Extend the platform, empower your team.
Troubleshoot and understand the behavior of live, cloud-native apps by adding logs metrics and snapshots in real-time directly from your IDE.
Dynatrace and Lightrun both tackle what is, by far, the most difficult problem about running a modern, cloud-native application - figuring out what exactly is going on inside your production environment.
Dynatrace’s Observability Platform helps developers become aware of problems quickly and get the “full lay of the land”, while Lightrun helps developers debug those problems easily and “slice and dice” line-by-line information out of production systems - without instrumenting new logs or telemetry. The ability to jump directly from an issue discovered via Dynatrace to the real, live production data that Lightrun delivers, makes troubleshooting faster and more ergonomic; once an issue was discovered using Dynatrace, Developers and DevOps can get line-by-line granularity by using Lightrun to add logs, metrics and traces at any given line of execution directly from the IDE - without the need for any operational process (no hotfixes, no redeployments).
The technical integration between the two platforms enables the practice of full-cycle observability: Dynatrace surfaces up problems in the application and/or infrastructure layers (such as performance degradations). Developers and DevOps can use Lightrun to debug and understand the issues using real-time, on-demand logs, metrics and traces. These pieces of information can then be consumed right inside of Dynatrace - closing the aforementioned cycle.
The integration between Dynatrace and Lightrun allows us to create full-cycle observability - which takes shape in the following form:
