Local self-monitoring environment
A Dynatrace Managed cluster includes a dedicated local self-monitoring environment that collects internal deployment self-monitoring metrics. This environment is a fully working and accessible Dynatrace environment. It includes all the self-monitoring metrics collected and aggregated from the other environments on your Dynatrace Managed cluster. Data is exclusively stored on premises on your cluster. For details, see Self-monitoring metrics.
You can navigate to the self-monitoring environment from the user menu, just as you would to any other environment. The local self-monitoring environment is named Local-Self-Monitoring. It is also displayed in the Cluster Management Console so you can assign user permissions to it.
For an overview of the currently implemented self-monitoring metrics, filter for metrics prefixed with
dsfm: in the metrics browser. The metrics description provides details. You can use the self-monitoring environment to set up proper alerting or further dashboarding. The environment is protected from deletion.
The self-monitoring environment is excluded from license consumption. Certain functionality is restricted in this self-monitoring. For example, it is not possible to connect OneAgents to the self-monitoring environment.
Requires DDU licensing
For technical reasons, the self-monitoring environment is enabled only for Dynatrace Managed customers using DDU licensing, although the self-monitoring environment is excluded from all license consumption.
Cluster deployment health and utilization dashboard
The self-monitoring dashboard is available for Dynatrace Managed clusters to be used in the self-monitoring environment of the cluster. Although it can be used in other environments (Managed and SaaS), some of the data shown may be inaccurate for these.
To get started
- Go to the Dynatrace Managed self-monitoring environment in which you want to install the dashboard.
- In the Dynatrace menu, go to Hub.
- On the Dynatrace tab, find and select Dynatrace Self-Monitoring (Managed).
- On the Dynatrace Self-Monitoring (Managed) page, select Add to environment in the lower-right corner to install the self-monitoring extension in your environment.
