License exhausted, Too many 'Host Monitoring' agents connected



we receive an email of the dynaTrace server:

License exhausted, Too many 'Host Monitoring' agents connected

How can we get rid of this? Thanks in advance.

Not quite sure what you're looking for but as I see it your options are:

1. Get more host monitoring agent licenses

2. Disconnect some of the host monitoring agents you currently have connected

3. Set to inactive the "License" incident under the dynaTrace Self-Monitoring system profile (this will prevent any incidents related to licenses being opened though)


Hi James

I have a similar issue when looking at agent overview dash it shows "License exhausted; Too many 'Host Monitoring' agents connected"

I only have one connected that i can see and i have one license?

i have tried restarting the service

"service dynaTraceHostagent stop" and the error went away for about 5 min but came back? any way to see who is consuming this license?


Any that are connected will show up in the agents overview - if they're connected they will be there (sort the Technology tab for SysMonitoring if you're on 7 - it may have been different like Native in other versions).

If you really only see one check your license reservations to make sure your one license is not reserved for a specific system profile or agent group.


Hi James,

Thanks for the info, apparently we do not have a host agent license?

Not sure why the host agent was installed in the first place if we had no license?

I thought we did but regardless I'm going to remove the host agent and go from there

Thanks again!
