Why we love Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May

Just as Dynatrace has redefined monitoring for Cloud Native, Micro-Services and Web Scale DevOps through Dynatrace SaaS & Managed, we’ve also been innovating on our Dynatrace AppMon & UEM solution. Thanks to feedback from our users and our passionate engineering teams, Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May (= Version 7) clearly shows the biggest innovation leap that I can remember since my start at Dynatrace nine years ago. Here are some of my personal highlights:

  • Full UEM Visit and User Action Waterfall Diagnostics in the Web Interface, including Visual Complete, Speed Index and Automated Web Performance Optimization Recommendations
  • Full PurePath, Method Hotspots, Exceptions and Database Diagnostics in the Web Interface
  • Custom Web Dashboards with flexible grid layout, markup language and workflow support
  • Full Infrastructure Monitoring support including Database Agents in the Web Interface
  • Extended Time-, and Deployment-based PurePath Problem Pattern Detection
  • Application Performance, Baseline and Deployment Overview for faster Diagnostics
  • Easy hand-off between Business, Operations and Engineering without leaving the browser
  • And much more!

To show you how cool we think this release is, and how proud we are about Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May, we recorded the following role-play highlighting how Dynatrace AppMon supercharges all involved teams that must deliver high quality software faster:

How we speed up innovation for Dynatrace AppMon?

At Dynatrace we are fortunate to have the world’s largest engineering team in the APM (Application Performance Management) space. In recent years, we made significant advances when redefining monitoring with Dynatrace SaaS and Managed (formerly known as Ruxit). Last year we started the convergence of used technology, architecture and how we organize our engineering teams.

The two most prominent areas to benefit from this convergence are the shared OneAgent technology stack, as well as the exchange in used technology when it comes to our web interfaces. As you can imagine, implementing a single OneAgent technology for both AppMon and Dynatrace is more efficient than doing it twice. For web dashboarding, some of the widgets and features, e.g. PurePath, Waterfall or Custom Dashboarding, that have been available either on AppMon or Dynatrace have found their way into both products, making them not only look alike but also function alike. These changes have boosted our overall development output significantly, allowing us to deliver new features faster on both AppMon as well as for Dynatrace.

Now let me highlight a couple of the advances that will make your life easier. If you do not yet have Dynatrace AppMon simply get your own Dynatrace AppMon Personal License.

Empower Your Frontend Developers!

Our UEM (User Experience Management) Team has introduced new Visual Complete as well as Speed Index. Additionally, our OneAgent for Apache can also deliver Native Module insights. And all this information, including full Waterfall and JavaScript Error Diagnostics, is now available in the web interface:

PurePath For Everyone!

Since I started at Dynatrace I was always in awe of PurePaths. However, for nine years I had to use the Dynatrace AppMon Client to analyze the full execution path, method hotspots, detecting database problem patterns, or when viewing Exception Stack Traces. Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May will change that forever, as doing so will no longer require the Dynatrace AppMon Client. See for yourself – it’s all there – including an automated problem pattern detection feature that works on every single PurePat. Sweet!

Collaboration Redefined!

Since the first inception of Web Dashboards in Dynatrace AppMon 6, we made constant improvements based on users telling us they want to be as flexible with the dashboarding as they are in the Dynatrace AppMon Client when collaborating and diagnosing data. Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May delivers on that request through the most flexible web dashboarding implementation I have ever seen. In addition to the flexible layout, sharing and collaboration are at the center of what has been implemented. The “cherry on the cake” is the new markup tile that allows you to place nearly any type of content where you like, which also enables custom workflows:

Guided Application Analytics From Baseline Violation to Root Cause!

Dynatrace AppMon 2017 May provides a great new entry point for application owners. The new Application Overview not only shows us usage patterns and performance split by front end (End Users) and back end. It also shows us when new application versions were deployed, and whether there are any baseline violations, errors or any infrastructure-related problems. If a problem is detected you have the one-click option to dive deeper into PurePath, Infrastructure, Transaction Flow or UEM Data:

Application Owners see performance, usage and baseline violations for frontend and backend services and how it correlates with new deployments. Just a click away are all deep dive analytics options

Better Applications with every Deployment!

Dynatrace AppMon 6.5 introduced a new automatic problem detection feature for PurePaths. AppMon 2017 May brings this to the next level and gives us a time-, and deployment-based overview of problem patterns that you have in your application. With this it is easy to spot problems that happened under certain load or that got introduced with a recent deployment. To put it in the words of one of my colleagues: This transforms our users from “Problem Hunters to Quality Fanatics”
