Is Multiple SDM agents in one Host supported?

Hi Experts

I know about the rule of one SDM agent per host.  Is it possible to install 2 different SDM agents in one host...
Does SAP supports this?  Is there any documentation supporting this.

For Example...

I want my Development systems connected to my both Solution Managers ( Production and Development ).  I want to have the possibility to start  monitoring from either one of them.

Or, I want an SDM agent pointing to an external service provider to monitor my landscape throught their SolMan,   And I want to keep one SDM agent configured to my own Solman Server.


Should/Can I install an additional SDM agent in every system?

Do you have a particular documentation that support this scenario?

Regards and thanks

Hi Henry ,

I think you mean a SMD agent and not SDM agent.SAP recommends to use only one Diagnostics Agent per Managed host.( Physical or virtual host)

But the documentation also says that "Only one Diagnostics Agent for each Solution Manager must exist per physical, virtual or logical host running a managed component"

It  would be possible do it. Install two SMD agents and configure it in such a way that they send monitoring data to two different SOLMAN system .

It would give you a warning that diagnostics agent is already installed.But you can install with a different instance number and same sid.
