I have a basic question - We are planning to use Dynatrace monitor several Java applications that are deployed on an application server deployed on virtual machines. The virtual machines themselves are installed on windows ESX hosts.
My understanding is that OneAgent gets deployed on the ESXHost. Do we also need to install OneAgent on the virtual machine separately?
Solved! Go to Solution.
To monitor java apps - you need to install OneAgent at each VM.
To monitor ESX hosts - you need to set up VMWare monitoring.
Thanks for the quick response.
I had a quick followup question to understand your answer fully -
1. If we have 2 or more virtual machines on a single physical host, then do we still need a separate OneAgent for each virtual machine?
2. For the physical host, we only need to monitor the basic metrics such as CPU, Memory and Network usage. Do we still need to setup VMware monitoring for these basic requirements? Can we get these basic host metrics without configuring VMware monitoring?
2. Yes. Otherwise you can monitor them by other means - eg through plugin.
