Dynatrace Davis® AI detects problems, underlying root causes, business impact, and SLO impact across your full-stack production deployments.

Classic user sessions page end-of-life
We are deprecating the classic User sessions page soon and replacing it with a more powerful page for session segmentation. To stay tuned, keep an eye on our release notes.
New features and enhancements
- For an indication of how fast a service consumes an error budget, you can now enable the burn rate visualization.
- You can now set up SLO alerts and burn rate alerts.
- Keep security on your radar! The spinning radar screen on Application Security pages lets you know that Application Security is actively monitoring your environment. For details, see Manage third-party vulnerabilities.

As announced over recent Dynatrace releases, the Early Adopter (EA) version of the Kubernetes events has been removed. The former opt-in for Kubernetes events analysis and alerting is now part of the General Availability (GA) Kubernetes events monitoring and is subject to DDU consumption.
Due to DDU consumption of the GA version, environments and Kubernetes endpoints using the EA version will no longer receive events, but you can manually reenable Kubernetes event monitoring. If you opted in to Kubernetes events integration for analysis and alerting in the EA release, you will continue to receive Kubernetes events with the GA release, but now subject to DDU consumption.
The current OS service monitoring page is now renamed to Classic Windows service monitoring.
We introduced a new OS service monitoring that can now monitor the availability of both Windows and Linux services. For more information, see OS services monitoring.

Due to DDU consumption of the GA version, tenants and/or Kubernetes endpoints using the EA version will no longer receive events, but can manually re-enable Kubernetes event monitoring. Former opt-in to the Kubernetes events integration for analysis and alerting will continue to receive Kubernetes events, by being automatically moved to the new GA version.
You can now filter a dashboard by a custom dimension. For details, see Add dynamic filters to a Dynatrace dashboard.
