What's the difference between a FastPack and a Plugin?

FastPacks are downloadable packages that can contain resources such as preconfigured Plugins, Sensor Packs, Dashboards, and System Profiles. A FastPack bundles these different resources into one installation file that can be imported and installed into Dynatrace AppMon to reduce the number of configuration steps.

Plugins are supplemental product libraries that extend Dynatrace AppMon with features and functions beyond the functionality in the installed product. Plugins are imported into the product from the Dynatrace Server Settings dialog box, which is accessible from the Client.
