Monitor the performance of your Varnish setup
With Dynatrace you get deep-level visibility into each of your web server process groups, including dependent applications and running services. When problems are detected, the Dynatrace anomaly-detection engine correlates host and network metrics with web-server specific metrics, busy workers, response sizes, and number of requests, to identify the root causes.
Dynatrace shows you all relevant information in an interactive infographic. Meta information like application version, configuration path, and used ports are included. See availability metrics and events like deployment changes and Varnish restarts.
Just install the Dynatrace Agent to see the metrics you need. For Varnish, Dynatrace shows you:
System performance metrics (CPU, memory, and more) are also available.
You get details about network traffic, TCP requests, and connectivity, along with quality metrics like retransmissions, round-trip time, and throughput.
With deep process monitoring enabled, Dynatrace analyzes the response time of each Varnish service running within each process. Each service page enables you to analyze response time hotspots so that you can see what activities are consuming the most time for each service.
On the Response time analysis page you see the average response time observed during the analyzed time frame.
Dynatrace full stack monitoring extends web server monitoring beyond basic status metrics. With a single agent installed on your server, Dynatrace auto-detects all Varnish setups in your application environment. See the full picture of your application topology and identify dependencies between tiers in your application stack.
CPU saturation slowing down your database, your services, and your website? You’ll receive a single notification that addresses the root cause of the problem, not multiple alerts for you to sort through and analyze. Using artificial intelligence, Dynatrace detects performance anomalies before they affect customer experience.
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.
Varnish is an HTTP accelerator designed for content-heavy dynamic web sites as well as heavily consumed APIs.
