Application performance monitoring (APM)
Get best-in-class APM from a category leader. Automatic and intelligent observability at scale for cloud native workloads and enterprise apps helps you ensure end-to-end hybrid cloud distributed tracing, optimize service performance, innovate faster, collaborate efficiently, and deliver more value with less effort.
What is application performance monitoring (APM)?
The term APM refers to the management of software application performance to ensure an expected level of service, as measured by performance metrics and user experience monitoring. APM solutions aim to detect and pinpoint application performance issues before real users are impacted.

Automatic monitoring of cloud-native workloads and microservices
Dynatrace automatically discovers and monitors dynamic microservice workloads running inside containers on Kubernetes, using OneAgent technology and open-source solutions like OpenTelemetry. Understand modern cloud technologies, from serverless to message queues, and how they are performing, how they communicate with each other, and immediately detect poorly performing microservices.

Unifying log analytics with PurePath distributed tracing and the speed and scale of Grail enables enterprises to dramatically improve application resiliency and user experience by seamlessly delivering on-demand, AI-powered answers for even the largest and most dynamic environments.
Powerful core technologies
Our technologies work together to understand your ecosystem and deliver precise answers through explainable, causation-based AI, with automatic discovery and topology mapping across billions of dependencies.
Our single agent technology deploys only once on a host and instantly starts collecting all relevant metrics along the full application-delivery chain. Install it and forget it—we take care of everything.
Our patented distributed tracing and code-level analysis technology automatically integrates high-fidelity distributed tracing with user experience data and data from open-source technologies including OpenTelemetry and code-level analytics.
Our dynamic topology mapping technology automatically identifies and maps interactions and relationships between applications and the underlying infrastructure. As new microservices come up or go away, the Smartscape topology map continuously updates in real-time.
Our massively parallel processing (MPP) data lakehouse is purpose-built to unify, store, and run lightning-fast analytics on observability, security, and business data with high performance and at scale.
Our AI engine automatically and continuously delivers precise answers. Davis® uses high-fidelity metrics, traces, logs, and user data mapped to a unified entity model to drive automation and deliver broader, deeper insights for modern cloud environments.
