Since PurePath is not possible to save and reload in Dynatrace as in AppMon, how to best do this?
Use case is to compare a PurePath now with an old PurePath that is no longer visible in Dynatrace due to the retention time.
Screenshots are the best Ive come up with so far. Anyone else doing something better??
Solved! Go to Solution.
Depending on what you want to compare you can utilize the API to extract the relevant metrics and compare them automatically.
Hmmm, one example is load testing. We have very good information and details in the PurePath but when trying to compare with tests done some weeks ago there is no data due to retention time settings.
Perhaps I can get PurePath data out using REST API but how to store and display it later to easily compare with live PurePaths??
Currently is not possible to extract/import Purepath to compare. But as Patrick mention, the best practice is to compare the timeseries of the service.
With this comparation, you will get long time retention information (test running days/weeks/months/years ago) so you will compare the new test with one that is meeting your performance requirements. If some slowdowns, failure rate increase.. happens in the new test, you are able to drill down to the Purepaths of this degraded load test.
