Announcing the @PagerDuty and @Dynatrace Integration | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Proactively Manage Application Performance with PagerDuty and Dynatrace

Proactively Manage Application Performance with PagerDuty & Dynatrace

We’re excited to announce a new integration with Dynatrace, a class-leading Application Performance Management (APM) solution. With Dynatrace’s PagerDuty plug-in, you can be notified about incidents when they occur. This enables a proactive APM experience and further reduced MTTR.

How it Works

Dynatrace monitors your entire application delivery chain. All of your transactions are tracked end-to-end, from user clicks to individual lines of code, using Dynatrace PurePath technology. Dynatrace constantly monitors your servers’ host and process health, and will automatically notify you if your business-critical transactions are running slower than normal with automatic baselines. Dynatrace comes with several incidents configured out of the box, but you can also create custom incidents to get as granular as you want. However, even with all of this information, alerts are only as good as how well you can respond to them. Too often, missed or ignored incidents can lead to severe consequences, so it’s important to make sure every incident gets noticed.

The PagerDuty plug-in allows you to easily send incidents to PagerDuty so you can be sure the right person is notified every time.

Getting Started

To get started, you’ll install the PagerDuty plug in. Once the plug-in is installed, select the incident(s) you wish to forward and set the ‘incident action’ as the PagerDuty plugin. Once set up, as soon as an incident is triggered, Dynatrace will forward the incident with all necessary details to PagerDuty.

Dynatrace-to-PD-incident

From the PagerDuty incident, you can drill down to Dynatrace to see the line of code affected and quickly isolate the root cause. Moreover, Dynatrace has dashboards for every role – Dev, Ops, and Business – so that everyone can look at the same picture and source of truth, eliminating the back and forth common to most incident war rooms.

The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security polic...
DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality. Sponsors of DevOpsSUMMIT at CloudEXPO will benefit from unmatched branding, profile building and lead generation opportunities.
