we are trying to monitor python apps via DYnatrace and we found two methods :
1- One AGent SDK
2- Using opentelemetery
Which one is better and what are the differences between the two solutions ?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I was about to recommend the OneAgent SDK, because of the auto instrumentation option, but saw that they actually recommend taking a look at opentelemetry-python which also offers auto instrumentation now link to dynatrace documentation.
OpenTelemetry has wider community adoption, the SDK can add a few more (dynatrace specific) features like request attributes.
Thank you for your answer.
When verifying the documentation about Opentelemetery i saw that the endpoint is the Dynatrace URL and env ID
Shouldn't it be the ActiveGate instead ?
if not, then the flow must be open to Dynatrace URL on 443, do you confirm ?
You can send it directly to the cluster or an Environment Active Gate if it has the Rest API module enabled.
So it would be and URL like this i imagine ?
Yes that should be it.
