Dynatrace ActiveGate AutoUpdater timeout (Synthetic-enabled ActiveGate)

Hi guys! Please give me advice on what happens to my ActiveGate private synthetic installation? Looks like AutoUpdater can not install something, but why?

See logs:

@Sergii I am facing a similar issue while installing environment activegate. have you found any solution to your problem?

Hi @ankurs , I did not managed to find a solution. But I guess this issue is related to some kind of "not enough resources" stuff. The point why I think so is that I tried to install Synthetic-enabled ActiveGate in minikube on ubuntu container. Probably minikube does not provide enough memory or CPU. Later I installed the same type of ActiveGate to my host windows mashine and it was ok, so maybe it will help you.

Synthetic AGs are not currently supported for installation in containers, so possibly that is causing this behaviour. If you just install it on Ubuntu, do you see the same issue?

@HannahM  I am facing this issue while installing environment AG on a Linux machine. any idea about that behavior? 

HannahM

So you see the same 

WARNING: Timeout while downloading capabilities.

message in the gateway installation log?
Can you confirm that the AG can successfully connect to the cluster? This is where it will download the Synthetic Module from
Can you also check the 

/var/lib/dynatrace/packages

 folder. Are there any .sh files in there? Specifically 

Dynatrace-Synthetic-Linux-x86-*

files. If so, what size are they? 0kb? If so, usually this occurs when a virus scanner removes it. 

Yes, I see the same message

 

WARNING: Timeout while downloading capabilities.

 

AG can successfully connect to the cluster as I can see below log

 

2023-01-30 14:32:12 UTC Starting Dynatrace Gateway...
2023-01-30 14:32:27 UTC Successfully connected to server

 

And failing after the timeout error mentioned in the description. For me below directory is empty 

/var/lib/dynatrace/packages

and there is no .sh file. Are you talking about the file something similar to 

Dynatrace-ActiveGate-Linux-x86-1.257.216.sh

For me, this file is present in the root folder.

HannahM

Thanks for checking. The Dynatrace-ActiveGate-Linux-x86-1.257.216.sh is the ActiveGate installer. This then downloads the relevant modules - Synthetic, remote etc to the packages folder. It seems it's the Synthetic module that is not able to download. It would be easiest to investigate this by checking the logs for the Activegate. Can you start a chat or create a ticket? Then we can check exactly what is happening on this machine. Thanks

Sure @HannahM . Let me do the needful. Thanks for your help.

Please, can you check if you have connection to https://synthetic-packages.s3.amazonaws.com

?

If you do not have connectivity, it is very likely that the update will fail.

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

@DanielS I did curl on the above URL and below was the result

# curl https://synthetic-packages.s3.amazonaws.com
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Error><Code>AccessDenied</Code><Message>Access Denied</Message><RequestId>CXYKZYQ11K8SAR9X</RequestId><HostId>B2AkY/OFkqXXLgDLLjQvrC5qj0RZEqbi+/p7C0HuKiy4jLeJlXpLZtCM5irdfl+yH86tKe9ti/U=</HostId></Error>[root@alldstestdt2-1 ~]# 

 is it an unexpected output?

DanielS

Yes, an Access Denied here implies connectivity, because to get the Denied you first need to reach the resource.

To test try with this. curl --output chromium.tgz https://synthetic-packages.s3.amazonaws.com/Chromium/rpm/chromium-103.0.5060.114-1.el7.tgz

The true delight is in the finding out rather than in the knowing.

No connectivity issue.

Ok, you can discard that, let's wait to see with support what else could be happening. Please let us know.
