Static thresholds for infrastructure monitoring
Dynatrace infrastructure monitoring is based on numerous built-in, predefined static thresholds. These thresholds relate to resource contentions like CPU spikes, memory, and disk usage. You can change these default thresholds by going to Settings > Anomaly Detection > Infrastructure in the Dynatrace menu.
For applications and services, you can disable automated baselining-based reference-value detection anytime and switch to user-defined static thresholds. If you set a static threshold for response time and error rate on an application or service level, events will be raised if the static threshold is breached. A slowdown event is raised if the static thresholds for either the median or the 90th percentile response times are breached.
Predefined static thresholds for hosts
Alerts on the infrastructure level for AIX hosts out of the box are not supported.
|Hosts||Default static threshold|
Memory event usage
Java out of memory
Predefined static thresholds for networks
|Network||Default static threshold|
Number of dropped packets
TCP connectivity for process
Predefined static thresholds for disks
|Disk||Default static threshold|
Low disk space
Slow running disks
Inodes number available
As static thresholds don't adapt to changing environments and require too much manual effort, Dynatrace also offers intelligent, automated multi-dimensional baselining, which works out of the box, without manual configuration of thresholds. Most importantly, it adapts automatically to changes in traffic patterns.
