When you see your home dashboard for the first time, you see load for the 3 Most Loaded Services in your environment. If any database services have been detected, you see summary information for those, too.
Default service information on home dashboard
The home dashboard is a great place to begin analyzing the performance of your application’s server-side services. You’ll find all the necessary information there, including any performance degradations. You can choose from a library of tiles to help you track specific services or group of services.
Click one of the Services-related tiles on the home dashboard to view the monitored services running in your environment. You can access performance details for each service and see how each service functions in your environment. You can, for example, see which other services each service calls, the hosts and platforms where each service runs, and which other services call a given service.
Dynatrace includes a separate tile that shows you healthy and unhealthy database counts. You can use it as a shortcut to the Services page to view all the database services running in your environment.
Extended service information on home dashboard
You can add additional tiles to extend and focus monitoring granularity for the services and databases in your web application environment by clicking Add tile on the home dashboard. In addition to service-monitoring tiles, you’ll find a range of tiles available for monitoring infrastructure, business functions, and other activities.
Our tile repository contains tiles dedicated to database services. If you want to inspect details for one of your databases, just add a dedicated Database tile to your home dashboard.
Single database tiles work similarly to single-service tiles. The difference is that they show commits and statements, which are more meaningful in conveying database usage.
