New dashboard charts for power users

The latest Dynatrace release includes some powerful new dashboard charting features for our power users, along with many improvements in stability and performance. In addition to these performance tweaks under the hood, we’ve streamlined the workflow for creating charts and raised the limit on metrics per chart from 2 to 5. Per metric, you can now chart data of the top 15 entities and browse metric values of up to 100 entities in the table beneath the chart. See example below.

Metric splitting and result-filtering based on dimensions

The most powerful new dashboarding feature that Dynatrace now offers is the ability to specifically define metric splitting for generic dimensions and to filter on those dimensions on the fly. With this approach, you can easily drill for the data you’re interested in—thereby making your charts more relevant.

What you get with this update

  • Streamlined charting workflow
  • More metrics per chart
  • Configurable metric splitting
  • Dimension-based filtering
