Kubernetes is a next generation platform for deploying and running containerized applications at scale. Dynatrace OneAgent is container-aware and comes with built-in support for out-of-the-box whitebox monitoring of Kubernetes. Therefore, Dynatrace supports full-stack monitoring for Kubernetes, i.e. monitoring from the application down to the infrastructure layer. However, if you don't have access to the infrastructure layer, Dynatrace provides also the option of application-only monitoring.
