Hello @Manal C.

Below linked page lists all environments, technologies, and versions that can be monitored with Dynatrace. This list is continuously growing, so check back often.

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/deploy-dyna...

The Dynatrace OneAgent SDK enables you to instrument your application manually to extend end-to-end visibility for frameworks and technologies for which there is no code module available yet.

Hi,

As PowerBuilder is a thick client application you most likely don't want to use a OneAgent/SDK to monitor it, but monitor it using OpenKit.

https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/deploy-dyna...

This would allow you to only license the DEM usage of the application, instead of having to install OneAgents everywhere and treat it like a server. It'd also give you session tracing instead of seeing it as services.

If you don't have the resources to write a wrapper for calling OpenKit from PowerBuilder you can reach out to our services department for help.
