The documentation says:
By default, Dynatrace alerts when average CPU usage is higher than 95% in 3 of 5 consecutive one-minute intervals or when usage is higher than 90% in a single five-minute interval.
But, when we look at how we define custom settings for the CPU saturation settings, it seems to be based on the 10-second samples that are taken each minute:
Now, even though the two approaches might seem similar, there are cases where it will not happen. Given that we don't have visibility into the 10-second samples (we do have the min/avg/max values), how do we know what is exactly happening with CPU saturation detection?
BTW, remembers me of this Product Idea: https://community.dynatrace.com/t5/Product-ideas/RFE-Increase-resolution-of-data/idi-p/166920

What documentation exactly are you looking at? The documentation here discusses event thresholds using 10 second intervals. I believe 10 second intervals are used for infra alerting, and one minute intervals are used for graphing. If you provide me the documentation where it says that, I can get clarification from product team and get updated appropriately.
