Route z/OS traffic to Dynatrace
The zRemote module aggregates binary data from the OneAgent code modules on z/OS and relays that data to a Dynatrace ActiveGate. The zRemote module can run in a Windows or Linux environment and thereby offloads much of the OneAgent processing on z/OS incurred in instrumenting applications.
zRemote functionality and module
If the zRemote module is enabled on an ActiveGate, no other functional module can be enabled. Note that the zRemote module is more demanding in terms of system and hardware requirements. See Sizing guidelines of the zRemote module.
See Configuration properties and parameters of ActiveGate to learn how to enable zRemote module.
To monitor a z/OS LPAR, including technologies such as CICS, IMS, and Java, you need both
- an Environment ActiveGate with enabled zRemote module. This Environment ActiveGate is responsible for installing the zRemote module, updating the zRemote module, and providing the network interface. You can install the zRemote module as part of the Environment ActiveGate on a Linux or Windows operating system that is supported by ActiveGate. Only a few additional limitations must be considered.
- any ActiveGate with enabled OneAgent routing module. It is responsible for routing the aggregated binary data from the zRemote module encrypted and compressed to Dynatrace.
See Install the zRemote module for more details and configuration options.
