Dynatrace offers a global network of public Synthetic Monitoring locations out of the box. With Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring, you can run your monitors from public locations that are based on the infrastructure of these major cloud providers: Alibaba Cloud, Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure.
Note that you can also create private Synthetic locations within your own network infrastructure.
Location release stages
Locations are released in one of three progressive stages, Coming soon, Early Adopter, or GA. Learn about the relationship between the stages:
|Coming soon||Location is already created; we're performing final performance tests before making the location available.|
|Deprecated||Location is about to be removed; you can continue using it for already created monitors, but you can't assign new monitors to a deprecated location.|
|Early Adopter||Location is production ready and fully supported. Its future availability depends on the interest the location receives and on vendor-dependent factors.|
|GA||Location is generally available and fully supported.|
Location IP addresses
If your security policy requires you to add a location IP address to a list of allowed addresses or you need to know this information for other purposes, you can determine a location IP address in one of the following ways:
- When you create or modify your monitors, all the locations and their IP addresses are displayed in the table on the Frequency and locations page. Select a location or locations, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select Copy IPs to clipboard or Download IPs to copy or download the associated IP adresses.
- Use the Synthetic locations API - GET all locations API call that returns all the locations available for your Environment along with their IP addresses.
Two Azure locations closing, two new Azure locations created
On October 29, 2021, Microsoft Cloud Deutschland will close.
As a result:
- We will close two Dynatrace public Synthetic locations: Frankfurt (Azure) and Magdeburg (Azure)
- We have created two new public Synthetic locations and an easy path to transitioning your monitors to the new locations
- If you have monitors assigned to the closing locations, your action may be required.
To see how these changes may affect you and how we have minimized the impact on you, expand the following section.
We have created two new public locations:
- Frankfurt (Azure)
- Berlin (Azure)
We have renamed the affected locations:
- former Frankfurt (Azure) has been renamed Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign)
- former Magdeburg (Azure) has been renamed Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign)
We will deprecate the affected/renamed locations in May 2021, at which time:
- Monitors still assigned to Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign) or Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) will continue to be executed (at least until the beginning of September 2021), but
- You will not be able to select Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign) or Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) to run new monitors
Summary of changes:
|Old name||New name||Platform||Status|
|Magdeburg||Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign)||Azure||to be deprecated|
|Frankfurt||Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign)||Azure||to be deprecated|
|-||Berlin||Azure||new and recommended|
|-||Frankfurt||Azure||new and recommended|
Migrate your monitors
We encourage you to assign the monitors currently executed from Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign) and Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) to other locations. The new Berlin and Frankfurt Azure locations would be your natural first choice, but you can, of course, select other locations.
- Go to Synthetic and select a monitor.
- On the monitor page, open the browse menu (...) and select Edit.
- Select Frequency and locations.
- Clear the Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign) check box and select Berlin (Azure) or another location
- Clear the Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) check box and select Frankfurt (Azure) or another location
- Select Save changes.
Or use the API for configuration at scale.
Starting September 1, 2021, we will update monitors as follows:
- Any monitors still assigned to Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign) will be reassigned to the new Berlin (Azure) location
- Any monitors still assigned to Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) will be reassigned to the new Frankfurt (Azure) location
Update your firewall rules
We are making the transition as easy as possible for you, but there are things we can’t do ourselves:
- If you’re a Dynatrace Managed user, and your cluster is protected by firewalls, you need to refresh their configuration to let our new locations communicate with the Cluster ActiveGate.
- Similarly, applications monitored with Dynatrace Synthetic may require a firewall configuration adjustment to allow incoming traffic from the new locations to reach the websites.
