I have an application which basically is a TCP based java application. So the application basically listens on a port which is supported by Netty and I wanted to track the traffic coming on it.
Basically every Request and response comes through that port. Is there support in DynaTrace for tracking the application performance and bottleneck for TCP based applications.
Yes, two broad options.
- Use the Generic (with Transactions) decode.
Will give you basic statistics, and try to guess the operation of the protocol from it's behavior.
- Write a script to use with the Universal Decode.
More difficult, but potentially better value. If you can write a script specific to the protocol being used. Not every protocol is suitable for Universal Decode.
