What is application topology discovery?


Application topology discovery is the ability to discover all components and dependencies of your entire technology stack, end-to-end. Application mapping is the process of mapping out these elements across your entire IT environment, through a visual graph, and then looking at how these applications are interconnected and dependent on each other. AI can be used to automate these actions.

Auto-discover your full technology stack in minutes


Dynatrace auto-discovers all the components and dependencies of your entire technology stack end-to-end. All you need to do is install a single agent.

  • Dynatrace OneAgent discovers all the components and dependencies in your environment, end-to-end.
  • Using this information, your entire application topology is visualized through an interactive map we call Smartscape.
  • Smartscape automatically builds visualizations with no need for manual configuration, additional instrumentation, or scripts.

Smartscape technology shows your all your application’s dependencies.
