Dynatrace server perfomance with Mcafee on same host

Hello community members,

I was wondering, is anyone experiencing issues with Dynstrace server nodes when Mcafee is installed on same host vm?

Is there a guideline to have both on the same vm?

Are there bestpractices?


Is there a way to have a self monitoring environment of your cluster - other then the cmc?

Thank you in advance

Hi Yann!

It is a known issue that Mcafee running on the same host as a oneagent can cause cpu overhead on Windows Hosts.

If you're using McAfee, you may experience CPU overhead. To resolve this issue, set McAfee to Exploit Prevention Compatibility Mode.

To Answer your second question. Self Monitoring is included in our Dynatrace One Premium packages. Although there is a dashboarding options coming in upcoming releases.


Thank you Micheael B.!

mcafee did not play nicely with our environment either - we ended up stripping it off as it created reliability issues for the Dynatrace application.
