AK

Hi Folks,

 

What is recommended, use a proxy for ActiveGate or open a firewall from ActiveGate to Dynatrace SaaS?

 

What is best practice that we usually follow.

There are no particular golden rules for this. We support multiple different connectivity schemes - see https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/shortlink/sgw-availability#proxy-and-load-balancer-configurat...

 

Using Dynatrace you are not required to install any additional LB/Proxy.

 

What path to go depends on specifically your environment. To select best option you need to evaluate :

- Costs - If you deploy on public or hybrid clouds, usually you pay for the outbound traffic. A private link, LB or a proxy might be a good choice to gather all traffic in a corresponding Dynatrace SaaS region. 

- Network simplification - If you have a complex environment spanning across multiple clouds, network zones and data centers - a proxy/LB might be a good choice to simply management of outgoing connections to Dynatrace SaaS.

- Security - if for a privacy reason you want to hide during the routing IPs of you monitored hosts by OneAgent.

- Auditing - in case you need to control and inspect how much traffic and what traffic is sent
