Distributed transaction tracing and code-level visibility. End-to-end. Automatic.
A winning combination: High-fidelity data and code-level insights
Our patented PurePath technology captures and analyzes transactions end-to-end across every tier of your application technology stack, from the browser all the way down to the code and database level.
Only Dynatrace provides:
- Highest fidelity data feeding the Dynatrace Davis AI engine, so you get the most precise answers possible.
- Code-level visibility across browsers, web apps, mobile apps, web servers, Java, .NET, PHP, databases, middleware, mainframe apps.
- Automatic injection and collection of data, no code changes or scripting or sensor placement required.
Go from big picture to code-level detail with just a few clicks
The Dynatrace Smartscape topology model understands how everything is connected, up and down the full stack. That means you can drill down from a high-level view into an individual transaction and then down to code-level detail with just a few clicks.
High fidelity data results in more precise answers
Artificial Intelligence is only as good as the data that feeds it. The Dynatrace OneAgent captures much more data – more transactions and more deep-dive details - than gen 2 APM solutions that rely on sampling and snapshots. That’s how the Dynatrace Davis AI engine can identify the precise root cause of problems – no more guessing.
Automatic injection and data collection
With Dynatrace, everything is automatic. The Dynatrace OneAgent automatically and continuously discovers your environment, even auto-injecting into containers. The result? No matter what technologies you are using, collection and analysis of PurePath data is effortless.
“With Dynatrace PurePath® technology we can trace transactions and quickly identify where performance issues are occurring. In one case, we were able to decrease SQL load on our database server by 40% using only three development hours.”
“PurePath® provides us with objective, rational, intuitive and easy-to-use results. There’s never a question about what happened or why.”
Woodmen of the World
“Before Dynatrace, we had a difficult time explaining technical issues to the business team. With PurePath® we can use plain language to say, Okay, when you click on this, here’s what happens.”
How does PurePath work?
PurePaths are code-level traces that span an end-to-end transaction. Whenever a user initiates an interaction with an application (either real or synthetic activity), Dynatrace gives the transaction a unique ID. As the transaction launches requests, this ID "travels" with the requests on thread-local storage from tier to tier— so we know that all other methods on that thread belong to the same transaction. Ultra-lightweight code components capture relevant metrics which are then sorted and assembled into PurePaths.
