Microservices and container monitoring

Thousands of microservices, one perfect harmony.

Microservices give you flexibility, hyperscale and room to grow. However, increased complexity is the price you pay for this freedom.

Dynatrace AAA monitoring has been designed to keep highly dynamic architectures in perfect harmony – so that business can move fast and stay innovative.

AAA monitoring by Dynatrace

Automatic dependency analysis

Simply install the Dynatrace OneAgent on the hosts running containers and – and voilà, Dynatrace automatically discovers your microservices, how they communicate with each other and with other components.

Automatic performance baselining

Automatically pin down all baseline metrics related to the performance of your microservices – with its dynamic, multidimensional baselining Dynatrace learns the normal performance of your application.

Automatic root cause analysis

Immediately detect poorly performing microservices, see the entire evolution of their degradation and how they impact the user experience – with a single notification, Dynatrace automatically identifies the root cause of the problem.

Native support for Docker containers

Docker provides numerous benefits, like portability, lightweight footprint, minimal overhead, improved sharing, and component reuse. On the downside, monitoring containerized processes can be a real pain.

Dynatrace provides native support for Docker. Containerized processes are monitored transparently, as if they were running directly on your hosts.

Dynatrace enables you to leverage all of Docker’s benefits without the downsides. Plus, setup requires no configuration.
