I previously asked a question where I totally mixed up logs with Dynatrace data. So I would like to be clear this time.
1.What are the different types of data in Dynatrace if there is any ?
2. What is the different between those stored data ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
You basically have 2 main data storage tools installed: ElasticSearch and Cassandra
Elasticsearch is more for the internal DT data and all UEM (transactions, etc) are stored in Cassandra.
The maximum size of the Cassandra storage is set by either 'Transaction storage' max limit or by retention period set in the relevant xxx-level retention boxes. (which ever threshold is reached first, will determine you actual size)
Very compressed answer, but hope it helps 😉
It helped me a lot, the only think that is still confusing is the fact that you mention Cassandra and Elasticsearch, however I don't think we have these db and log mangement tool in my company. Just for information, we are using the Dynatrace managed version. So if I understand, thoses features ( Cassandra and Elasticsearch ) are embedded in the managed version ?
Yes. Each Dynatrace Managed node has 1 node of Cassandra and 1 node of Elasticsearch.
Cassandra storage - contains mostly timeseries metric data and configuration
Elasticsearch storage - contains user sessions, events, problems and few others.
