Dynatrace AppMon monitor

The Dynatrace AppMon monitor provides information on the availability and performance of software applications, and the impact on user experience, as measured by Dynatrace AppMon, an APM tool.


  • In some earlier versions, this is referred to as the Dynatrace monitor.
  • For the supported server versions, see the Integrations section of the System Requirements guide.

Dynatrace dashboards and dashlets

Using Dynatrace AppMon'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 AppMon 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 AppMon are available in LoadRunner Professional during the performance test run.
