We are doing a POC for WebSphere Integration Bus since the WebSphere Enterprise Service Bus is being replaced with this product. Once we connected dynatrace we realized that connecting to CICS via CTG is not currently supported. We own the CICS monitoring agents for dynatrace and currently utilize this integration. When is dynatrace going to support using CTG as a connection method in IIB?

That's fantastic news. We currently monitor Websphere Enterprise Service Bus (WESB) which is being deprecated by IBM. We also have the Dynatrace CICS agents and monitor the entire flow from WESB through CTG and into CICS. We have to make a decision on our enterprise direction for a service bus quickly and not being able to trace IIB through CTG into CICS with Dynatrace is definitely a decision point. If Dynatrace can add CTG support to the IIB agent, this will definitely help our decision making process.

We are going to make a detailed research on that topic (feasibility, effort, etc.), which will be done in the next weeks.
We are planing to support the described scenario with the Q1 2017 AppMon release, if the research doesn't uncover some road blocks.
