Processes consuming too much CPU?

Ever wonder why your processes consume too much CPU in your production system? Dynatrace can tell you!

Look at any Java or .NET process that’s monitored by Dynatrace. Click the View detailed CPU breakdown button at the bottom of the CPU chart. You’ll then see a chart that shows you how much process CPU each service consumes. The great new feature that we’ve added is the Show hotspots button that’s available for each consuming service. One click and you see the method-level CPU hot spots for each consuming service. This feature is currently only available for Java and .NET, but we’re busy extending it to other technologies.

And the best news of all? This is always enabled and available in your production system. No configuration required!

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.
