Dynatrace Services and Agents Restart Sequence

Hello All,

1. Dynatrace services are stopped purposely when application server restart is happening to test whether agent instrumentation is disabled.

But surprisingly all the agents got connected fine .

Can anyone explain how it is possible that agent start time 9.32 in agent overview is when dyntarace services are not running that time. Dynatrace services started by 9.44.

Dynatrace services stopped : 8.15 to 9.43

Agents restarted 9.32 and got connected to

Note : I wanted to recreate the scenario to confirm that, during the time of agents restart ,dynatrae services down means, agent instrumentation wont happen.

Is my assumption wrong.

Thanks & regards

Hello Karthikayini,

Agent instrumentation done on the collector level and then it looks for the license on the Dynatrace Server.

That's correct. And when it doesn't find the license (e.g. by not being able to connect to the server as in your case), there won't be any instrumentation. You can verify this in the agent logs.
