Log Analytics AIX

Frequent Guest


up to now log analytics is not available on AIX.

According to this blog post it´s planned for a future OneAgent release. Unforunately I couldn´t
find any current information on this topic.

Is there any news
when Log Analytics will be available on AIX?




We are working on this however with lower priority than other tasks. In the meantime (with S155) you will be able to forward logs from syslog sources that is OS-agnostic and will also support AIX platforms.


Any news about the ETA for AIX? (EAP maybe) Syslog is OK for host logs, but mostly useless for application logs or middleware unless the logging can be reconfigured to syslog.

There is new feature that allows you push logs to dynatrace over API, maybe this will be helpfull...

I know this feature, it is handy for some use cases. But for application servers such as WAS this not (directly without 3rd party tool) usable if you can't force them to do remote logging.

AIX support for Log Anaytics is on hold. You can configure syslog to stream data from any log file on the disk. See for example:



I am interested in getting logs from applications (WAS) on AIX platforms.

This post has been idle for a year now, is there any news about this topic ?

Is it still planned in the roadmap - and if so, when ?

Also, the API given as a hint might already work, but before I look for more info on it, the link to the article does not work (it links to the log feature homepage), so is it possible to update it please ?

Thanks in advance,


Have you tried contacting the Dynatrace One team using the built-in chat or via support ticket?

Yes I did, in the online chat they advised me to nudge this blog post !



Quick update after quite a long time. For now, we do not support AIX. And in the next 12 months, we also won't have it in plans.
