New Docker image leverages bootstrapper to download OneAgent installer

With OneAgent version 1.127 we’ve introduced a new Docker image that leverages a bootstrapper to download a preconfigured OneAgent installer instead of an installer that is baked into the Docker image. The new Docker image automatically fetches the latest version of Dynatrace OneAgent. If you’ve specified a default OneAgent install version for new hosts and applications in your OneAgent updates settings, the Docker image will download the defined default… read more

Dynatrace Managed feature update, Version 126

Improved LDAP integration To improve support for large LDAP directories, we’ve changed how we handle groups and users in LDAP. For Dynatrace installations that are migrated from earlier versions, we now only show those LDAP groups that have configured access rights for Dynatrace. To use another group, just create a new group in Dynatrace and give it the same name as a pre-existing LDAP group. With this approach, the new… read more

DockerCon 2017 – A Tale of Three Demos

DockerCon 2017 was three days of jam-packed action. As each day closed, I took some time to reflect with my colleagues on the hottest elements of our demos and discussions. We ended up with three solid demo videos covering key aspects of our solution for Docker environments. Auto-discovery and the power of Smartscape At previous employers, I’ve demonstrated a number of products, but I’ve never focused… read more

Docker container monitoring in a hypercomplex world: notes from DockerCon 2017

We’ve just wrapped up at DockerCon and I wanted to share some of the key highlights from such an electric and high-energy event. Our booth was absolutely jammed, as we showcased our unique approach to monitoring Docker environments, caused by a word-of-mouth surge. Here’s my take: #1. Nearly everyone at the event is moving to Docker in a big way for its flexibility and scalability. #2. Complexity of container environments and… read more

Monitoring Docker container environments

If you’re responsible for running and monitoring Docker environments, you likely have two main concerns: (1) are the applications and services deployed on your clusters performing well, and (2) are your clusters healthy and properly sized for running your apps with the required workload? Monitoring dockerized applications, not just containers The metrics you get from your orchestration tool (e.g., Kubernetes, Openshift, or Mesos/Marathon) or by Google’s cAdvisor can help you to… read more

Optimize Mesos container management with Dynatrace

Application development and delivery methods have undergone radical changes in recent years to improve scalability and resiliency. Container images are the new build and deployment artifacts that are used to ship and run software. While startups have long been comfortable experimenting with and embracing new technologies, even large enterprises are now re-architecting their software systems so that they can benefit from container-enabled microservices architectures. With the launch of DC/OS,… read more

Does your Liquid Infrastructure float? Or are you sinking in what you don’t know?

With so many new web technologies available, one might assume that things are getting easier for the average Operations-minded DevOps professional, but they aren’t. In fact, things are becoming more difficult. It used to be that a little background in shell scripting and some basic knowledge of infrastructure—whether it be networking or servers—could get you a long way. Then came virtualization and the Cloud and software-defined everything. Today you find… read more
