dynaTrace adds virtualization and SOA capabilities to its app performance manager

dynaTrace 3.1 also gains REST interfaces for automation, reporting, and data exportation

dynaTrace software is offering Wednesday an upgrade to its "continuous" application performance management system,  featuring accommodations for virtualization and SOA, the company said,

Version 3.1 of dynaTrace release extends the company's PurePath technology for transaction-level visibility, the company said. Visibility is extended into virtualization environments, so users can understand the impact of virtualization on application performance.  The product analyzes how competition for shared resources impacts transaction response times.

DynaTrace also accommodates ESBs (enterprise service busses), enabling management of SOA applications and dependencies that decouple services.

A software development kit lets dynaTrace examine transactions that rely on non-standard remoting protocols, such as custom protocols built on Java or .Net and based on TCP/IP.

REST interfaces in version 3.1 automate repetitive tasks, such as regression analyses and architectural validations. Also, the interfaces allow existing tools to run reports and export data from the dynaTrace system. Hotspot visualization capabilities streamline diagnosis of root causes of performance bottlenecks.

"This latest release of the dynaTrace continuous APM system delivers a host of capabilities that extend the core capabilities that distinguish our third-generation approach to application performance management," said Bernd Greifeneder, CTO and co-founder of dynaTrace, in a statement released by the company.

Session and incident management capabilities are intended to reduce operational maintenance and help with lifecycle collaboration.  Multiple diagnostic sessions can be packaged into a single file to simplify collaboration.

APIs automate access to reports in formats such as XML, HTML, and PDF. The PostgreSQL database is now an option for customers who wish to store dynaTrace data for longer-term trending and capacity planning analysis.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
