Stop/restart OneAgent on AIX

In case you don't want to use OneAgent inside a particular Java (or other) process, you can easily disable Dynatrace monitoring for individual hosts, process groups, or applications:

  1. Go to Settings > Monitoring overview.
  2. Click the Hosts, Process groups, or Applications tab to access the monitoring switches for individual entities.
  3. Slide the Monitoring switch to the Off position.
  4. Restart all processes for which monitoring has been disabled.

Stop OneAgent using the command line

If you use configuration management tools like Puppet or Ansible, you can alternatively stop the OneAgent service using the following command:

/etc/rc.d/oneagent stop invoked with root privileges, where /etc/rc.d/oneagent is where the OneAgent binary is located.

Note: If you stop OneAgent service, monitoring will be disabled until the service is restarted.

Start OneAgent using the command line

To start Dynatrace OneAgent again, use the following command:

/etc/rc.d/oneagent start invoked with root privileges, where /etc/rc.d/oneagent is where the OneAgent binary is located.
