How to get the latest Update?


Check out dynaTrace 4 Downloads to download the latest update!


  • Download and extract the zip container to your disc
  • Install dynaTrace-4.0.0.x.dtp as a plugin into your dynaTrace Server
  • Once the Plugin has been deployed, you will be asked to restart the currently connected dynaTrace Collectors and afterwards to restart the dynaTrace Server
  • Reconnect your dynaTrace Clients to the dynaTrace Server in order to get them updated
  • Finally we recommend to also install the latest version of the Agents using the agent installers in the agents directory of the update

Agent Installation on Windows


For existing installations on Windows you can just extract the file over your agents directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\dynaTrace\dynaTrace 4.0.0\agent). Be sure to shut down all instrumented application processes so that the files can be overwritten.

Note: In order for all fixes to have an effect, the instrumented applications need to be restarted

Optional Agent Development Kit (ADK) Installation

For customers who are using the ADK in order to instrument their native applications we recommend to get the ADK library for your platform out of
