Dynatrace Plugin - how does it work?

Jump to solution

My question is specifically around HOW the silk timer is tagged to the request in Dynatrace.  

With the Dynatrace plugin enabled, any request that has a TIMER, as shown below, will show up with a purepath name matching the timer name.

With the plug-in disabled, the generic URL is used for the purepath name.   

WebPageCustomRequest ("GET", "https://URL/PRAjax.action",   WDCJ009, "PatRev3_1Fac5Pop_PatLvlSrch.action", WDCJ010);

WebPageCustomRequest( in sMethod : string,

                      in sUrl     : string,
                      in formBody : form optional,
                      in sTimer   : string optional,
                      in formUrl  : form optional ): boolean;

Is it something inserted in the header?  I'll be asking Dynatrace support this same question and will report back what I find.

Thanks!

Don

Hi Don,

Silk Performer's dynaTrace integration works by adding dynaTrace information in the headers to tag the requests.

For example:

X-dynaTrace:+VU=1;PC=.53;ID=258554980;NA=Click,+IMG,+id=ext-gen6+(#1)

When the dynaTrace plugin is enabled you should be able to view this header information in the "Out Header" tab of the TrueLog.

Best Regards,

Neil
