Dynatrace Managed release notes version 1.182

New features and enhancements

Receive notifications when your Cluster ActiveGates become outdated

Cluster ActiveGates serve various purposes in large-scale deployments. A Cluster ActiveGate acts most commonly as a proxy that routes traffic between externally deployed Dynatrace OneAgents and your cluster. Cluster ActiveGates are also used for Synthetic Monitoring and Real User Monitoring. As Cluster ActiveGate is a critically important component of your deployment, it's important that it remains up-to-date with the latest features and security improvements. Since version 1.182, Cluster Management Console provides the following notifications when Cluster ActiveGates become outdated:

  • Warning icon on respective tiles and a warning banner beneath the menu bar when a Cluster ActiveGate is more than 5 versions behind the cluster version Update status tile available at Cluster ActiveGate details page
    Update notification
  • Error status on respective tiles and an error banner beneath the menu bar when a Cluster ActiveGate is earlier than version 1.154
    Cluster Management Console with deprecated Cluster ActiveGates

To update a Cluster ActiveGate, download the installer from Cluster Management Console and run the installation. For more information, see How to install a Cluster ActiveGate.

What's next?

In upcoming releases we'll enable a single-click update option for Cluster ActiveGate and automatic updates, to save you time and effort. Read Environment ActiveGates can now be updated with a single click on our blog to learn about this feature, which is already available for Environment ActiveGates.

Other changes

  • Managed JVM-based services were updated with -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 -Dsun.jnu.encoding=UTF-8 arguments during startup to better support logging messages.
  • Insufficient disk space cluster event message was updated. Every time it is triggered, it sends an e-mail notification to cluster administrators.
  • For large LDAP deployments, the configuration test was optimized to provide feedback in a reasonably short time.
  • Upgrade time of a single-node cluster deployment was improved.

Cluster Management Console

  • "Login failed" event is not generated for log-in failures. (APM-202443)
  • User accounts can now be sorted by "Assigned groups". (APM-202681)
  • Expired trial environments will now be correctly unblocked when upgrading them to standard environments. (APM-206775)

Mission Control

  • Cluster version is now correctly checked during upgrade - necessary for enabling/disabling Log Monitoring free tier. (APM-202729)
  • Link from the invitation email should always point to latest GA version, not to the one from email generation time. (APM-204249)

Cluster

  • Fixed: user preference for session replay toggle on environment level were not preserved. (APM-198022)
  • Fix inconsistencies in count value units. (APM-202244)
  • On Azure dashboard - unhealthy services were not marked red on a list of app services and functions. (APM-202734)
  • There might have been exception screen displayed in rare cases for .net process. (APM-203288)
  • Fix problem with correct identification of PaaS host. (APM-204374)
  • Fix scaling problem with plugin-origin charts that contain series based on the same timeseries. (APM-204486)
  • DB Insights, most time consuming Oracle statements - per SQL Query graphs would not match the totals displayed for this query in the table row. Graph data would be trimmed to match the UI timeframe. While the table data would match an expanded timeframe covered by the metric store. So the graphs would display less data than was summarized in a table row. The timeframe expansion performed by the metric store is a result of lowering data granularity. Eg if 1-hour granularity is available for a given timeframe and the requested timeframe would not match 1-hour slot boundries exactly, the timeframe would be implicitly expanded by the metric store to cover all the partially matching timeslots. So requesting a 1 hour 30 minute timeframe where 1 hour granularity is available 2 hours' data would be returned. (APM-196732)
  • Network overview - Fix misleading message about applied filters. (APM-204460)
  • Fixed problem with accessing agents deployment status with limited access rights. (APM-206189)
  • Fix problem with no plugin metrics visible for host plugin with only keyCharts defined (and no keyMetrics nor charts) (APM-206387)
  • For HTTP monitors assigned to management zone save button was disabled. (APM-205029)
  • Problem occurred while viewing HTTP monitor data, and searching for a different one (in global search). After clicking to see different monitor data, page was not refreshed. (APM-205033)

Installer and Upgrade

  • "/opt/dynatrace-managed/tmp-bin" is not cleaned anymore if any Dynatrace process using this directory is not about to be restarted during upgrade (APM-208937)

RUM

  • Don't consider the RUM default application in application detection for browser monitors (APM-203087)
  • Session replay and rage detection settings are no longer removed with configuration updates via Web Application Configuration rest API. (APM-204148)
  • Corrected link to Android instrumentation documentation. (APM-207338)
