Extend the platform, empower your team.
Monitor your Windows scheduled tasks and alert on execution issues.
This is a OneAgent extension running on Windows servers. Every minute, the extension interrogates the system for details about your configured scheduled tasks and sends Dynatrace the current state each task is in along with the time that passed since their last executions.
A problem is created automatically for any task which has failed to complete successfully. Additionally, problems can also be enabled for tasks which are taking longer than expected to complete or ones which have missed their expected scheduled execution.
