Api Call host.availability - details for possible value

Hello every body,

I'm extracting data for host availability from dynatrace managed via this timeseries metric com.dynatrace.builtin:host.availability

 

When I read the data I see different values but I'm missing the meaning for some of these:

AVAILABLE (The regular available status when oneagent is sending data and the host is up and running)

INITIALIZING

NOT_AVAILABLE (When an host has been gracefull shutdown or it went down for any other reason)

UNMONITORED (When an agent is uninstalled)

MONITORING_SIGNAL_LOST

UNKNOWN

Can someone give me better insight for status INITIALIZING / MONITORING_SIGNAL_LOST / UNKNOWN?

Is there a "in maintenance" status?

This is what I found about availability on the docs:

This is what I found about host.availability timeseries metrics status on the docs:

I don't think this is publicly documented, but my guess:

  • AVAILABLE (The regular available status when oneagent is sending data and the host is up and running)
  • INITIALIZING - agent is starting up (initial beacon?) but did not send any data yet
  • NOT_AVAILABLE (When an host has been gracefull shutdown or it went down for any other reason)
  • UNMONITORED (When an agent is uninstalled)
  • MONITORING_SIGNAL_LOST - agent disconnected (network issues probably)
  • UNKNOWN - nothing from above
Maintenance won't be there since maintenance is defined on a more granular level (host / process /service/..) and not on the agent itself.
