In the Self Monitoring SP, I see different measures about visit counts. One of those is of interest to me, because a NewTest robot is taking a lot of visits from my license on a daily basis.
The Measure "UEM - Visits not considered for License (Synthetic Monitoring)" Indicates that synthetic robot calls are to be excluded from the license count.
How is it determined whether a client is a robot in this context?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It uses the user-agent header to determine whether it may be a bot or crawler. No need to worry about using visits with Dynatrace Synthetic tests as these will not consume visits from your license in any recent version if they have the gomez header.
For agents other than the Synthetic Gomez ones I am not 100% sure on this but I have seen in the Dynatrace forum that they use this database: https://udger.com/resources/ua-list/crawlers to determine which user-agents are bots or crawlers, which is updated monthly and given that AppMon UEM and Dynatrace RUM are based on the same technology I bet they use that as well but would need some confirmation on that.
