Analyzing DynaTrace session data for method level information

awadhwani

Problem
Statement - 1:

We
have switched over from Wily to DynaTrace for the Perfomance analysis of our
product. Being relatively new to this APM, we are currently finding it hard to
configure DynaTrace to best suit our needs. We are looking for configurations
which can help us achieve the following:

  • Provide
    specific java classes for monitoring and tracing.
  • Extract/Analyze
    method level trace for execution times from java perspective(min/max/mean et
    al)
  • Analyze
    interactions between different components of the product (IBM Websphere with 3rd
    party applications/databases etc.)

Current
Configuration:

Following
the steps mentioned in the DynaTrace documentation and startup guide, we have
added our IBM WAS cluster as the application server on the system profile.
Also, we have connected 2 databases the application interacts with for the
required data.

However,
while analyzing the database agent data, we suspect that it is not the entire
data for the duration of our load testing.

Any
help on tailoring DynaTrace to our needs is much appreciated.

Hi!

I'll try to help you.

1. You need to create custom sensor here for each method. Go to the system profile -> sensors -> add necessary classes\methods -> double click on them -> put checkbox Capture (it will capture the value) -> please this Sensor pack on relevant agent group ->made hot sensor placement (you mentioned your using WAS. If you have IBM java 1.6 its better to reboot application)

2. Put relevant method from PurePath -> right click -> create measure - Methods-> invocation

3. You can find it on Transaction flow

Amar,

You might also want to consider engaging the Dynatrace Expert Services team. They can be a great resource in helping refine your environment and ensure the maximum value from your investment. A few tips and hints on this forum are great, but perhaps a more time dedicated approach would be of benefit.
