AWS troubleshooting

What is AWS troubleshooting?

AWS troubleshooting is the process of diagnosing and resolving availability and performance issues in applications running on the Amazon Web Services infrastructure cloud. With more and more business-critical web applications and enterprise applications now running on AWS, minimizing downtime and ensuring good performance for these applications is a priority for many of today's development and operations teams. At the same time AWS troubleshooting is often complex and difficult because of the multiple components, services, and geo-locations involved in typical AWS application and infrastructure stacks.

Automatically discover cloud dynamics

AWS troubleshooting simplified

Application developers and operators looking for faster, easier AWS troubleshooting have a ready solution in Dynatrace. Available on the AWS Marketplace, the Dynatrace digital performance management platform provides the tools you need to maximize the availability and performance of your applications running on AWS:

  • Within minutes of a simple install, Dynatrace generates a complete, information-rich visualization of your application topology and dependencies, spanning across all the components, AWS services, and Availability Zones involved in delivering each application.
  • Leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence, Dynatrace automatically discovers the baseline performance attributes of your AWS applications; and then monitors and analyzes ongoing application traffic to automatically detect performance anomalies or degradation.
  • When performance issues are detected, Dynatrace automatically provides AI-powered AWS troubleshooting that pinpoints the root cause of the performance problem – down to the offending service, component, database statement, or line of application code.
  • Because Dynatrace records 100% of your application's transactions from end-to-end, your development and test teams can simply replay any problematic transactions – so your AWS troubleshooting never gets bogged down by the need to reproduce the issue.

Dynatrace supports monitoring and troubleshooting for all the major AWS services – EC2, EBS, ELB, S3, RDS, and others – as well as any of the containers, coding frameworks, and web and application server technologies that you run on top of your AWS platform (including support for IIS, Nginx, or Tomcat troubleshooting). For hybrid cloud applications, Dynatrace also supports OpenStack troubleshooting and troubleshooting for other cloud platforms.

Find the root-cause of performance problems in minutes, from poorly executing code, to redundant DB queries, to memory leaks or architectural bottlenecks.
