As applications become more complex due to increasingly elaborate business requirements, application performance management (APM) software must evolve to keep pace. The adoption of new technologies like NGINX and Docker drive market trends for application architecture, development, deployment, and performance testing. Each APM application used for performance monitoring, analysis, and testing must adapt to support these new technologies. For example, an advanced APM application should support Docker container monitoring as well as provide transaction visibility through the entire application delivery chain.
Boost performance with a Dynatrace APM application
Dynatrace, a leading APM application provider, offers a comprehensive suite of solutions for application performance monitoring, analysis, and testing. These include:
Dynatrace Application Monitoring — With this APM application, you can perform end-to-end transaction monitoring to capture application transaction details for performance analysis. It incorporates Dynatrace’s PurePath Technology® to monitor code-level details such as method calls, arguments, and return values. You can also use it to perform SQL monitoring as it captures SQL statements and SQL database query times. Dynatrace Application Monitoring works with popular languages like Java and PHP to provide Java performance monitoring and PHP performance monitoring.
Dynatrace User Experience Management — Using this APM application, you gain an integrated view of user experience across all types of Web and mobile applications. You can use it to monitor and correlate user actions with application performance. Additionally, it allows you to visualize the real-time impact of application performance on site usage as well as user conversion or departure click-paths. Dynatrace User Experience Management is a valuable tool for understanding your users and maximizing your revenues from user-facing applications.
Dynatrace Data Center RUM — This APM application enables you to monitor and analyze the performance of components in enterprise application and infrastructure tiers in the data center. It captures the performance of Web servers such as NGINX performance, as well as SQL database performance, packaged application performance (such as Oracle EBS), and network element performance (such as load balancers). You can use Dynatrace Data Center RUM to correlate the impact of network performance on application performance and user experience.
