Dynatrace adds Cassandra monitoring via Thrift

In Agent version 1.61 we introduced support for the communication protocol Thrift.

Thrift is a cross-platform cross-language communication framework that behaves very much like web services and so therefore automatically show ups in Dynatrace monitoring. It’s used by a wide variety projects, most prominent among them, Cassandra. Thus you can now see Cassandra databases as a service, see traffic into Cassandra from your Java application’s perspective, and analyze Cassandra query code performance.


Dynatrace offers a fully-featured, free trial period. No credit-card is required, so just visit our Dynatrace cassandra monitoring page, sign up and have Dynatrace monitoring up and running within five minutes!

Those who know me know that I'm passionate about 3 things: rock climbing, physics, and performance. I've worked in performance monitoring and optimizations in enterprise environments for the better part of the last 10 years. Now as a Product Manager I am doing my best to build those experiences into Dynatrace.
