Easily configure detection of your environment’s custom application services

We’ve simplified the process for defining and managing custom-service monitoring in your environment. Custom services are application services that can’t be detected by Dynatrace out-of-the-box because they’re built on non-standard frameworks or technologies. With Dynatrace custom service detection, you can now define any method, class, or interface as the entry point of a service. Once configured, custom services are monitored alongside all the auto-detected services in your environment. The latest enhancement … read more

Request attributes: Simplify request searches & filtering

Dynatrace tracks all requests from end-to-end and automatically monitors the services that underly each transaction. The performance and attributes of each request can be analyzed in detail. You can even create custom, multi-faceted filters that enable you to analyze call sequences from multiple angles. With such advanced request filtering, Dynatrace enables you to slice and dice your way through your requests to find the proverbial “needle in a haystack.” Until … read more

Enhanced filtering for Service flow and response time analysis

Modern web applications typically feature complex service architectures that can process millions of different types of requests. With each unique request behaving slightly differently and triggering a slightly varied service flow, it can be a real challenge to analyze the performance and behavior of individual requests. The latest filtering enhancements on all Dynatrace service-analysis pages help you navigate the complexity of your application’s service architecture—enabling you to find the proverbial needle … read more

Code-level visibility for ASP.NET life cycle events

There is more happening between IIS and ASP.NET than you might imagine. When IIS.NET is run in integrated pipeline mode there is back and forth between IIS and .NET that can cause IIS modules to be executed during the ASP.NET authentication phase (this may alternatively be caused by your own code or even a database statement). Ruxit now provides visibility into ASP.NET life cycle events (requires Ruxit Agent v1.95 or above). Note that in the .NET service example below ASP.NET is listed in the Top findings section, … read more

Service-level backtrace shows sequence of service calls

Ever wonder which services send requests to one of your back-end services? More than just knowing which service directly calls one of your services, what about the sequence of service calls that leads up to each request, all the way back up to the browser click that triggered the sequence of calls? Dynatrace service backtrace can provide you with exactly this information. Say for example that you’re analyzing a SQL … read more
