We are using Dynatrace oneagent in Managed mode in our organisation. All the user actions conducted by a particular user is present under User Sessions. We would like to know for how many days is this data retained. We would like to have the data for audit purposes.

If the question is unclear please let me know

Hello Abhinav,

Below are 2 x documented examples:


  • To monitor 8k hosts with a peak load of 3k user actions per second, you need 3 extra large nodes with a combined storage of 4TB for direct storage and 30TB for long-term metrics.
  • To monitor 200 hosts with a peak load of 500 user actions per second, you need 1 medium node with storage of 1TB for transactions and 2.5TB for long-term metrics, or to have failover you can also use 3 small nodes.

Have a look on the below link for the 'Storage recommendation'.

Hi,

Thanks for the info. We keep receiving queries from audit
& vigilance departments for user actions in the past (some times
beyond three months). Is there any way to restore backup data and view
past (prior to three months) user actions in a seperate instance/setup
of dynatrace managed (on premise).. Pl help
