Business impact analysis now provided with each detected problem

Automatic and multidimensional performance baselining of all your service requests is a powerful way to quickly detect abnormal behavior in your environment.

When service went live, we noticed a high response time from a downstream micro service, and the downstream service logs did not show any performance issue. In this blog, I’ll walk through the steps taken by our tech arch Neeraj Verma to analyze this issue in our production environments, which tools were u... (more)

Dynatrace Managed feature update, version 118

Manual configuration of IP addresses for cluster nodes To simplify the installation of Dynatrace within complex networks (where auto-detected IP addresses typically aren’t usable as endpoints for OneAgent traffic or the Dynatrace web UI), Dynatrace now enables you to manually specify public IP addresses for cluster nodes.

Spinning up a server in the cloud is just quicker and especially for very large corporations adding compute power is an issue. I have been in situation when “finding a plug for a new server” was an issue that made it on the agenda of executive meetings. This strategy is referred to lift and shift and... (more)
