Concurrent Visits vs Concurrent Users in DynaTrace

DynaTrace AppMon reports the number of concurrent users on an application but it doesn't explicitly say it. The ‘Active Visits’ or 'Concurrent Visits' reported by DynaTrace is a direct measure of the ‘Concurrent Users’.

The term “Concurrent Users” is a measure of active user sessions on an application at a given point of time (say exactly at 12:30 AM). We created an excel macro that can parse visits data and give us a table on the active users over time. We plotted a graph with this data which gave us the concurrent users graph and it matched exactly with the concurrent visits graph in DynaTrace.

Step-1 : Download the Excel Macro. Password to extract is

Step-2 : Export data from ‘Visits’ dashlet in DynaTrace and import them into the ‘Visits’ sheet in Excel.

Step-3 : Click the “Generate Graph Data” button under ‘Visits’ sheet.

Step-4 : Enter Granularity in Minutes in the user input box. Granularity is the interval at which Visits data will be parsed. ‘Graph_Data’ sheet will be populated with the analyzed data after this step.

Step-5 : Create a line graph for the data generated in ‘Graph_Data’ sheet. Your concurrent users graph should look like the below.

Note : ‘User Sessions’ in modern DynaTrace is the equivalent of ‘Visits’ in AppMon
