How webserver agent works?

Solution

Using http tools, we can find two dynatrace component from web page.
dynaTraceMonitor and dtagent_xxx.js


First we need to enable UEM feature.
Then we inject a javascript library into your web pages. This javascript library is called dtagent_xxx.js. This library is collecting data in browser such as page load time, errors on the page...
The data will be sent back to your AppMon environment. We send them to dynatraceMonitor first.

The dtcookie contains 2 things the session id and the AppMon application information. This information is used to keep track of which requests belong to a visit and to enforce the "visit coverage" in case you do not want to capture all the visits.

 

NOTE: From dynatrace 6.1 the dynaTraceMonitor and dtagent_xxx.js can be renamed in the UEM configuration section of the system profile.
