Dynatrace Monitor

The Dynatrace monitor provides information from the Dynatrace server about monitored applications.

Dynatrace dashboards and dashlets

Using Dynatrace's dashboards and dashlets you can get insights into your full application stack, in the form of deep transaction tracing, synthetic monitoring, real user monitoring, and network monitoring.

A dashboard represents a specific view of one or more Dynatrace data sources. A dashboard is comprised of dashlets, the building blocks of a dashboard that contain specific types of data (in the form of a graph or data tables).

Note: Only dashlets that are represented as graphs in Dynatrace are available in Performance Center during the performance test run.
