Request attributes: Support for .NET method argument capture

Dynatrace recently introduced the ability to capture Java method arguments and use them as request attributes. This valuable new service-monitoring feature enables fine-grain service filtering and performance analysis. By defining request attributes for your service’s requests, you can enable advanced filtering of service requests across all Dynatrace analysis views. Once configured, request attributes help you to better understand the relationships between performance, errors, and application-specific metadata in your requests. read more
