Smartscape, our near real-time environment-topology visualization tool, is one of the most powerful features of Dynatrace. Smartscape visualizes your entire application environment. Smartscape auto-discovery delivers a quick and efficient overview of all the topological dependencies in your infrastructure, processes, and services, both on the vertical axis (where full-stack dependencies across all tiers are displayed) as well as on the horizontal axis (where all ingoing and outgoing call relationships within each tier are visualized).
Having access to a detailed topological view of your entire environment within only a few clicks gives you more control over your environment. This enables you to make better decisions, such as making an adjustment to your service architecture or infrastructure to improve application performance. By examining cross-tier and same-tier process, host, and service interdependencies, you gain a deeper understanding of how dependencies affect your applications' performance.
Also, through quick access to detailed drill-downs, you gain clearer insight into occurring problems. For example, Dynatrace might identify an issue with third-party dependencies and help you understand the impact of the issue on your application's performance.
