Unified analysis pages
Dynatrace unified analysis pages bring all observability data and relevant analytical tools for effective analysis and troubleshooting into context. When exploring metrics, events, logs, and metadata for a problematic, domain-specific entity, you can find every observability signal related to this entity on one page.
The host overview page is an example of a unified analysis page available in most environments.
There are two types of unified analysis pages:
- List screen
The list screen is automatically generated and enables you to browse all instances of a specific entity type. You can find the available customizations in List settings.
- Details screen
The entity details screen brings all observability signals attached to an entity into context. Like the list screen, a details screen is automatically generated for every entity in your environment. You can find the available customizations in Details settings.
On the entity page, you can define various types of cards.
Use the chart group component to group configured charts in a grid. For configuration details, see Chart group cards.
You can use the following chart types (controlled by the
Use the entity list card to show entities of the same type, their attributes, and related entities in one table.
For configuration details, see Entities list cards.
Use the metric table card to show multiple metric data in one table.
For configuration details, see Metric table cards.
See Properties cards for configuration details.
Use the logs card—which has the same functionalities as the Log viewer—to display a bar chart representing different log occurrences within the selected timeframe and a detailed table where each log is an entry with additional properties such as timestamp, status, and content.
See Logs cards for configuration details.
Use the message card to show information when a certain condition is satisfied. For configuration details, see Message cards. There are two types of message card visualization:
- Message—a card that just displays text information.
- Card—a card with a title, description, and available actions.
For example, display the message card if OneAgent is not deployed:
Use the events card to display events related to the specified entities.
See Events cards for configuration details.
Use the health card to display specific metrics in a visual format. By default, it provides a quick overview of up to six distinct tiles, each representing a unique metric or data point.
Single tile reacts to certain events on connected metrics and may take different colors:
green—there is data on at least one connected metric
red—there is an open problem related to at least one connected metric
gray—there is a closed problem related to at least one connected metric
white—there is no data for this tile in current timeframe
See Health cards for configuration details.
Actions define what happens after selecting one of the available options available from the More (…) menu in the upper-right corner of every card.
See Actions for configuration details.
Unified analysis supports filtering entities by indexed entity attributes. You can enable filtering for the list screen and in the context of specific cards. Entity filtering can be configured at two levels:
If you want to display the cards on the page without modifying their layout, see Extend built-in unified analysis pages.
The exploratory analysis analyzes only the metrics from the graph charts that are in the chart groups, entities lists, and metric tables. For more information, see Davis® causal correlation analysis.
