Can I disable monitoring?

You can easily disable Dynatrace monitoring for individual hosts, process groups, or applications:

  1. Go to Settings > Monitoring overview.
  2. Click the Hosts, Process groups, or Applications tab to access the monitoring switches for individual entities.
  3. Slide the switch to the Off position.
  4. Restart all processes for which monitoring has been disabled.


Don’t attempt to manually stop Dynatrace OneAgent service to disable it. Doing so will result in an incomplete installation. To remove Dynatrace components completely, you must uninstall Dynatrace OneAgent and uninstall Security Gateway.
