By default, Dynatrace gives you FullStack horizontal (who talks to whom) and vertical (what runs on what) dependency visibility as part of Dynatrace Smartscape! All without a single line of code or configuration change – just by installing the OneAgent
Seeing which processes make up the monolith has been an eye-opener for many teams that have done this exercise. “Oh – we completely forgot about the dependency to this legacy process we introduced 5 years ago!” – that’s a common thing you hear!
