Dynatrace is now offering automatic code level insights on applications that use Go. Dynatrace will automatically discover and monitor Go components so that developers do not need to inject code into microservices or change the code of Go applications.

Dynatrace believes this capability will help organizations that use high profile cloud platforms that were built with Go. It enables DevOps teams to focus on optimizing applications rather than troubleshooting them.

“Go is lightweight, suited to microservices architectures and fast becoming the most utilized programming language of the cloud. Yet most monitoring tools are blind to Go which has left organizations having to do manual development and configuration to get any sort of insight,” said Steve Tack, SVP of product management at Dynatrace. “The Dynatrace platform is built for the cloud and now automatically detects and shines a light into Go components, ensuring that Go isn’t creating an enterprise cloud blind spot.”
