How do I get started with infrastructure monitoring?

Basic infrastructure monitoring begins automatically as soon as Dynatrace OneAgent starts operation and begins capturing performance and event-related information on your hosts. All monitored details are displayed for you on your home dashboard. Dynatrace updates your homepage continuously with the current status of all hosts in your environment.

Your infrastructure is monitored automatically following initial setup.

What's included in infrastructure monitoring?

Dynatrace evaluates the following components in the monitoring of your application infrastructure:

  • Your hosts (CPU, memory, NIC and storage)
  • Host processes
  • Network health
  • Your virtual management platform (VMware vCenter or standalone ESXi hosts)
