Propel SRE with observability and security insights

  • Drive production reliability

    Reduce risk and ensure any changes made to applications, services, and infrastructure with critical dependencies are evaluated against key metrics, SLOs, and security data with the Site Reliability Guardian app.

  • Reduce MTTR

    Combine answers from observability data with automation workflows to intelligently orchestrate remediation and incident management workflows. Understand the root cause of issues to triage and resolve them quickly.

  • Power proactivity

    Leverage Service Level Objectives (SLOs) and error budgets to proactively monitor critical metrics and take action before any violations occur. Keep all your SLAs in check and the business happy.

Common SLOs we monitor

Dynatrace can monitor a wide range of Service Level Objectives (SLOs), including:

Common business SLOs

  • Availability: Is the service available for users?
  • Engagement: How engaged are the users?
  • Conversion: What is the rate of users reaching my business goals?
  • User Satisfaction (ApDex): What is the satisfaction level with the performance of my app from 0-1?

Common performance SLOs

  • Utilization: Average time resources are busy servicing work
  • Success Rate: Ratio of success vs. total requests
  • Response time: Time it takes to service a request
  • Saturation: Resources that are most constrained
  • Traffic: Measure of how much demand is being placed on your system

Common SLOs for mobile apps

  • App adoption: Ratio of daily users vs. total users
  • Availability: Rate of requests with a valid response
  • App rating: Ratings based on Android or iOS Store
  • Response time: Rate of login requests faster than 100ms
  • Crashes: Crash rate on officially supported devices
  • Success rate: Rate of successful requests
