Overall Satisfaction with Dynatrace Application Monitoring

Dynatrace Application Monitoring is primarily used by the Search team for our e-commerce platform. Dynatrace allows us to quantify the performance of our search features across various metrics. Over the past few years, this has been a key factor in improving our overall search experience for customers on our e-commerce platform.

  • Intuitive to use, quick onboarding
  • Simple setup and installation
  • Easy metric tracking
  • Metric tracking allows quick problem identification
  • Very heavy tool, requires high spec servers
  • Automation options are limited
  • Cannot customise for specific business needs
  • Overall, great improvement in our search service
  • Significant number of insights are formed from data generated by Dynatrace
  • We implemented a predictive service for monitoring using Dynatrace but it wasn’t very successful. Eventually discontinued.
On the whole, Dynatrace seems to be the go-to tool for most B2C application monitoring requirements. It provides a good range of capabilities, is easier to use than Cisco, can be setup very quickly, and the impact on the application in terms of insights is quite high.
The only negative is that it is quite a heavy application and cannot be run on lighter servers.
The support team is prompt, well-versed with the tool, and often even familiar with our business requirements (which is great!).
There are extensive forum discussions on most features and issues related to Dynatrace.
Almost every time we hit a roadblock, there is a post on an online forum that has addressed it.

Dynatrace Application Monitoring works well if you want to track performance of customer facing applications or sub-applications because of its robust monitoring metrics. It also handles high volume applications well.

On the other hand, if you wish to monitor performance of a back-end service, it might be better to build a monitoring service using Splunk.
