Can dynatrace collector server setup on virtual machine?

ymaaa
Organizer

We are using dynatrace 6.5. Following the sizing guide, our server should be in Large scale. My question is whether we can setup our external collector server(with multiple instances) on a virtual machine?

Thanks

Hello YC,

Yes you can. Just do the sizing carefully especially the resources required.

The short answer is that it can indeed be done. The longer answer is that it will require the same dedicated resources as a physical machine. These collectors also need to be very close latency wise to the applications that they are receiving data from as they will not function correctly in a high latency environment. This means they are usually deployed in the same physical location of the apps.
