Can I limit quotas of host units by management zone?

Hi Everyone,


Can Dynatrace limit quotas of HUs by management zone? for all I know the Dynatrace can limit quotas by environment.

Quotas for HU are only possible per Environment not on a Management Zone level.

Hi @AskMe-Solutions team,


As @pahofmann mentioned you would not be able to set a quota limit for host units at the management level. If you would like to capture that information and as a workaround push an event to trigger a problem when such limits are reached per management zone, you can meet those requirements.


What I mean is to use the following API and filter per management zone:


Later calculate the sum of all the "consumedHostUnits" and with a simple condition function, trigger the following API to push the events to either all/selective main entities in the management zone to open a problem with some context like - 'Management Zone Host Unit Quota reached'


Like this, you can automate the requirement and let the script run on a regular interval to monitor the limit as per your need.


Kind regards,

Hi @AskMe-Solutions 


Not possible at this time.


You can visualize the consumption..., but no limitation possible.
