This page gives an overview and guided path to different deployment options depending on the desired observability value. By default, all deployment options are based on Dynatrace Operator.
Observability options for Kubernetes
Full Kubernetes observability
Get immediate insights into your Kubernetes health and out-of-the-box distributed tracing and analytics for your workloads
- recommended Deploy Dynatrace Operator in classic full stack mode
Limitations: There’s a startup dependency between the container in which OneAgent is deployed and application containers to be instrumented (for example, containers that have deep process monitoring enabled). The OneAgent container must be started and the oneagenthelper process must be running before the application container is launched so that the application can be properly instrumented.
- Deploy Dynatrace Operator in cloud native full stack mode
Please note: The recommended deployment option for full Kubernetes Observability will be switched from classic full stack to cloud native full stack within one of the next Dynatrace Operator releases.
