Azure Application Gateways (built-in)
Dynatrace ingests metrics from Azure Metrics API for Azure Application Gateways. You can view metrics for each service instance, split metrics into multiple dimensions, and create custom charts that you can pin to your dashboards.
- Environment ActiveGate
- To disable monitoring of built-in services you need Environment ActiveGate version 1.245+, Dynatrace version 1.247+
To enable monitoring for this service, you need to set up integration with Azure Monitor.
Add the service to monitoring
To view service metrics, the service needs to be monitored in your Dynatrace environment.
This is a built-in service. It’s monitored out-of-the-box once a new Azure integration instance is created. For built-in services, all metrics are recommended (changing configuration is not possible).
- In the Dynatrace menu, go to Settings and select Cloud and virtualization > Azure.
- On the Azure overview page, select the Edit icon for the Azure instance.
- Under Services, select Manage services.
- Select Add service, choose the service from the list, and select Add service.
- Select Save changes to save your configuration.
Monitor resources based on tags
You can choose to monitor resources based on existing Azure tags, as Dynatrace automatically imports them from service instances.
To monitor resources based on tags
