Proving Availability and Performance in a Citrix Environment

In my role as a Dynatrace Consultant I’ve had the opportunity to visit customers repeatedly over extended periods of time. This has allowed me to contribute to different approaches to solving problems, and to observe how well the solutions fit the unique needs of each customer. It helps if you’ve seen certain use cases before; however, there are always cases when you come across a customer whose requirements initially sound … read more

2016 Presidential Debate #1 Stream Report: The Digital Disruption of Politics

Last night was reportedly the most watched presidential debate ever. Some are estimating over 100- million viewers watched Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump go at it. I set up some Dynatrace Synthetics tests to compare the sites that would be live streaming the debate. I monitored from nine locations across the US, every five minutes, using both a Chrome and IE browser. I divided the tests into two categories Traditional Media and New Media. The traditional media … read more

Continuous Innovation with Dynatrace AppMon & UEM 6.5

Customer-centric innovation, more frequent deployments, the adoption of new stack and PaaS (Platform as a Service), as well as breaking up the monolith into micro-services, are several of the trends we can’t escape when following the hot topics at conferences or when talking with enterprise Innovation and Transformation Teams. What you typically don’t hear are the challenges that come with this transformation: increased code complexity when combining legacy and new stack … read more

Dashboard tiles: Key user actions, Overall conversion goals, and Individual goals

Not all user actions share the same priority for your business. User actions that are vital to the success of your business require elevated visibility. This is why “key” user actions—those actions that you’ve identified as being vital to the success of your business—now have their own standalone dashboard tile. We’ve also made it easier for you to track your business’ success toward conversion goals by introducing two new conversion-goal … read more

Service flow now includes applications and user actions!

Earlier this year, we introduced Service flow view to visualize service requests from end-to-end, making it possible for you to see the sequences of service calls that result from each individual web request. While valuable, Service flow view lacked the ability to correlate its insights with the applications and user actions that initially trigger these sequences. We’ve now enhanced Service flow so that its insights are presented within the context … read more

See the technologies that underlie each process!

More than simply knowing the types of processes in your environment (e.g., Java or .NET), Dynatrace understands the technologies that underlie those processes. For example, Dynatrace understands when a Java process is comprised of a Tomcat or a Jetty — in many cases it even knows the versions of these technologies. For the first time, we’re making this information available to you on each Process page. With detailed analysis of the technologies and versions … read more
