Real user monitoring: Support for Fetch API is now available

During the dawn of the web 2.0 era, back when web sites first began to evolve into the dynamic web applications that we know today, asynchronous web requests were sent via the XMLHttpRequest (XHR) API (commonly known as Ajax).

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
