We have Dynatrace Managed and currently, one of our applications is having quite some HTTP 500 errors. These are visible when you view the application overview page, but we want to see them as open problems in the Problem overview. Is that possible?
We are monitoring the application via manually injected.
If it is possible, how do you set it up? We did configure the error detection for HTTP 5xx errors as followed:
However, we still don't see open problems in the Problem overview.
If it is not possible, is there another way to quickly get notified by the amount of HTTP500 errors for this application?
I have checked one managed environment and I can see failure rate problems for web apps.
With this content:
Maybe the frequent issue detection block to open new problem but it is a "weak" assumption.
In worst case scenario you should create a metric for request errors at the app and then a metric events with a statis threshold strategy for the new metric.
I hope it helps.
Thank you for your reply!
Is there currently no other way of showing (many) HTTP 5xx errors as (new) problems in the Problem Overview other than by creating custom alerts?
It would be interesting to hear from someone who knows more about this, and especially how/why those error rate alerts for web apps appeared and then disappeared.
Hang on, I even found the discussion here:
