Node.js monitoring

Quickly find Node.js errors in your applications.

Find bottlenecks and fix Node.js errors fast

  • Analyze each web request

    Dynatrace analyzes all requests to the services that support your Node.js applications—without requiring you to change your source code. Dynatrace also tracks server-side requests that are dependent on other services.
  • Pinpoint problems at the code level

    Dynatrace monitoring enables you to pinpoint problems in your source code.

    Dynatrace automatically inspects the performance of queries to your MongoDB databases.

  • Track down problems

    Dynatrace monitoring covers your entire Node.js stack. By monitoring heap memory and suspension metrics for V8 JavaScript engines, Dynatrace enables you to track heap memory usage and growth in your production environments.

See all Node.js performance metrics in real-time

  • Dynatrace captures every transaction, across every tier, without gaps or blind spots. Even Node.js event loop metrics are included in detail.
  • Pre-configured dashboards provide all relevant metrics down to SQL statement and code level. Therefore overview about dedicated Node.js metrics is given as well as general insights.
  • In under five minutes our OneAgent automatically discovers your entire Node.js application stack.

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. Inspect failure rates, database response times, and execution frequencies of all database read/write operations.

Locate bottlenecks in your application code

Node.js shines in modern web-connected applications that need to gather data from different sources, consolidate it and push it to many clients in real-time. In such multi-tier environments it’s getting more and more difficult to locate the root cause of performance issues.

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

Track service requests per minute and understand which components call—and which components are called—by each service. Your ability to find and resolve performance issues will improve significantly with Dynatrace Node.js monitoring.

Dynatrace tells you the root cause of Node.js 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 by receiving relevant Nodejs metrics continuously.
  • Dynatrace directly pinpoints components that are causing problems with big data analytics of billions of dependencies within your application stack.
  • A visual replay of problem evolution helps you understand how problems evolved over time.

Correlate host-process log data with problems.

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 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.

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.

  • Leverage actual data throughput and quality of network connections between communicating hosts and processes.
  • Gain direct access and search the log content of all your system’s mission-critical processes.
  • Relevant Nodejs logging messages or networking anomalies are factored into the root-cause analysis of problems.
