I'm using Dynatrace APM and looking forward to monitor the load balancer (Stingray Traffic Manager) in my environment. How can Dynatrace agents be installed on the STM load balancers? Given that they don't run on Java or.Net process

Hi Mohit,

Adding to James' answer, you can also achieve some level of monitoring without any agent installed. This is done by configuring "observed tiers". Observed tiers are components like load balancers, or datapower devices, etc. which don't have a specialised agent for their tech but still require monitoring.

You can define them from System Profile -> Observed Tiers, using a combination of hostname/IP, host:port mapping, or destination (if a messaging component).

You can read more about this here: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/doc/appmon/appli...

Best regards,

Radu

For AppMon if it is not a supported technology like Java, .NET, etc... you can still just deploy a host monitoring agent to get basic OS level metrics. They also support entering process patterns which can be checked for and alerted upon if they are missing.
