Normally you benefit from real user monitoring only after you’ve installed Dynatrace OneAgent. The manual approach to setup described here—otherwise known as agentless real user monitoring—should only be used for installations where you aren’t able to start deep monitoring, for example because you have no Dynatrace OneAgent installed on your web server machine.
Before you begin:
What you’ll need:
Enable real user monitoring without installing Dynatrace OneAgent
Note: Agentless monitoring is appropriate for environments where you can’t install an agent on your web server. If you do have web server access, it’s recommended that you use the standard monitoring setup instead.
Add an application to your Dynatrace environment by selecting Set up agentless monitoring from the menu.
Type in your application’s domain name.
Click Add web application
- The script tag is updated each time you make a change to your application’s settings, so be sure that you insert the current version of the tag.
Dynatrace waits for you to modify your pages’ code and then to see traffic on the website. You can finish here or wait to see if everything’s fine.
Once page code changes have been deployed, you should begin to see monitoring data within a few minutes.
