App performance monitoring

Application performance monitoring is a critical practice in any DevOps team. Without it, DevOps cannot anticipate and prepare for performance issues when applications go into production. Minimizing the impact of performance problems on user experience maximizes the ROI on applications. To be effective, app performance monitoring must use application performance monitor tools that can provide the breadth and depth needed to monitor the entire application delivery chain. Full visibility is required to eliminate any blind spots that may adversely affect performance monitoring and root cause analysis.

Dynatrace is the market-leader in app performance monitoring tools and solutions. It offers a comprehensive suite of APM solutions for application insight, user insight, and app-aware network insight into application performance. Dynatrace tools work with a wide array of technologies to enable Java performance monitoring and .NET application performance monitoring for modern web applications, Citrix monitoring for enterprise applications, Linux performance monitoring for Linux server clusters, and more.
