Overall Satisfaction with Dynatrace

Dynatrace is used by our Performance testing team for analysis after executing load tests. It has been integrated into our load testing pipeline in Jenkins. AppMon has been integrated to out load testing jobs in Jenkins. This enables other team members to self-serve and view AppMon reports immediately after executing load tests without logging in to the tool. We use all advanced features offered by the tool to monitor our front end and back end application to identify bottlenecks and optimize the performance for delivering a high performing system to our customers.

Pros

  • Analyze the number of database calls from each tier /service and optimize it by implementing caches.
  • Analyze the garbage collection on JVM and choose the most efficient go setting for your application.
  • Monitor vendor response time and its impact on your services.

Cons

  • Installing updates on AppMon.
  • Root cause analysis in case of memory leaks.
  • Some kind of analysis for thread dumps.
  • Understanding the customer impacts of the performance problems has definitely helped us in increasing our ROI.
This tool has served great for optimizing database usage, understanding external vendor latency and its impact, inter-tier errors and exceptions, and infrastructure limitations. It helps in identifying spikes and recommends tuning to improve the performance of our application.
