Does Decommissioning appmon infrastructure without uninstalling appmon agents cause impact to application?

We have a lot of customers/applications using appmon for monitoring and now we have started dynatrace managed adoption and migration. Will there be any impact/outage to applications if we decommission appmon supporting infra and leave the agents with out uninstalling them? At the scale that I'm working at, it is becoming difficult coordinating with thousands of app teams to uninstall agents from the app servers, recycling their servers etc. If we can decommission our infra without installing agents we can quickly lower costs incurred by appmon infra and then get the agents removed after that during server patching or application deployment changes etc.

Hello @Karthik L.

I would recommend you to never use both agents on the same host, as we had done this exercise, and gone through with a very tough time especially with RUM.

Removing AppMon infrastructure is a new idea, and If this is acceptable by the customer, then you can try.

Regards,

Babar
