Kubernetes (K8s) is a simple, flexible, and efficient solution for container orchestration that deploys, manages, scales, and automates applications.


Dynatrace OneAgent is container-aware and comes with built-in support for out-of-the-box monitoring of Kubernetes. Dynatrace supports full-stack monitoring for Kubernetes, from the application down to the infrastructure layer.

Starting with Dynatrace version 1.215, you can deploy full-stack OneAgents and containerized ActiveGates using Dynatrace Operator. Earlier Dynatrace versions can still be deployed with OneAgent Operator. Nevertheless, we recommend migrating to Dynatrace Operator.
For more information on all deployment options, see Kubernetes deployment overview.
