Play Framework monitoring

Performance monitoring and capacity management for Play Framework applications

What is the Play Framework?

Play is an open source web application framework, written in Scala and also usable from Java, which follows the model–view–controller (MVC) architectural pattern.

Dynatrace monitors and analyzes the activity of your Play Framework applications, providing visibility down to individual database statements.

  • Visualize service requests end-to-end in your Play instances

    Dynatrace detects your applications’ transactions from end-to-end and shows the actual execution of each service through our Service flow.

  • Get CPU hotspot analysis for background threads

    Dynatrace shows you where your Play applications consume CPU in background threads, schedulers, or other proprietary services.

  • Understand the impact of issues on customer experience

    While monitoring your Play Framework apps, Dynatrace learns the details of your entire application architecture automatically.

Gain visibility into your Play Framework applications

Dynatrace monitors and analyzes the database activities of your Play applications, providing you with visibility all the way down to individual SQL and NoSQL statements. Just a few of the performance metrics you will see on your Dynatrace dashboard:

  • JVM metrics
  • Custom JMX metrics
  • Garbage collection metrics
  • All database statements
  • All requests
  • Suspension rate
  • All dependencies

In under five minutes the Dynatrace OneAgent automatically discovers your entire Play application.

Visualize service requests end-to-end in your Play apps

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.

Understand the impact of issues on customer experience

While monitoring your Play Framework applications, Dynatrace learns the details of your entire application architecture automatically.

  • Artificial intelligence automatically identifies the dependencies within your environment.
  • Dynatrace detects and analyzes availability and performance problems across your entire technology stack.
  • By making root cause analysis, Dynatrace visualizes how problems evolve and how they impact the user experience.
