Public Synthetic locations
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. All public and private Synthetic locations can run browser as well as HTTP monitors.
Location release stages
Locations are released in one of these progressive stages: Coming soon, Early Adopter, or GA. Locations can also be Deprecated. 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'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 one or more locations, scroll to the bottom of the page, and select Copy IPs to clipboard or Download IPs to copy or download the associated IP addresses.
- Use the Synthetic locations API - GET all locations API call, which returns all the locations available for your Environment along with their IP addresses.
All public Synthetic locations are set to Coordinated Universal Time, or UTC.
Two Azure locations in Europe have been deprecated and removed; two new Azure locations have been created in their place.
On October 29, 2021, Microsoft Cloud Deutschland closed.
As a result:
- We have deprecated and removed two Dynatrace public Synthetic locations in Europe: Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) and Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign).
- We have created two new public Synthetic locations in their place: Frankfurt (Azure) and Berlin (Azure), respectively.
- Monitors that were assigned to the deprecated locations Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign) and Madgeburg (Azure Sovereign) and that weren't migrated by customers have been reassigned to the new locations, Frankfurt (Azure) and Berlin (Azure), respectively.
Summary of changes:
|Deprecated location||New and recommended location|
|Magdeburg (Azure Sovereign)||Berlin (Azure)|
|Frankfurt (Azure Sovereign)||Frankfurt (Azure)|
- If you’re a Dynatrace Managed user and your Cluster is protected by firewalls, you need to refresh the firewall configurations to let our new locations communicate with the Cluster ActiveGate.
- Similarly, applications monitored with Dynatrace Synthetic Monitoring might require a firewall configuration adjustment to allow incoming traffic from the new locations to reach the websites.
For help on determining the new addresses, see Location IP addresses.
