Billing host units - a chart with changes


When there's a small environment the same user manage systems and - also - monitoring product like Dynatrace.

but when you have a large environment, probably different people do different work.

So, at the moment, we manage the Dynatrace systems but the consumption of the license is - obviously - based on the hardware that are monitored.

We haven't any chart/graph/something else that can make to us an evidence of what happened at our license.

The request to you is : can we have a table that can give us a signal of that? Also a warning like "host XXX change from 1 host unit to 2 host unit" or something like that.

Hi @Jad you can make an API query to {{baseUrl}}/entities/:entityId?fields=properties.memoryTotal and iterate for each monitored host if you use a from to time clause you can see differences. Or more easy, create a data explorer graph and use the following with a top list graph type""):delta:sort(value(auto,descending))

Put your time frame on a monthly or weekly basis and you can see the hosts increment. Because the host unit is memory based, it can see your changes.

I change this to QA forum.

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.
