Custom Database Queries extension: metrics limit expired


Hi Team,

We have configured the Database extension in our environment, but after some days, data was visible in the active directory log, but there was no data in the Dynatrace console due to the metrics limit expiring.


So is there a solution for this? Can we monitor the database query in Dynatrace in a different way?

Usually metrics stop being ingested due to one of two reasons:

1. You are out of DDUs. If this is the case, please contact your account manager

2. Your query returned something unique, such as a timestamp or another highly volatile dimension. If this is the case, please remove such columns from being collected, either by converting it into a value instead of a dimension (seconds ago instead of timestamp for example), or by making it into an Extension Framework 2.0 extension, and ingest it as logs.
