Installation directories

Configuration

  • Linux configuration
    You can customize ActiveGate directories, during ActiveGate installation, by specifying the following installation parameters:
    INSTALL - executable files, libraries and related files; default /opt/dynatrace
    CONFIG - configuration file; default /var/lib/dynatrace
    LOG - log file; default /var/log/dynatrace
    TEMP - temporary file; default /var/tmp/dynatrace
    PACKAGES_DIR - installation packages for ActiveGate upgrades or for additional capabilities; default /var/lib/dynatrace/packages

    Directory location constraints

    <customizable directory>/gateway—that is, INSTALL/gateway, CONFIG/gateway, LOG/gateway, TEMP/gateway, PACKAGES_DIR/gateway—cannot be a parent of another customizable directory, that is of INSTALL, CONFIG, TEMP, LOG or PACKAGED_DIR.

    For example, do not specify:

    INSTALL=/dynatrace
    LOG=/dynatrace/gateway/logs
    CONFIG=/dynatrace/gateway/config
    TEMP=/dynatrace/gateway/tmp
    

    Similarly, do not specify:

    CONFIG=/var/lib/dynatrace
    PACKAGES_DIR=/var/lib/dynatrace/gateway/packages
    

    However, a common parent is allowed, for example:

    INSTALL=/example/apps
    CONFIG=/example/configs
    LOG=/example/logs
    TEMP=/example/tmp
    
  • Windows configuration
    You can specify ActiveGate installation directory (INSTALL) in the installer UI; default %ProgramFiles%\dynatrace.

For more information on directory configuration, see Customize ActiveGate installation.

Directory locations

Note: On Windows, the %PROGRAMDATA% directory is usually hidden for non-privileged users. Therefore you cannot select it by browsing through folders. Instead, to access the folder, paste the folder path directly into a Windows Explorer address box.
