Disable Monitoring

What does exactly do the "Disable Monitoring" feature :

- at the host level ?

- at the process level ?

Here it is written we have to restart the process ( but do we have to reboot the host if we disable monitoring at that level ?

Disabling at the host level will stop all monitoring - at a process level just code level insights for that process. In general if enabling monitoring required a restart of the process, so will disabling.

Hosts do not have to be rebooted for install so you can also remove the agents w/o reboot.

Fixed the doc link 😉

An extra remark: when disabling monitoring it took 3 hours before the 'used licenses quota' got changed. But we did not have to reboot or restart processes.

We were resetting our trial license (#100) to our eternal license (#50), so we needed to be sure we were effectively using less than 50 licenses. The license change was done without problems.

Good call out. I too have seen that delay in the adjustments to license readings. I wish it was a bit faster.

I do think the toggles could be titled better. If you are brand new to Dynatrace, it can be confusing to see "Disable Monitoring". I would prefer to see "Disable RUM", etc.
