Mobile app monitoring
Optimize mobile app performance
You don’t get a second chance to make a good first impression with customers. When it comes to mobile app development, delivering exceptional user experience right from the start isn’t just a matter of monitoring app crashes. To deliver the best possible mobile app experience, mobile app developers need to see the full picture, including how well backend services are performing.

Understand how and why apps crash
With the ever-expanding number of potential device-type, language-resource, and device-resolution combinations, it’s impossible to test your app under all scenarios. Crashes are practically unavoidable.
Dynatrace crash occurrence statistics show you the platforms and other criteria under which your app crashes most frequently. Crash occurrence statistics are often great early indicators of the root causes of issues.
Mobile crash reports enable you to filter crash results based on multiple dimensions, such as app version, OS type, OS version, device-type, jail-broken status, and more. Crash reports even provide downloadable symbolicated/deobfuscated stack traces with detailed user device information, including the steps that led up to the crash, allowing you to quickly reproduce crashes and pinpoint their root causes. Percentages of happy, crash-free unique users are also listed. Dynatrace provides insights for:
- Top Crashes
- Affected users
- Percentage of crash-free users
- Crashes per minutes
- Crash reports
Dashboard overview of crashes
User actions that led to a crash (aka breadcrumbs)
Mobile user session details, including carrier, mobile device, application version, OS version, location, and more

Monitor your app’s performance
When it comes to mobile user experience, performance is key. You need to understand the level of performance that your customers perceive—whether they’re using an Android device or the latest iPhone. Dynatrace shows you:
- Top HTTP requests
- Number of HTTP requests
- Error rate
- HTTP requests size
- Request time
Poor HTTP performance may indicate an inefficient communication strategy. It can be a challenge to find the right balance between too many HTTP requests and payloads that are too large—both lead to poor user experience. High HTTP error rates are often the result of backend infrastructure issues. Dynatrace helps you identify such bottlenecks.
See the full picture, including your backend services
Both native and hybrid mobile apps rely on backend service infrastructure of ever increasing complexity. Dynatrace automatically discovers your entire application stack with Smartscape technology. Findings are visualized in an interactive map that you can click through to access performance statistics for individual components.
With Smartscape, you see all the interdependencies within your environment—from your apps all the way down to the underlying services, processes, hosts, and datacenters. By correlating events across all monitoring perspectives, Dynatrace is able to pinpoint the root cause of each detected problem in your application-delivery chain.
