Databases finally have a place of their own

Because databases are often at the heart of applications, we’ve decided to give databases a dedicated section within Ruxit. You may have noticed a change to the Services page. As you can see below, the Services page no longer includes databases. This allows us to make the Services and Databases pages more specific to their respective use cases. As a first step in this direction notice that the filter bar and context actions have … read more

Service backtrace now includes referrers

Recently we introduced service backtrace functionality to enable you to see which request or browser click led to a specific service request or database statement. We then extended this functionality to include backtraces for SQL statements. Now we’ve extended the visibility even further by introducing HTTP referrers to Backtrace view. You’ll now find information about referring pages for all Web requests that contribute to a backtrace. This extends your visibility beyond … read more

Dynatrace automatically learns the baseline reference values of all your database services and notifies you when response-time degradations occur or error rates increase. As the number of database service calls is typically much higher than the number of web service requests, and because database-service response times are on average … read more
