How do I adjust anomaly detection for database services?

Dynatrace offers detailed anomaly-detection settings for database services. You can even override automatic baselining and use your own custom thresholds.

Dynatrace automatically learns the baseline reference values of all your database services and notifies you when response-time degradations occur or error rates increase. As the number of database service calls is typically much higher than the number of web service requests, and because database-service response times are on average faster than web service requests, Dynatrace uses tighter thresholds for the detection of database-service violations. For those of you looking for stricter or more relaxed thresholds, Dynatrace offers anomaly-detection parameterization for database services.

To configure anomaly detection settings for database services:

  1. Go to Settings > Anomaly detection > Database services.
  2. (For automatic detection) From the Detect response time degradations drop list, select automatically and set values in the remaining fields.
    (For automatic detection) From the Detect increases in failure rate drop list, select automatically and set values in the remaining fields.
  3. (For custom thresholds) From the Detect response time degradations drop list, select using fixed thresholds and set values in the remaining fields.
    (For custom thresholds) From the Detect increases in failure rate drop list, select using fixed thresholds and set values in the remaining fields.
