Automation is key in different phases of the Software Development Lifecycle. Builds are automated by using build-servers that also execute all unit and integration tests to ensure the basic quality criteria for a build before it gets deployed to the next stage. Functional as well as load-tests can be automated to test applications that come out of the build-environment to ensure full functionality, performance and scalability.
Both dynaTrace Server and dynaTrace Client expose management functionality via REST interfaces. These interfaces can be used to perform different tasks like Start/Stop Recording, Switch Profile Configurations, Trigger Memory/Thread Dumps, Generate Reports on both Client and Server-Side, ...
