Dynatrace Managed feature update, Version 124

Support for automated Dynatrace Cluster installations Currently, before a new Dynatrace Servier cluster installation can be used, your system administrator must go to the Dynatrace Managed web UI to set their password and email address. While this is fine for manual installations, it’s impractical for automated installations. With this in mind, we’ve added some additional installer parameters that facilitate Dynatrace Server configuration without visiting the web UI: --initial-environment --initial-first-name… read more

Efficiently filter problem notifications with alerting profiles

The latest Dynatrace release introduces an important change in the way that notifications are sent out for detected problems in your environment. To date, personalized watch settings have been used to define how alerts are sent out for detected problems. This approach has proven to be cumbersome within large environments. Also, watch settings can’t account for important factors of detected problems, such as severity levels and tag-based filters. Alerting profiles… read more

Custom alerts: What you set is what you get

Dynatrace offers powerful artificial intelligence that automatically detects performance anomalies in your environment. When such problems are detected, Dynatrace sends out real-time alerts with correlated root-cause analysis details that facilitate problem resolution. There can be situations, however, when you don’t want to receive alerts related to certain known problems. For example, you may not want to be alerted each time your free disk space drops below 30%, or when a certain… read more

Lessons for Building and Monitoring Scalable ASP.NET Services!

Handling requests from Web Server (IIS) to Application Server (ASP.NET) can lead to performance and scalability issues. Often caused by misconfiguration — not scaling IIS and ASP.NET modules or custom code built without fully understanding what IIS & ASP.NET are executing behind the scenes — when handling requests. While this is not a new problem, it is a problem that software architects or lead developers often ignore. They ignore… read more

All you need to know to really understand the Node.js Event Loop and its Metrics

Node.js is an event-based platform. This means that everything that happens in Node is the reaction to an event. A transaction passing through Node traverses a cascade of callbacks. Abstracted away from the developer, this is all handled by a library called libuv which provides a mechanism called an event loop. This event loop is maybe the most misunderstood concept of the platform. When we approached the topic of event… read more
