You can dynamically monitor error rate and latency in the services you are tracing with µAPM PG. µAPM PG detectors use built-in algorithms to detect sudden spikes and historical anomalies in your APM metrics, while requiring minimal setup.

In the SignalFx UI, you can quickly set up a µAPM PG detector from the µAPM PG Services page, or from the Detector menu on any chart with APM PG metrics. You can also create µAPM PG detectors via the SignalFx API.


Many charts in the Smart Gateway dashboards have associated detector templates, which let you quickly create detectors relevant to the data in the chart. For more information, see Smart Gateway detector templates.
