Cloud Foundry is a platform as a service (PaaS) that consists of a set of open source tools that help you run applications at scale. Once the platform is set up and running, your developers can push applications to it. Health management, fail-over, and load-balancing of application instances are provided out-of-the box.
Dynatrace supports full-stack monitoring for Cloud Foundry (i.e., monitoring the application layer as well as the infrastructure layer) through the Dynatrace OneAgent BOSH Release. The Dynatrace OneAgent BOSH Release allows you to deploy OneAgent to your Cloud Foundry cluster VMs, including Diego cells and others.
If you don't have access to your Cloud Foundry infrastructure layer, Dynatrace provides the option of application-only monitoring via the buildpack approach. The supported Cloud Foundry buildpacks allow you to monitor applications running on Pivotal Web Services, IBM Cloud Foundry, as well as SAP Cloud Platform.
Further, Dynatrace allows you to connect your Cloud Foundry foundation to leverage automatic detection of additional data from the Cloud Foundry API. For example, Dynatrace automatically detects organizations related to your Cloud Foundry foundations.
