I am now deciding whether to use metrics API or DQL to query metrics. But now, I am facing a problem that I can't find some metrics using DQL. (e.g. builtin:host.cpu.load15m)
Is that all metrics that can be queried by metrics selector can also be use DQL to query?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi Stephen - DQL is only used for querying logs and events with Grail: DQL Documentation.
For the metric selector, metric queries are handled differently, and do not use DQL. I'd recommend checking out the Data Explorer Advanced Mode to get a better idea of how metric queries are handled.
With the rollout of the latest Dynatrace, the DQL can also query metrics. Here you can find the documentation article with the list of all metrics supported by Grail:
