Dynatrace can now serve as a ServiceNow ITOM event source

ServiceNow IT Operations Management (ITOM) provides an overview on your business services as well as on the underlying infrastructure. Dynatrace on the other hand delivers real time performance, error and availability information on application level as well as on infrastructural level. Combining ServiceNow ITOM and Dynatrace OneAgent information highly improves the overall visibility in terms of accuracy and granularity. With this Dynatrace release we introduce a ServiceNow ITOM integration that directly pushes Dynatrace detected events into the ServiceNow event table.

ServiceNow IT Operations Management correlates events from multiple sources to filter and align detected events with the underlying business services and applications in your environment. As the ServiceNow ITOM module relies on the quality and accuracy of the details of individual events, connecting Dynatrace—the next generation full-stack monitoring platform—as an ITOM event source is a smart move. While Dynatrace detects all application, infrastructure, and cloud-based anomalies, IT operations teams can flexibly filter and route these incoming Dynatrace events within the ServiceNow ITOM dashboard. Dynatrace provides accurate event detection and delivery even within highly dynamic microservice environments, with no time-consuming configuration required.

To enable ServiceNow ITOM integration within Dynatrace

  1. Go to Settings > Integration > Problem notifications and
  2. Click the ServiceNow tile.
  3. On the Setup ServiceNow Integration page, set the Send events into ServiceNow ITOM switch to the On position. Once enabled, all detected infrastructure events that are correlated within a Dynatrace-detected problem are automatically pushed to the ITOM event API.

The ServiceNow to Dynatrace integration uses the ITOM Events WebService Bulk API to send detected events and automatically trigger ITOM-related CI mapping and alerting workflows. ServiceNow users can then define specific filtering and alerting rules to either alert send alerts related to Dynatrace-detected events or to attach those events to selected CMDB configuration items.

To avoid double reporting of individual incidents, the Setup ServiceNow Integration page also offers a toggle for enabling/disabling the sending of ServiceNow incidents. This switch should be disabled when the ServiceNow ITOM module is used for incident creation rather than Dynatrace.

Once the ITOM integration is enabled, the ServiceNow event table will show events generated by the DYNATRACE source, as shown below:

As you can see, Dynatrace provides a human-readable event description, TCP connectivity rate for process Dynatrace-dev-CF on host lr-ws-l02v has decreased to 0%. The event contains additional information, such as the IP address of the host on which the event was detected, the severity of the event, and the unique Dynatrace ID of the affected entity, PROCESS_GROUP_INSTANCE_7D23E461C31940D0. With this ID, additional information about the affected entity can be pulled using the Dynatrace REST API.

The newly introduced direct Dynatrace to ServiceNow ITOM integration further simplifies the use of real-time monitoring data within your IT operations management dashboard.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
