Component licensing characteristics
Depending on your deployment, certain Dynatrace NAM components require additional components for proper deployment. For example, for NAM deployment to function properly, NAM Server component must have at least one NAM Probe monitoring the traffic. As a result, you will be required to purchase licenses for accompanying components.
NAM Probe and NAM Probe Express are designed to analyze up to approximately 3.5 Gbps of TCP traffic, which is an equivalent of approximately 1.5 Gbps of HTTP traffic. Actual analysis throughput may vary depending on the traffic, the analysis types applied and the NAM Probe hardware.
