New features and enhancements in the June 2017 Dynatrace Portal release
The Problem analysis page provides dynamic analysis of contributing factors for errors and performance anomalies. This page is available from the Waterfall summary when the test execution has errors or anomalies.
In the Raw scatter chart, you can select any two datapoints to compare in a combined waterfall chart.
The Raw scatter page now includes error data in the tables below the chart. You can now go directly to the Raw scatter page from the Operational summary page, and the Raw scatter page contains direct links to the Screen capture page (when SCoE is enabled) and the Waterfall summary.
The Contributor groups page is redesigned with a simplified workflow for creating and editing groups.
For information about the release, see the Synthetic Monitoring Platform 2017 June release notes.
Software Private Agent
Software Private Agent is now active for all active accounts. You can use Software Private Agents to monitor performance and availability of internal applications. Backbone tests can be configured to use these agents the same as public Backbone nodes, and they're scalable to run up to thousands of tests per hour.
You can use the new HTTP action in the Web Recorder to create and edit synthetic transactions that monitor URLs, RESTful APIs, and web services transactions. Combined with custom scripting support, it enables you to script more complex service transactions, such as extracting variables from an HTTP request (e.g. authentication token) and substituting it in a subsequent call.
The Web Recorder now provides all the primary features of the Windows Recorder, accessed from within the Dynatrace Portal.
Early Access Program
Integration with Dynatrace SaaS/Managed is available in the EAP Portal! Use a single platform to analyze application performance throughout your application’s full stack, down to each individual transaction across all layers and technologies.
Check out the new Test overview page in the EAP Portal. It's the landing page for drilldowns from Dynatrace Saas/Managed and is also available from the Operational summary page.
