Troubleshooting the Dynatrace Full-Stack Add-on for PCF

This topic provides instructions to verify that Dynatrace OneAgent works with your Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) deployment.

Verify Your Dynatrace Add-on for PCF Installation

  1. Check your Dynatrace environment for new monitored hosts.

  2. BOSH ssh into one of the VMs in your deployment.

  3. Run sudo su - to enter the root environment with root privileges.

  4. Run monit summary. Look for the following processes in the output:

    The Monit daemon 5.2.5 uptime: 8d 11h 33m
    Process 'dynatrace-oneagent'        running
  5. If monit summary does not list dynatrace-oneagent, check /var/vcap/sys/log/dynatrace-oneagent/ logs for errors.

Known Limitations

p-invitations App Does Not Start

Symptom

Running the errands for installing AppsManager fails.

Explanation: Memory limit is too restrictive.

As part of deploying AppsManager, a number of apps are deployed to the Elastic Runtime. Starting p-invitations app might fail due to restrictive memory limits (128M).

Solution

In the Dynatrace UI, go to Settings > Monitoring overview and select the Process groups tab. Search for the p-invitations process group and disable monitoring for these groups.

Re-run the deployment. Going forward, p-invitations will be disabled from monitoring.
