Monitoring Active Transactions running at threads in Pods on Kubernetes called as "X-Active" is required.

There are dominent competitors against Instana in Korea Market.
All of them are providing the feature called as "X-Active" that monitors active transactions running in pods on Kubernetes whether or not their state are normal or pending and provides kill button on the dashboard. It's so useful for DevOps and SRE teams to resolve issues regarding transactions not normal. Adding this feature in Instana makes its value way better to All around the World.

    Active threads are monitored and managed by APM tools, which are running on pods in K8S or other environments such as VMs. The thread is performing specific transactions connected with database so that SRE or DEVOPS can resolve the issue before the transaction is completed.
