Locate bottlenecks in your JRuby code

Dynatrace enables you to dig into your applications and find hotspots at the code level. Identify slow services by investigating service response times and failure rates per service-method.

Understand the root cause of your JRuby problems

Dynatrace directly pinpoints components that are causing problems with big data analytics of billions of dependencies within your application stack.

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 and automatically discovers all log files.

See all JRuby performance metrics in real-time

  • Dynatrace captures every transaction, across every tier, without gaps or blind spots.
  • Pre-configured dashboards provide all relevant metrics down to SQL statement and code level.
  • In under five minutes the Dynatrace agent automatically discovers your entire JRuby application.

Automatically discover and map applications and infrastructure

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

  • Dynatrace Smartscape provides an interactive map of your application across all layers.
  • See how all components relate to and communicate with one another.
  • Our unique solution was designed for cloud environments where instances are rapidly created and deployed, making it a perfect fit for microservices environments.
Dynatrace maps all the dependencies between detected components and presents them with Smartscape technology.

Monitor database query executions

Dynatrace tracks and inspects all SQL statements and NoSQL queries sent by your JRuby 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, PostgreSQL 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 your JRuby problems!

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

  • Detect availability and performance problems across your stack proactively.
  • Pinpoint components that are causing problems with big data analytics of billions of dependencies within your application stack.
  • Replay the problem evolution and understand how problems evolved over time.
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.


“If something isn’t the way it is supposed to be, our DevOps Engineers have the full picture within one tool. We get to the root cause much quicker and only involve team members that are actually needed for fixing.”

What is JRuby?

JRuby is an implementation of the Ruby programming language atop the Java Virtual Machine, written largely in Java. Being tightly integrated with Java, JRuby allows the embedding of the interpreter into any Java application with full two-way access between the Java and the Ruby code (similar to Jython for the Python language).

Dynatrace monitors and analyzes the activity of your JRuby applications, providing visibility from the browser through all the tiers down to the individual database statements.

Dynatrace supports all common Java frameworks
