Is it possible to, either during install or with command line options or otherwise to install OneAgent in infrastructure mode, meaning it should be similar to the older HostAgent installation?
Also including Log file monitoring should be included.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's possible to parameterize the installer. Take a look at the sample command that installs the agent in Infrastructure only mode and enables an access to the application's log files:
/bin/sh Dynatrace-OneAgent-Linux-1.116.136.sh APP_LOG_CONTENT_ACCESS=1 INFRA_ONLY=1
You will need to use the Windows installer for Group policy deployments. It comes with an msi file and a bat file with an example command line. In the bat file is where you specify INFRA_ONLY=1. See link for more details on this. Also be aware that you can alternatively enable/disable Infrastructure mode in the WebUI as well.
Adding to @Ugochukwu N.'s answer, the same can be done when installing on Windows in interactive mode. Please bear in mind that Cloud infrastructure mode must first be enabled for your tenant via license settings, otherwise the checkbox will not appear. Furthermore, without this license setting being enabled the Cloud infrastructure mode will not work for your hosts.
You don't have deep monitoring with Infrastructure mode, but plugins, OS and process level metrics are working.
Thus typically fits perfectly database servers. For service bus - depends on the service bus technology. If it's supported by Dynatrace, then a full stack deployment is recommended.
Raul, you can find everything on installing AIX agent here:
We want to monitor an Oracle Database server in infrastructure only mode located on a AIX OS, since is not necessary to install a full-stack agent because the OS host a Database.
How can I achieve this?
