A truly automated approach to monitoring Pivotal Platform

The dynamic nature of Pivotal Platform containers and microservices render traditional monitoring tools obsolete. The old way of manually installing different agent types, or collecting and correlating metrics, is simply ineffective.

Pivotal Platform overview

Deploying Dynatrace via the BOSH add-on


Makes full-stack, automated monitoring a platform feature


Ensures every app and microservice you deploy is always monitored


Eliminates the need to deploy, configure, and update agents


Scales across 100’s or 1,000’s of nodes and apps with ease

Monitoring containers: PAS & PKS

Dynatrace scales automatically to 100k+ hosts out of the box, making it ideal for highly dynamic, multi-workload microservice architectures like Pivotal Platform.

  • Automatically monitor containerized processes and apps, whether using cf push to PAS or pre-containerized on PKS
  • Real-time auto discovery and OneAgent injection of PAS and PKS containers without code or image changes- no developer involvement needed
  • Easily trace transactions across multi-cloud PAS and PKS deployments

DevOps Tool Chain

Supporting the DevOps tool chain

Maintaining developer choice of DevOps tools and application runtimes is a key tenet of Pivotal.

Dynatrace supports the broadest range of DevOps tool chain technologies to help teams accelerate release velocity while improving quality:

  • Wide integration with existing CI/CD tooling to shift quality checks to earlier in the pipeline
  • Faster feedback loops using AI-powered monitoring of key technical metrics throughout the development lifecycle
  • Enable autonomous cloud operations and self-healing

Dynatrace helps customers automate quality by building AI-powered quality gates along their pipeline to remediate problems early and allow release confidence that no bad code changes reach production.

"The level of inspection and monitoring is just not possible without the full interconnectivity that you have with the Dynatrace platform. The result is that you have a full fidelity of information about your stack, your applications, and your services all controlled on a single platform."

—Nima Badiey, Head of Business Development, Pivotal
