The basic Dynatrace Managed components are illustrated in the image below.
Dynatrace Managed cluster
Your Dynatrace Managed cluster is responsible for monitoring one or more environments. It includes at least one node with Dynatrace Server installed (typically you create more than one node in a cluster). Each Dynatrace Managed cluster is associated with one Cluster Management Console. Thus, each Dynatrace Managed cluster is associated with:
- One or more nodes (and therefore one or more Dynatrace Server instances)
- One or more monitored environments (and therefore one or more instances of Dynatrace OneAgent)
- One Cluster Management Console
Each time you want to set up a new cluster, you need to obtain a license. All your Dynatrace Managed clusters communicate with Mission Control for maintenance and licensing issues.
Dynatrace Managed installer
The Dynatrace Managed installer provides all the conveniences offered by the Dynatrace cloud on your own infrastructure and enables the monitoring of application services, processes, and on-premises infrastructure. The Dynatrace Managed installer is comprised of the following components:
- Dynatrace Server
- An embedded ActiveGate
All of the components listed are deployed on the first node that you create when setting up your cluster, as well as on any additional node.
Cluster Management Console
For each Dynatrace Managed cluster you set up, there is a dedicated Cluster Management Console. Cluster Management Console is a web-based user interface for efficiently managing your Dynatrace Managed infrastructure. From here you can view the deployment status of your Dynatrace Managed cluster setup at any time.
With the Cluster Management Console, you can:
Dynatrace Mission Control provides pro-active support for maintenance and licensing issues. With automated support from our Dynatrace ONE team, your Dynatrace Managed installation is updated automatically. You can reach out to our Dynatrace ONE team through real-time, in-product assistance if you need help or encounter any issues.
Dynatrace OneAgent is installed on each monitored environment. Dynatrace OneAgent is responsible for collecting all performance data within your monitored environment and sending the data to Dynatrace Server.
