PM2 support for Node.js applications

PM2 is a popular watchdog/service manager for Node.js applications. Beginning with OneAgent v1.77, Dynatrace offers PM2 support for the monitoring of PM2 managed processes.

For more details on what PM2 provides, have a look at the PM2 GitHub repository.

You can start any Node.js application with PM2 and check its status:

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.
