Services configuration

Use the Services tab in Dynatrace Server Settings to configure various service communication settings. To access it click Settings > Dynatrace Server > Services.

General tab

Configure ports that the AppMon Server listens on for Clients and Collectors, optional bind addresses, if SSL or non-SSL or HTTP tunneling (see Configure Proxies) is allowed.


The AppMon Server comes with a Server-embedded Collector used only for test purposes. Your license type enforces Server-embedded Collector use. Select the Allow Agent Connections to dynaTrace Server check box to use the Server-embedded Collector. This requires an AppMon Server restart.

Use an AppMon standalone Collector service / daemon for normal load.

See Set up Communication Connections for information on service configuration.
