How to enable only infrastructure monitoring and disable Application /any other monitoring


for some of our systems, we want to se only Infrastructure level monitoring. But I cannot seem find a place where I could do this easily. What is the process to get it done?

At the moment we have dynatrace SAAS agent is running in all of our servers.

You can disable service and application level anomaly detection within global settings 'Anomaly detection'.

This probably would disable for ALL . but we wanted only for some agents. @Wolfgang B.


You can do this while installing the agent. Need to pass the parameter INFRA_ONLY=1 in shell script
e.g. /bin/sh INFRA_ONLY=1

Okay , can we do the same thing after agent is installed? maybe changing agent configuration from somewhere? @Suresh K.

I've seen such option in the config file /var/lib/dynatrace/oneagent/agent/config/infraonly.conf . But I don't know if changing this property has any effect or if it's supported.

@Julius L.

This file is autogenerated and manual changes are not supported. The supported way is to reinstall the agent with INFRA_ONLY command line parameter set to the desired value.

Since agent version 129 the monitoring mode may be switched between "Full-stack" and "Cloud-infrastructure" from host settings screen on the WebUI.
Please note however that this feature has to first be enabled for your tenant.
The old way of changing the monitoring mode by reinstalling the agent with INFRA_ONLY parameter is still supported.

Hi @Tomasz G.

I assume that the feature has to be enabled for the "infrastructure only" checkbox to appear in the installer, right?

Yes, that is correct.


is it available also for Dynatrace Managed by default or it must be enabled on MC?



In Managed, that should be available once you set non-zero Infrastructure-only limit for your environment.

Hi @Tomasz_Gajger  is there any API available for the same to enable or disable Full Stack monitoring mode.
