Dynatrace OneAgent OverHead Official Documentation


Good Morning.

We have a customer who want official documentation about OneAgent overhead.
I was searching for information in the documentation and didn't find an exact documentation about this.

Can anyone help me with an exact link? Thanks very much.

I don't think there is or will be an official note on this topic.
Overhead is typically at about 1% of CPU. But it really depends on further configuration (request attributes, collecting of SQL query results, etc), so there will not be a general statement.
Agent also implements throttling - so for example in case of a high load on host, agent may throttle some functionality.
In general, the overhead is so low, that it is probably not measurable.

Thanks for the information


Hi @Danny G.

There is no "magic number" it all depends on how "busy" your host is. I think that James did a great job answering to similar question here:

Great, Thanks
