Requests per second in the Data Explorer

Hi Dynatrace team,


I'm trying to migrate some of my dashboards over to the new Data Explorer view but by doing so, I loose the functionality to see requests per second. Is there a way to configure this? If not, can you please add this to your road map? Our performance testing revolves around the number of requests per second we're expecting. It's also used to decide how we should scale our application when larger sale days are coming up. 




Thank you,

There is a way to configure this within the Data Explorer, using the 'Code' option. You are able to use the 'rate' expression to choose how the data is represented. More information on this can be found here: 


Additionally, you can use arithmetic with the metrics to manipulate the values. For instance, the lowest rate you can choose is Requests per Minute (using your example). We can then simply divide this metric by 60 to get our Requests per Second - as seen in the screenshot example below.


This functionality is being built for the standard 'Build' option within the Data Explorer, but has no confirmed date of release yet.


Hope this helps.

We'd really like to see this on the Build tab. Has this made it into the pipeline yet?




Hi Ryan,


Thank you for your response! This makes perfect sense. I apologize for missing this response until now.
