Amazon EventBridge

Dynatrace ingests metrics for multiple preselected namespaces, including Amazon EventBridge. You can view graphs per service instance, with a set of dimensions, and create custom graphs that you can pin to your dashboards.

How Dynatrace displays your service metrics

Dashboard event-dash Custom device group metrics page bridge-custom Custom device page eventbridge

Note: In Dynatrace, the custom device group is the whole Amazon EventBridge service. Each custom device is a custom event bridge in each region with the metrics for each rule name available in the Further details of the custom device overview page. The default event bridge is set as service-wide metrics so they can be viewed in the Further details of the custom device group overview section.
