How to measure throughput in dynatrace

We use Loadrunner tool for performance testing, we did see Thoughput of the application in loadrunner was 4MB, new code was deployed which was part of Performance tunning, response time are very good comparing to earlier release. So but throughput for earlier test is 4MB and current test which has good respones time is 44MB, it is 11 times more comparing to earlier. Dev team was asking us show them throughput variance in dynatrace. So any one can help to show us how to measure throughput using dynatrace ?

In general in DT throughput means number of requests per second. What kind of throughput are you measure in MB?

But in loadrunner states 'throughput' amount of data which is being transffered in (MB/KB) from server to client. also we tried to compared the total no. of transaction from earlier and current results whether we have variation both are having the same no. of transaction only throughput and hit/secs are having variation. So Dev team is asking us to show from dynatrace where do you see the Throughput comparison in Dynatrace. So is there a way some one can help me to resolve this ?


Actually response size is not tracked by Dynatrace. At least not by default. Event if you will get body size from headers using custom request attribute this will not be full information. Your page is returning not only content from your server but maybe from cdn’s and 3rd party vendors. This will not be counted in such way. This metric should be took from frontend (there is transfered size) but I don’t think it can be exposed via api or usql. Another case is that loadrunner is not clicking over interface as headless browser so you will not see visits by virtual users.
