How Dynatrace supports .NET applications

Dynatrace OneAgent instruments your .NET applications by placing trace statements at strategic locations in your code for code tracing, performance metrics, error detection, dependency tracking, and more.

Not every detected .NET application is instrumented by default. Dynatrace maintains a set of rules to instrument specific processes (for example, IIS application-pools, which you can extend with our own rules).
