Following installation of OneAgent on all hosts in your application environment, Dynatrace provides continuously updated metrics related to the performance of your monitored hosts. All host-related metrics are displayed on your home dashboard.
Dynatrace evaluates the following components in the monitoring of your physical and/or cloud-based application infrastructure:
- Your hosts (CPU, memory, NIC, and storage)
- Host processes
- Network health
- Your virtual infrastructure platform (VMware vCenter or standalone ESXi hosts)
Note: Full-stack monitoring includes all features included in cloud-infrastructure monitoring mode (see details below).
Cloud infrastructure monitoring
With cloud infrastructure monitoring mode, you only pay for and receive cloud-infrastructure health data, with no application performance or user experience data. While cloud infrastructure monitoring mode is satisfactory for some organizations, it's recommended that you use a full-stack monitoring license to gain complete application performance monitoring, code-level visibility, deep process monitoring, and cloud infrastructure monitoring (including PaaS platforms).
Cloud infrastructure monitoring mode licenses
You need to purchase a limited license to use cloud infrastructure monitoring mode. For details, see cloud infrastructure monitoring.
To enable cloud infrastructure monitoring mode during OneAgent installation, use the
INFRA_ONLY=1 parameter. For more information, see the OneAgant installation help specific to your environment.
To enable cloud infrastructure monitoring mode after OneAgent has been installed, go to a Host page, click Edit and select Monitoring mode. Set the Full-stack monitoring enabled to the off position. Note that you can see this page only if you purchased a license to use cloud infrastructure monitoring mode.
