WebSphere Java metrics obtained directly from the Dynatrace probe

Turbonomic Dynatrace probe does not currently support Heap and GC metrics specifically for WebSphere. The supported method for collecting this data is through the native WebSphere probe. If the Dynatrace probe support WebSphere metrics fully then we do not have to configure multiple data sources simplifying our existing data pull from only one Application Performance Management (APM) tool. If we desired to effectuate any changes to an application via Turbonomic influence then we most likely would need to have the WebSphere probe directly which is an advanced maturity level that most business are not there yet.

    Furthermore Dynatrace gathers database metrics as well. Are all metrics imported from Dynatrace target into Turbonomic?

    There is no indication in the documentation Monitored Resources that a Dynatrace collected metric for WebSphere Java is not aggregated and presented in Turbonomic. In fact documentation states:

    Application Component


    Heap is the portion of a VM or container’s memory allocated to individual applications.

    This commodity applies only to Java applications.
