This 4.5-hour virtual module, targeted towards developers and DevOps, focuses on creating custom metrics to monitor your applications/services with Splunk IM. Learn to instrument applications/services to send in custom metrics that characterize the application of service. Define relevant metadata for your metrics to let you find, filter and aggregate the metrics that you want to chart or alert on. Create charts and custom dashboards to visualize these custom metrics. Create detectors to monitor the metrics to alert when there are any issues with the application or service. This module assumes that you have completed the Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring Fundamentals module. Learn the concepts and apply the knowledge through discussions and hands-on activities.
Note that this module is a shortened version of the module Sending Custom Metrics to Splunk IM (retired module).
