can provide the answer.
That is correct. Queues are dimensions in EF 1.0 and those cannot be tagged. Once it gets migrated to EF 2.0 they will have their own entities and then can be tagged.
We do not have a timeline for when it will be migrated to EF 2.0, hopefully within the year.
I need to have the same thing,
Did you know if its available now?
How can we tag the specific queue for IBM MQ Extension?
