Monitor and optimize Java application performance for your entire application stack, including databases and services

Java monitoring

See all Java performance metrics in real-time

Java monitoring metrics at a glance. Dynatrace shows you system performance metrics like CPU, responsiveness, memory, and worker processes. Dynatrace provides you with the most important Java metrics. See the top contributors for response time, failure rate and CPU consumption. See how Java manages your memory and see the impact of Garbage collection on performance.

Follow every single transaction, end-to-end

Dynatrace uses patented PurePath Technology® to capture timing and code-level context for every transaction, across every tier, without gaps or blind spots.

Auto-discover and map all applications and business transactions-flows of your Java application continuously end-to-end. Dynatrace PurePath technology captures timing and code-level context for every transaction, across every tier, without gaps or blind spots. The service flow visualizes service requests end-to-end. Understand where service calls originate in your Java code.

Monitor any JVM, server, or application

The Dynatrace UI isn’t bloated with metrics. We show you what really matters and allow you to drill down into more detailed metrics when you need them. Dynatrace instruments your Java applications at the bytecode level. It makes no difference if your applications are console applications or web services; we provide all the monitoring features you need.

Dynatrace provides Java monitoring for applications running in Tomcat containers as well as JBoss, WildFly, GlassFish, WebSphere, and other servers. Of course we also support other JVM languages like Scala, including frameworks such as Akka and Play.

Monitor database query executions

Dynatrace tracks and inspects all SQL statements and NoSQL queries sent by your application. There is no better way to solve a database problem than to have the SQL statements in question directly on screen. See execution frequencies, response times, and long-­running queries to JDBC-­backed databases like MySQL, SQL Server, PostrgreSQL and Oracle, as well as NoSQL databases like Cassandra and MongoDB.

Database metrics reveal execution frequencies, response times, and long-running queries. Get an overview on database response times, failure rates, most time consuming requests, and slowest requests. Find out which operations are taking the most time & see CPU metric without a local agent installed. Retrieve the SQL execution plan from any SQL statement ... ... and see execution plan details like estimated rows, cost, and CPU cost.

Dynatrace tells you the root cause of Java problems!

Dynatrace detects and diagnoses problems in real time, pinpointing the root cause down to the offending code before your customers are even affected.

Dynatrace pinpoints the root cause of performance issues automatically. Leverage instant replay to understand how a problem evolved over time. Dynatrace smart baselining learns what normal looks like for your application. Eliminate false positives and constant noise regarding response times, failure rates and throughput. Dynatrace diagnoses problems that are often difficult to pinpoint, including database, memory, threading and CPU issues. Correlate host-process log data with problems.


“After deploying a new release, we spent over 30 hours trying to find a performance problem. Once we found the issue, it only took us 30 minutes to fix it. With Dynatrace, finding a similar problem would only take us minutes to identify, saving us precious time and resources.”

Java enterprise performance eBook

Industry’s #1 Java Performance Reference

Senior leaders from the Dynatrace Labs and Center of Excellence teams have collaborated to develop the only definitive reference on practical, day-to-day application performance management. This exclusive online eBook Java enterprise performance is the most comprehensive Java performance resource available anywhere.

Locate bottlenecks in your application code

Dynatrace enables you to dig into your applications and find hotspots at the code level. Locate problematic methods with CPU or network bottlenecks within the execution call stack.

Your ability to find and resolve performance issues will improve significantly with Dynatrace Java monitoring.

The response time distribution charts show you how response times are distributed across web requests. Analyze the response time of Java services and see the contribution of method hotspots to code execution. See how database statements influence response times. Examine Java method hotspots. Analyze requests and see their stacktrace.

Automatically discover and map applications and infrastructure

Dynatrace automatically detects and visualizes your web application and its dependencies end to end: from website to application to container, infrastructure and cloud.

Dynatrace maps all the dependencies between detected components and presents them with Smartscape technology.

Get the full picture including network health and log file analysis

Dynatrace provides a clear picture of all inbound and outbound process connections over your network interfaces (both physical and virtual) and automatically discovers all log files on your monitored hosts and processes.

Measure quality of inbound and outbound communications per process. Log file analytics out-of-the-box: no configuration required. Dynatrace automatically identifies log entries related to performance issues.

Integrate with continuous integration and delivery

Dynatrace integrates seamlessly with popular CI/CD systems, making performance-driven development and delivery a continuous process.

Integrate Dynatrace seamlessly into your delivery pipeline to accelerate continuous innovation.
