Push custom metrics via some endpoint of Dynatrace API ... it's possible?

Hi,

 

We have a series of "circuit breakers" that determine the logical behavior of the application (something like WITH PROBLEM / NO PROBLEM).

The idea is to take the status of these circuit breakers to Dynatrace, with customized metrics, creating dashboards, thresholds and notifications.

 

The big question is: Can we push custom metrics via some endpoint of Dynatrace API? What would be the endpoint?

Or is the only way via Dynatrace Plugin?

 

Thank you,

Fernando

Hi Fernando,

Yes you can use our new, extremely flexible metric ingest endpoint.

See here:

Sure you can!

There are several methods you can choose from for pushing the metrics:

Thank you all.

The metrics ingestion protocol is exactly what I need.

I just found it strange that the Chart (Explorer) was separate from the Custom Chart.

Fernando.

AFAIK the new metric explorer will replace the Custom chart eventually. That's why is is considered as a preview at the moment.
