What is Apache?

Apache HTTP Server, commonly known as "Apache," has been the world’s most popular web server software for 20 years running. As an important part of the classic LAMP stack, Apache is a critical component in your web architecture that needs to be monitored.

With Dynatrace you monitor and visualize Apache metrics in the context of your web services that run on Apache. Keep an eye on Apache processes, CPU, and memory consumption.

Monitor your Apache server performance

With Dynatrace you get deep-level visibility into each of your web server process groups, including dependent applications and running services. When problems are detected, the Dynatrace anomaly-detection engine correlates host and network metrics with web-server specific metrics, busy workers, response sizes, and number of requests, to identify the root causes.

Apache monitoring with Dynatrace shows you all relevant information in an interactive infographic. Meta information like application version, configuration path, and used ports are included. See availability metrics and events like deployment changes and Apache restarts.

See the services and databases related to your web server, along with all key metrics.

See Apache-specific metrics (without plugins!)

Just install Dynatrace OneAgent to see the metrics you need. For Apache, Dynatrace shows you:

  • Requests
  • Response sizes
  • Busy workers

System performance metrics (CPU, memory, and more) are also available.

You get details about network traffic, TCP requests, and connectivity, along with quality metrics like retransmissions, round-trip time, and throughput.

See requests, response sizes, and busy workers.

Analyze response time hotspots down to the module level

With deep process monitoring enabled, Dynatrace analyzes the response time of each Apache service running within each process. Each service page enables you to analyze response time hotspots so that you can see what activities are consuming the most time for each service.

On the Response time analysis page you see the average response time observed during the analyzed time frame. The infographic also shows how much time is contributed by Apache modules like mod_proxy and others.

Analyze the response time of your Apache services.

Auto-detect your application environment and performance anomalies!

Dynatrace full stack monitoring extends web server monitoring beyond basic status metrics. With a single agent installed on your server, Dynatrace auto-detects all Apache web servers in your application environment. See the full picture of your application topology and identify dependencies between tiers in your application stack.

CPU saturation slowing down your database, your services, and your website? You'll receive a single notification that addresses the root cause of the problem, not multiple alerts for you to sort through and analyze. Using artificial intelligence, Dynatrace detects performance anomalies before they affect customer experience.

Dynatrace automatically detects and your application topology and visualizes it in an interactive map.

Visualize Apache service requests end-to-end

Dynatrace understands your applications’ transactions from end-to-end. Service flow shows the actual execution of each individual service and service-request type. While Smartscape shows you your overall environment topology, service flow provides you with the view point of a single service or service-request type.

The screenshot shows what the 'orange.jsf' web request of an Apache service triggers in the system and how each component contributes to the overall response time. As you can see, this perspective provides far more detail than Smartscape view. This degree of analysis enables you to understand the bigger complexities within your system.

“We’re intrigued by its capability to work almost out of the box as well as being able to monitor system aspects as well as application performance and user experience.”

Monitor real user performance without code changes

Dynatrace real user monitoring (RUM) collects metrics from your customers' web browsers and correlates it with server-side information obtained from Dynatrace OneAgent. Web browser data is collected by a JavaScript tag that is placed inside the HTML of your applications' web pages.

Dynatrace OneAgent JavaScript tag injection is performed automatically during installation. All you need to do to initiate injection is to restart your Apache processes following Dynatrace OneAgent installation. Dynatrace OneAgent identifies HTML content responses and automatically injects a small JavaScript tag into the head section of each page.

Dynatrace seamlessly integrates real user monitoring and synthetic monitoring:

  • Analyze response times and resolve JavaScript issues by seeing your website as your customers do!
  • Monitor the availability and performance of your web applications by recording synthetic monitoring using a simple point-and-click interface.

Dynatrace provides detailed insight into your users' browsing experience worldwide.
