With Dynatrace, install just a single agent only once per host to begin collecting all relevant metrics along 100% of your application-delivery chain. Install it and forget it—we take care of everything.
With just a couple of mouse clicks, Dynatrace OneAgent discovers whatever processes you have running on the host. Based on what it finds, OneAgent automatically activates instrumentation specifically for your stack, as well as auto-injecting tags into web application pages. New components get auto-instrumented on the fly.
“All we had to do was install that one single agent and seconds later we had a perfect picture of our entire system.”
“OneAgent automatically detected all our different services at once and showed the dependencies that we wanted to focus on. That felt like an instant fast-forward compared to other tools.”
“Dynatrace’s ease of deployment and auto-detection capabilities reduce the installation effort to almost zero.”
OneAgent is the only agent on the market that can go out and collect metrics throughout every tier of your application stack automatically. In under 5 minutes, you get all the (operational and business) performance metrics you need from front end to back end and everything in between—cloud instances, hosts, network health, processes, and services. If you’re running it, OneAgent is capturing data about it.
How can you tell the business impact of an infrastructure failure? Or how each service contributes to application performance? The OneAgent approach was designed to collect front-end and back-end metrics into a single unified data repository. Having a complete, directly connected set of in-context data is what enables Dynatrace to connect the dots among business metrics, real user experience, and operational performance, down to the code level.
Once you install Dynatrace OneAgent, you’re set for life. Migrating to the cloud? No problem. Introducing new stack technologies like microservices and containers? Got it. The single agent approach was designed specifically with hyper-dynamic environments in mind.
Dynatrace OneAgent is essentially one binary file comprising a set of specialized services that have been configured specifically for your monitoring environment. These services collect metrics on various aspects of your hosts, including hardware, operating system, and application processes. The agent can also monitor specific technologies (Java, Node.js, .NET, and more) in greater detail by injecting itself into those processes and monitoring them from the inside. This provides you with code-level insight into the services that your application relies on.
