Make a time series graph of traffic between hosts where OneAgent is installed



I would like to visualize traffic between hosts with OneAgent installed. As shown in the screenshot, traffic between hosts is displayed as "Transfer". Is it possible to display this value as time series data in a graph with Data Explorer? I tried looking up the metrics, but I couldn't find any relevant metrics.

You can use this metrics with splitting by host:

  • Traffic in
  • Traffic out

Hi Radek-san.
Thank you for your comment.
I think there is a problem with my question and I confused you. sorry.
What I want to investigate is that there are three hosts "1", "2", and "3" with Oneagent installed, and traffic is generated from each host to host. As shown in the figure below, I would like to visualize the traffic on a host-to-host basis and create a time series graph.

You have Analyze process connections but this is for processes instead of hosts, just in case.

Hi Anton-san.

Thanks for your comment.
"Analyze process connections" is also interesting. You can also see Process to Process traffic as seen in this screenshot. I would like to be able to express Process to Process traffic in a time series graph as well.

Hi @Shirai and @AntonPineiro 

I don't know if we can fully meet your expectation at Dynatrace. What I would do is, export these metrics outside of Dynatrace. Then based on them I would build the appropriate visualizations in Kibana or Grafana for example. Alternatively, I would write a piece of code to show me these dependencies based on the metrics from DT.


Have a nice day!

I think Dynatrace should be able to do this. If this isn't a Product Idea it should be turned into one.

The above examples of Classic Host page and Process connections, they are great, but are based on the "now", real time. So going back to a previous situation, like last week monday 10AM, will not work. (Not even an option with Process connections, Host classic does not update/reflect the timebox) (Also on process level, the historical metric info isn't available)

There are plenty of cases that there was a lot of traffic at some point, where it would be very helpful, if you could split this out to connected hosts sending or receiving that traffic on a certain point of time in the past (e.g. was is the database server, a web server, or some host not monitored?). If this added dimention could mean a lot of extra data, maybe it could be turned into a switch.
