Request attributes: Numerical values, aggregations, & deep object access

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

PurePath visualization: Analyze each web request from end-to-end

Dynatrace OneAgent enables you to track each individual request from end to end. This enables Dynatrace artificial intelligence to automatically identify the root causes of detected problems and to analyze transactions using powerful analysis features like service flow and the service-level backtrace. Dynatrace enables you to efficiently find the proverbial needle in the haystack and focus on those few requests (out of tens of thousands) that you’re interested in. read more

Improved design & functionality of Service pages

Over the past months, we’ve added numerous enhancements to our Service overview pages. To maximize the value of these enhancements, it became necessary to build an entirely new page design. We’re now proud to present all the new views and features that the enhanced Service overview page design has to offer. Service overview page As you can see from the image below, the service overview page has received a major… read more

Custom anomaly detection for key requests

A key feature of Dynatrace is its ability to continuously monitor every aspect of your applications, services, and infrastructure and to automatically learn the baseline performance metrics related to these components. Dynatrace also automatically learns the baseline response times and failure rates of all requests that are vital to the success of your business. Now, for the first time, you can adjust anomaly detection settings for individual web requests. By understanding the… read more

Service flow now includes applications and user actions!

Earlier this year, we introduced Service flow view to visualize service requests from end-to-end, making it possible for you to see the sequences of service calls that result from each individual web request. While valuable, Service flow view lacked the ability to correlate its insights with the applications and user actions that initially trigger these sequences. We’ve now enhanced Service flow so that its insights are presented within the… read more

Mute monitoring of problematic service requests

Ruxit monitors all server-side server requests end-to-end. When the performance or success rate of a specific request degrades, Ruxit raises an alert. However not all high-load requests are important and not all slow requests should raise alerts. A good example of these are heartbeat requests. Heartbeat requests commonly arrive in high volume and frequency. These requests can distort the overall median response times of services. Such requests can trigger response-time… read more

Pin important service requests to your homepage

Certain service requests in your environment may be significantly more important than others. Certain requests may be so critical to your understanding of the performance of your application that they deserve special consideration with a dedicated dashboard tile. This option is now available to you! To create a tile for a specific service request: Open the menu and select Transactions & services. Select a service from the list. On the service… read more

View top requests during analysis time frame

Have you ever wondered which requests your service processed during a specific time frame? For example, to better understand the reason behind a spike in response time? Ruxit now automatically shows you the Top web requests that a service processed during the selected analysis time frame. With this approach you can identify any unexpected requests and see if a specific request received more load than usual. To view list of requests processed… read more

Cleaner URLs and resource-request settings

ruxit now automatically removes session IDs, IP addresses, and UUIDs from detected URLs to avoid unnecessary Web request variants, promote user privacy, and make the Top web request contributors lists for each service more meaningful. You can now also define lists of image and binary extensions so that ruxit can easily identify image- and binary-resource requests. To change Service settings: Click the Services tile on the homepage. Select a service. Click Edit on the toolbar. Select Web… read more
