Dynatrace monitors both the client (caller) and the server side of your WCF services.

  • For every WCF service we show all other monitored applications which make calls to the service.
  • With the backtrace function every caller is listed for the selected WCF service, plus you can see how many requests the callers made including failure rate.
  • For failed requests we show you the reason of the failure.
