You are almost there.  The last thing that needs to be accomplished is to install the agents on the monitored hosts and configure dynaTrace to receive data from those hosts.  In the first section select the platform OS and follow the install instructions.  Next follow the videos on a walk through of configuring a java based application or a .NET based application.

Installing the Agent on a Linux host

To install the dynaTrace Java agent on Linux you will need a Java runtime available to execute the installer. Copy the agent file to the monitored host and run the installer within the destination directory (e.g. /opt) with the following command:


# java -jar dynatrace-agent- 
Running installer /opt/dynatrace-agent-
dynaTrace 5.6.0 Installer
platform: Linux, amd64
Installer is running with JVM version 1.6.0_24
Detected OS/Arch: linux
The product will be installed to /opt/dynatrace-5.6.0. Do you want to install to this directory? (Y/N)

Also make sure that the user your application server will run with has read/write permission for this directory structure.

Install the Agent on a Windows Host


To install the Java or .NET agent on Windows platforms execute the agent installation MSI file and optionally specify the install location.
