Dynatrace OneAgent is supported on Linux, Windows, and AIX.
A complete list of OS versions is available on our help page: https://help.dynatrace.com/get-started/reference/w...
For ESXi, simply install OneAgent. That's the only thing required to install.
I also recommend you setup optional ESXi metric capturing from your ESXi instance under the VMWare tab in the left menu.
Thanks for the response Ari.
Double confirmed that I am installing OneAgent as root. You can also see in the screenshot I am logged in as root. So not installing as a root is not the issue. Any other guesses friends?
ESXi host monitoring is achieved through integration with vCenter server rather than OneAgent installation. Here are some details on Dynatrace integration with VMware:
And instructions how to configure it (section: "Connect to your VMware platform"):
Thanks for the response Karolina.
In an other experiment I installed the OneAgent on vCenter and able to see the ESX hosts but the information is very limited. I am trying to get to the processes/services level details about the ESX hosts by installing the OneAgent on it. Shouldn't I be able to install the OneAgent on ESX 6.5 host? I know it can be tricky since ESX host is running a VMware ESXi software which is different than a simple linux kernal. So any other suggestions?
