Minimum Number of ActiveGate


Hello Dynatrace team!

Currently I have a plan to deploy Dynatrace on 11 servers with total consumption 18 Host Units as attached below.



If I want to use ActiveGate, how to check minimum requirement for that ActiveGate? Is there any recommendation on how many active gate I should use?

Also if I have a plan to use Managed deployment method, should I enable Cluster Active Gate? And if yes, what is the requirement needed for it?


Thank you.

Hi @agylpradipta 

You can find a sizing information in the documnetation:

Hardware and system requirements for routing/monitoring ActiveGates on Linux | Dynatrace Docs

Based on your list only one Env AG would be enough. Depends on your organization requirements (eg. HA) maybe you should set up more than one. For this not so long list of hosts the HW requirements are very low.  

You can find additional infromation about ENV AG and Cluster AG also in the documnetation:

Dynatrace ActiveGate | Dynatrace Docs

Supported connectivity schemes for ActiveGates | Dynatrace Docs

I hope it helps.

If you don't need any extensions, synthetic monitoring or log ingestion via other methods than OneAgent, you will be fine even without Environment ActiveGate in Dynatrace Managed deployment.
