We plan to deploy the new release of the Dynatrace Synthetic Portal on Wednesday, 5 April 2017 at 8:00 pm Eastern Time.

For detailed information about the release, see the Synthetic Monitoring Platform 2017 April Release Notes.

The release has these new features and enhancements:

  • Enhanced analysis workflows through data details to the waterfall chart for analysis and troubleshooting.
    • The new Test details page displays metrics critical to the user experience.
    • From the Test details page, you can drill down to the enhanced waterfall chart.
  • The new operations dashboards, available through the My Dashboards page, monitor the health of your tests. If a dashboard reveals performance problems, you can drill down to investigate the causes.
