Node.js monitoring

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 in V8 JavaScript Engine

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

Node.js monitoring metrics at a glance. Dynatrace provides you with the most important Node.js metrics. Dynatrace Node.js monitoring lets you see the top contributors for response time, failure rate and CPU consumption. See how Node.js manages your memory and see the impact of Garbage collection on performance.

Understanding Node.js performance

While Node.js has a lot of benefits, there are potential performance pitfalls. Check out our free online eBook Understanding Node.js performance—no registration required—to get practical tips on how to hunt down memory leaks, CPU issues, and other problems to improve performance.

Don’t just let Node.js take the blame

Don’t Just Let Node.js Take the Blame

Even if Node.js shows errors, the root cause may be somewhere else. Read our blog post Don’t Just Let Node.js Take the Blame to learn the top two Node.js performance problems and how the right monitoring can pinpoint the actual cause.

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.

Analyze MongoDB response times and failure rates Break down MongoDB performance per Node.js service Detailed response time analysis for MongoDB queries

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.

Analyze Node.js application response times Find slow service methods that consume too much time Track all called and calling services

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.

Analyze failure rates by error type Code-level root cause analysis of errors Drill down into failed requests caused by source code errors 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 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.
