The 80/20 Rule: Top Problem Patterns of 2015
Dynatrace users have discovered a new twist on the 80-20 rule. As much as 80% of application issues are caused by just 20% of known problem patterns. These include bad database access and bad coding resulting in CPU issues and bad architectural decisions leading to sync Issues or memory leaks. This session explores the top four reported problem patterns of the last year by drilling into the PurePaths they share. Since these problems can be found in almost every application, this analytical approach offers valuable insight for everyone.

Life at the edge: How to sharpen your view beyond the Internet backbone
The Internet backbone is important to digital experiences, but you will need to reach beyond it to get a realistic view of your web app performance. In fact, your customers don’t live on the Internet backbone at all. They engage with you on-the-go from a lot of devices, wherever they happen to be. At these edges, the performance of third-party content embedded in your apps can vary widely. If your primary approach to performance management supports the Internet backbone only, there’s a big blind spot in understanding actual end-user experiences. In this session, learn how to use the mobile carrier network, the last mile peer network and real-user monitoring to close performance visibility gaps that put blinders on your performance perspective.

The elephant in the room: Learn how to address the dreaded database
In most companies, only database administrators (DBAs) have in-depth knowledge of and access to database performance information. So, when developers need these details to solve a performance problem, they have to send a request…and wait. You may have seen this movie before: DBAs consider developers to be a time sink and developers think DBAs are troublesome gatekeepers. What if developers could get direct insight to relevant performance data? They could quickly fix problems at their root—which is usually in the application code—and both sides would benefit. In this session, you’ll learn which database metrics every developer should monitor to prevent common performance problems and how you can accomplish this directly with Dynatrace.

Performance puzzlers: Speeding up performance for Java and .NET applications
It’s a late on a dark and stormy night. Sergei from the DevOps team is still in the lab trying to find the root-cause of a strange performance problem on the MQ server… During this entertaining and brain twisting session you’ll analyze several performance puzzlers and work in small groups to determine the root-causes for a variety of performance issues. You’ll practice proven problem-solving techniques including root-cause analysis and group collaboration. Mark will give bonus points for proper recommendations for problem fixes. Additional bonus points for recommending what type of testing may have prevented the issue in the first place. The most bonus points will go to person actually named Sergei. Don’t miss this opportunity to sharpen your skills.

Five things you didn’t know Data Center RUM’s DMI could do
Out-of-the-box performance reporting is great, but it can’t address very specific or unique application or process monitoring needs. That’s why DC RUM comes with a Data Mining Interface (DMI), an extremely flexible reporting engine that extends existing reporting capabilities and helps you build custom reports to address specific needs. This workshop gives you hands-on experience creating powerful customizations using the DMI. Learn how to turn your existing DC RUM reports into even better sources of insight, directly fulfilling the requirements of your most demanding use cases.
