Hello EdoardoB (great name),
You could use a custom process monitoring rule with "Do not monitor" to stop monitoring the processes creating the service. The issue will be making sure you can identify just that process.
Yes, you can exclude requests to specific URLs. In my case e.g. we exclude on an apache webserver all requests that begin with '/server-status' as they come from our monitoring with icinga and are of no interest in Dynatrace now.
When you want to exclude only some requests but they all use the same URL, then you cann't use this configuration.
There is no proper way to accomplish what you want, this is something that could be done previously in AppMon. As work around, we merge those services into the primary monitored service, not pretty, but gets it off your screen, you will then have the web requests show up under the main service, which you can mute.
I've raised a product enhancement for this specific feature. If you add your support to it, it might get some more focus.
Hi @EdoardoB ,
I'd recommend to do this:
This might be a little effort but since we now have API access to define both key- and muted requests this can be done through the API for large scales.
E.g.: I'm excluding "irrelevant" /healtz check requests from all the microservice mesh health checks by muting them on every service.
