What can I learn from service quality reports?

Each service quality report summarizes the monitoring insights that Dynatrace has compiled over the past week. Each report offers an overview of your applications, services, infrastructure utilization, performance problems, and the impact of performance problems on your customers.

While Dynatrace itself is an ideal tool for day-to-day monitoring purposes, reports give you insights into hot spots in your environment and make it easy to share insights with others.

To view service quality reports, select Reports from the navigation menu and then click Service quality from the left-hand menu. Service quality reports are chronologically arranged, with the most recent report appearing first. Select any report you're interested in to view further details.

Reports are structured in such a way that even non-technical team members can understand them. Reports include four sections: overall environment, applications, services, and infrastructure. For each report section we calculate a score to show you how well your monitoring stack components have performed over the past week.

Overall Dynatrace score

Your overall Dynatrace score is an average of the application, services, and infrastructure scores for your environment. For example if your individual scores are Applications: 85, Services: 99, and Infrastructure: 94, then your Dynatrace score is 92 (278/3).
