ActiveGate configuration files are located in the ActiveGate configuration directory.
Modify configuration properties
You can customize your ActiveGate configurations (for example, connectivity and proxy settings, ciphers, or memory dump settings) using the custom.properties file.
Choose ActiveGate modules
Enable multiple ActiveGate modules to run separate monitoring processes.
Configure communication settings
Specify communication settings—including connection timeout values—to ensure continuous connectivity.
Define communication settings for ActiveGate modules
Define communication settings specific for communicating with the Dynatrace Server, or specific to ActiveGate modules, such as Synthetic Monitoring, AWS/VMware/Azure, Cloud Foundry, or Kubernetes.
Specify communication ports
Specify custom communication ports and open these ports in a firewall, if a firewall is in use.
Set up proxy for specific ActiveGate modules
Set up a proxy for ActiveGate for communicating with the Dynatrace Server, or specific to ActiveGate modules, such as Synthetic Monitoring, AWS/VMware/Azure, Cloud Foundry, or Kubernetes.
Set up reverse proxy
Configure ActiveGate to ignore the Dynatrace Managed Cluster address and instead use the address of a reverse proxy.
Define trusted certificates
Specify trusted certificates in a trusted key store, to be used by ActiveGate for connections where ActiveGate is the client—for example, for monitoring specific technologies (using specific ActiveGate modules) or for communicating with Dynatrace Managed server. These certificates are in addition to Java defaults.
To configure ActiveGate to use a custom certificate or create a self-signed
PKCS#12 certificate file for testing, see Configure custom SSL certificate on ActiveGate. To configure a Java or custom trusted store, see Configure trusted root certificates on ActiveGate
Configure ciphers for SSL communication.
Configure multi-environment support
Set Java process parameters
Customize the Java process parameters for launching the ActiveGate service, including setting memory limits, JVM settings, or port ranges.
Configuration of ActiveGate launcher is stored in the
launcheruserconfig.conf configuration files. You can customize these settings by modifying
