Collector Equation - How do you anticipate the capacity of new agents?

Hey,

Myself and @Jeff Rowell are trying to figure out an approach for capacity planning in regards to adding agents to a collector. We wanted to throw this notion out to the community, and see how other Dynatrace Wizards go about managing their capacity on their collectors and anticipating new agent onto existing collectors.

From our understanding right now, it is desirable to look at:

  • How much traffic goes through that agent (How many MPS/Purepaths etc.)
  • Current activity of similar agents (Technology, Application Stack, etc.)
  • Current capacity of Collector (Based on Technology)

I also do understand the notion of smart caching with 6.2 but unfortunately we are still at 6.1.

Any Input is greatly Appreciated. 🙂

Cheers,

Sanj

You may also check Bytes sent by agents, Some agents might create more bytes than others.
