Pro-active support

Report usage and billing information

Each Dynatrace Managed cluster reports license-relevant consumption data such as number of host units, synthetic monitors, and user sessions for each environment.

Report information about monitored technologies and feature usage

Dynatrace proactively sends alerts for incompatibilities or technology-specific risks related to your environment. Dynatrace can report information about installed OneAgent versions, process technologies, hosts, ActiveGates, and other related entities and configurations. The retrieved information may be used for support and to improve Dynatrace offerings. Dynatrace may use this data (if aggregated and it can't be used to identify end users) for industry analyses, benchmarking, and analytics.
