Hello @Arvind M.

I would recommend reading the following links for better insight.

  • Full-stack. Includes understanding and mapping all the relationships and interdependencies, top to bottom, from end-user experience all the way down to the infrastructure.

  • Dynatrace RUM gives you the power to know your customers by providing performance analysis in real-time. This includes all user actions are taken and how the various actions impact performance.

Thanks Babar.

What will be the difference from OneAgent installation point-of-view. If you install OneAgent on server/host operating system and choose for default full stack mode, Will it enable run time monitoring and full stack monitoring both? Or for runtime monitoring you need to do some extra installation steps?

Hello @Arvind M.

Yes. OneAgent is responsible for collecting all monitoring data within your monitored environment. A single OneAgent per host is required to collect all relevant monitoring data—even if your hosts are deployed within Docker containers, microservices architectures, or cloud-based infrastructure.

Please have a look at the below link for more insight.

Hi,

Real user monitoring is one of the attribute of monitoring that comes with OneAgent when installed with full stack monitoring mode. You don't need to do anything else to enable real user monitoring. For more detail you can read the document shared by Babar
