Local self-monitoring environment
This page will soon be available only on the dedicated Dynatrace Managed Documentation site. Update your bookmarks.
Dynatrace Managed version 1.230+
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.
