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). To learn the basics about process group monitoring setup (automatic deep monitoring, custom monitoring rules, and built-in monitoring rules), see Set up process group monitoring.
Dynatrace provides extensive .NET monitoring capabilities:
- Capturing OpenTelemetry traces
- End-to-end transaction tracing of requests to web services, remoting services, queues, and databases. Learn more about services.
- Garbage collection, process metrics, and much more.
- Always-on 24x7 production grade CPU profiling.
- OneAgent SDK for custom tracing.
See our supported technologies matrix for details on supported frameworks.
Dynatrace provides support for the following .NET runtimes.
|.NET Versions||Vendor released||Vendor End of life||Supported by Dynatrace until||First supported OneAgent version||Last supported OneAgent version|

With .NET Core 3.1, a new, optional feature called trimmed self-contained deployments and executables has been introduced to optimize the size of packaged applications. To successfully instrument your application with OneAgent, trimming needs to be turned off.
Dynatrace is committed to support each version according to its support lifetime.
The .NET Framework support policy can be found at Microsoft Support Lifecycle.
.NET Core is open source but officially supported by Microsoft. The support policy can be found on Microsoft Support Lifecycle.
