Dynatrace probe

Dynatrace probe is used to determine the health of your application by examining the entry or exit criteria.

Creating secrets

To use the APITokenSecretName, create a Kubernetes secret as shown below and reference the Kubernetes secret name in the Dynatrace probe schema. Ensure that you create the secret in the same namespace where you have set up your chaos infrastructure.

apiVersion: v1
kind: Secret
name: dyna-secret
namespace: hce
type: Opaque
  • Connectivity requirements for the Dynatrace probe: You can establish a connection between the execution plane and Dynatrace by:
  1. Opening port 443 (HTTPS) to make API calls to the Dynatrace probe;
  2. Create a secret that has the Dynatrace access token with read permissions (that is, scope).


Listed below is the Dynatrace Probe schema with common properties shared across all probes and properties unique to Dynatrace probe.

EndpointEndpoint of the probeMandatory type: string Endpoint specified to access the Dynatrace probe.
MetricsRaw metric details of the probeMandatory type: metrics Provide the raw metrics that you want to query.
TimeFrameTimeframe associated with the metricsMandatory type: string Average or min or max of the timeframe specified. For example, now-5m provides average, minvaluefrom(now-5m) provides the minimum and maxvaluefrom(now-5m) provides the maximum value.
APITokenSecretNameUsed for authentication with the Dynatrace platformMandatory type: string Secret created to use the Dynatrace API, refer creating secrets.
ComparatorChecks for the correctness of the probe outputMandatory type: comparator Various fields to compare the desired and obtained data, includes type, criteria and value.


MetricsSelector Query to obtain the Dynatrace metricsMandatory type: string Provide the MetricsSelector of the metrics you have provided in the Metrics field.
EntitySelector Entity selector of the metrics Mandatory type: string Provide the EntitySelector of the metrics you have provided in the Metrics field.


Field Description Type Range Notes
type Flag to hold type of the data used for comparison Mandatory float The type contains type of data, which should be compared as part of comparison operation.
criteria Flag to hold criteria for the comparison Mandatory It supports >=, <=, ==, >, <, !=, oneOf, between for int and float type. And equal, notEqual, contains, matches, notMatches, oneOf for string type. The criteria contains criteria of the comparison, which should be fulfill as part of comparison operation.
value Flag to hold value for the comparison Mandatory N/A type: string The value contains value of the comparison, which should follow the given criteria as part of comparison operation.
