Monitor service performance using the built-in dashboard 🔗
Buttercup Games launches a Black Friday sales event. Deepu, the payment service owner, expects higher traffic on the website that might impact the payment service. In addition to setting Splunk APM detectors to alert for the abnormal error rate and latency, Deepu uses the Splunk APM Service dashboard for monitoring.
From the APM Overview, Deepu selects Explore to enter the service map. Deepu clicks the paymentservice node and selects the View Dashboard on the sidebar.
Deepu sees the built-in dashboard for the payment service, and then sets the Chart Resolution to very high for monitoring more details. Deepu configured global data links to connect Splunk APM properties to related resources in Splunk Observability Cloud. By clicking a tag with a global data link, Deepu can navigate to an infrastructure-related dashboard that they can use to cross-monitor the payment service and the infrastructure.
For details about how to configure Splunk APM detectors, see Configure detectors and alerts in Splunk APM.
