Monitor application and cluster health in highly-dynamic OpenShift environments.
“We’re pleased to have Dynatrace join Red Hat’s OpenShift ecosystem as our first digital performance management platform powered by Artificial Intelligence. To provide full insights into the hosts and applications deployed with OpenShift from our customers, we work closely with leading technology companies like Dynatrace that provide powerful, innovative and complementary solutions. We look forward to continued collaboration with Dynatrace as an important member of Red Hat’s OpenShift ecosystem.”
Chris Morgan, Technical Director – Red Hat OpenShift Ecosystem
Based on Docker and Kubernetes, OpenShift by Red Hat is the next generation PaaS for developing, deploying and running containerized applications conveniently and at scale. OpenShift comes in a variety of flavors:
OpenShift Origin is the upstream community project that powers all OpenShift offerings.
Martin Etmajer, Technology Lead at the Dynatrace Innovation Lab, talks about how to monitor microservices on OpenShift.
OpenShift by Red Hat is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that loads and drives applications at scale. OpenShift container cluster management—powered by Docker and Kubernetes—provides complete application lifecycle management functionality and DevOps tooling. Out of the box, Dynatrace provides full monitoring insights into the hosts and applications you deploy with OpenShift, including:
Dynatrace automatically discovers all containers running on OpenShift and presents you with a real-time view of all the connections between your containerized processes, hosts, and cloud instances. Dynatrace provides deep insights into your dynamic deployment environment and ensures that everything works as designed.
“Dynatrace is the best tool for monitoring our fully Dockerized application stack. Out of the box, Dynatrace offered deep insights into our hosts, Docker containers, and the services they provide. Through its integrated real user monitoring capabilities, Dynatrace provides continuous visibility into application health, from our end users’ perspective.”
Optimize the configuration of OpenShift applications with new insights into cross-service communication. Dynatrace identifies related containers and automatically visualizes all dependencies throughout your entire application environment.
Highly distributed applications produce extensively distributed log files. When dealing with such applications, log analytics and alerting are often not enough on their own to explain the root causes of detected problems. This is why Dynatrace provides you with the ability to replay and understand failures throughout your OpenShift clusters.
