Deep dive application monitoring and performance management
Monitor and optimize application performance and business transactions at scale with gap-free code-level data
See all performance metrics in real-time
Application performance management (APM) is critical to business success today. Dynatrace automatically sees and analyzes every single user transaction, all the time. All relevant metrics, environment changes, and application deployments are shown in real-time.

- Every single click and page load
- Response time and code-level hotspots
- Failure rate and root causes of errors
- Throughput and cluster distribution
- Request and response sizes
- All database statements
- All Apache and Nginx module timings
- Restarts, crashes, & deployment changes
- Apdex score
- CPU and memory usage

Follow every single transaction, end-to-end
Dynatrace uses patented PurePath Technology® to capture timing and code-level context for every transaction, across every tier, without gaps or blind spots.
- Drill into all services and components called upon with each user interaction.
- Analyze response times and find hotspots at the method level.
- Understand the impact of methods and database statements on user experience using our unique Service backtrace feature.

Download our podcast Demystifying database performance optimizations—no registration required—to hear Dynatrace database experts point out database performance hotspots and optimizations that you probably have never heard about.
In this blog post, Diagnosing common database performance hotspots, Dynatrace performance expert Andi Grabner discusses what you can do to avoid the most common database performance problems—bad database access patterns, chatty service calls, synchronization issues, excessive logging, and more.
Dynatrace shows you the root causes of problems!
Dynatrace detects and diagnoses problems in real time—pinpointing root causes all the way down to the offending lines of code—before your customers are affected by them.
- Proactively detect availability and performance problems across your stack.
- By applying big data analytics to billions of dependencies within your application stack, Dynatrace directly pinpoints the components that are causing problems.
- Visual replay of problem evolution helps you understand how problems evolved over time.
"After deploying a new release, we spent over 30 hours trying to find a performance problem. Once we found the issue, it only took us 30 minutes to fix it. With Dynatrace, finding a similar problem would only take us minutes to identify, saving us precious time and resources."
Automatically discover and map applications and infrastructure
Dynatrace APM automatically detects and visualizes your web application and its dependencies end to end—from website, to application, to container, infrastructure, and cloud. Our application performance management solution works out-of-the-box with zero configuration.
- Dynatrace Smartscape provides an interactive map of your application across all layers.
- See how all components relate to and communicate with one another.
- Our unique performance tool was designed for cloud environments where instances are rapidly created and deployed, making it a perfect fit for microservices environments.
