* Based on information from IBM Instana
AGENTS Instana agents use over 100 sensors. They automatically detect all middleware components involved in an application and the infrastructure on which they are running. All relevant data is automatically collected, continuously analysed and displayed. From the occurrence of a problem to its display it only takes a maximum of 3 seconds.
DRILL DOWN From the central infrastructure view, you can drill down into the processes running on each host to individual pods and containers. In the dependency map, you can see live dependencies and queries. Clear dashboards show failed queries, latency, CPU usage and other relevant information.
CONTEXT Instana captures real-time data exchanges (e.g., calls and their response times, logs, etc.) between components and provides context to the underlying services. This is done automatically by powerful AI and based on the observed queries. This way, the root cause of a problem is easily tracked and visible.


Instana is a German software company and was acquired by IBM in 2020. With its AI-supported APM solutions, it masters the challenges faced by operators of complex hybrid cloud environments. It therefore perfectly complements the DICOS portfolio.

Insights into Instana

INSTANT TRANSPARENCY Instana discovers all objects in the Kubernetes cluster and automatically monitors pods and containers, as well as the utilization of available resources. All queries are captured, profiles are created for each process, data is correlated and analysed. This way, all applications and services are monitored completely and to the second.
COMPREHENSIVE UNDERSTANDING Instana visualizes live the current dependencies of applications and services. You can see how components relate to each other and understand the cause and impact of a problem.
PRECISE INSIGHTS Automated monitoring, comprehensive data model, and powerful semantics, coupled with deep analytics, provide the insights you need. Instana enables you to understand all information in context and allows you to take targeted action.

We were already familiar with Instana from customer projects before it was acquired by IBM. We value it as a very innovative tool for gaining a complete overview of the application and server landscape. Whether in the cloud or "on-prem" - Instana offers all the functions for monitoring and problem analysis in increasingly complex IT landscapes. I am therefore delighted that we, as an IBM Business Partner, are able to present Instana to our customers!
