  • Thanks to the tool's versatility and a huge ecosystem around it, you can use it to track virtually anything.
  • Powerful alert and warning configuration let you drastically reduce false positives.
  • Runbooks give your team members guidance on how to act on alerts.
  • Powerful data analysis features: you can slice and dice your data, almost the same way you can do it in a behavioral analytics tool. This means you can efficiently refine your metrics as your business grows.
  • Overwhelming to use for newcomers.
  • Even when you're familiar with the tool, finding the right metric or dashboard can be challenging unless you know exactly what you're looking for.

  • Server resource usage
  • Multi-stage alerts based on configurable thresholds
  • Custom Dashboards of all accumulated data
  • We had a couple "integrations" that had some issues during setup, but Support addressed them very quickly
  • Unnecessary alerts about DataDog components...by the time I see them, they're almost always also fixed
  • I wish there was a DataDog mobile app that would have dedicated alerts (configurable per alert to override Do Not Disturb setting) instead of relying on emails notifications that could be overlooked in the midst of many incoming emails around the same time.

  • Does a good job at log management with full search, live-access, and automatic archiving to S3 is also simple.
  • APM is fantastic and gives great insights into production machines, but is not cheap.
  • Because APM is billed by instance, it can be very expensive -- perhaps even more than the cost of the underlying instances depending on the kinds of systems you are running.
  • While it's not difficult to deploy, it certainly has quirks owing to the limits of cloud platforms -- we wish it was easier to set up for some services.

  • Great UX. Good looking dashboards and advanced graphs.
  • Simple Rest API allowing integration with basically any service/application. Allows for the creation of a centralized source of data.
  • Good API documentation and very responsive customer service.
  • Good pricing model for micro-services. Can handle getting data from many sources without having to pay as much as alternatives.
  • Limitation on what you can do with reporting and analytics. If you need to do very advanced mathematical/graphing operations, might need to use data in another BI Tool to accomplish.
  • Good amount of upfront work to install and configure across your entire application/software stack. Heavy learning curve.
  • Logging capabilities not as robust as alternatives like Splunk.

  • APIs, the ability to interact with the data we pull into data dog is key. We port the information over to Servicenow, so the ability to pull everything into DataDog, then Servicenow, is a key component of our success here at Wayfair.
  • Simple Interface - clean, useful, effective. Allows users to use DataDog for one reason, get work done.
  • Lightweight agent on hosts
  • Reducing the delays in monitoring agent response time
  • Configuration of aggregate metrics, allow us to compile / aggregate data faster and with more ease
  • Improvements in Security policies

  • Monitoring unhealthy box instances
  • Watch CPU usage
  • Watch Memory Usage
  • Monitoring logging issue. To do that, we need other kinds of tool, such as Splunk.
  • It takes a time to create a dashboard from scratch. It's easy to set up by a senior user, but it is not for beginners.

  • Dashboards are so great.
  • Rest API functionality makes this one of the best monitoring tools on the market.
  • With the integration it provides with cloud watch, there is an option to monitor even without the agent installation.
  • We need to automate the agent installation, otherwise, it's a tedious job to do manually.
  • The integration with AWS had some issues in the past, but that seems better now.
  • This product has a steep learning curve at the beginning.

  • The dashboard is easy to customize and understand for our organization to consume various site metrics.
  • The integration support is very strong, pretty much any service you can think of is supported. Also can create custom metrics.
  • Datadog customer support is helpful and responsive. Can generally help with workarounds to any issues.
  • User interface could be improved in some areas, looking for host information and the agent install link takes a bit of time.
  • Configuration of the agent is generally done via a config file which is a pro and a con. It would be nice to have some UI to configure various agent options.
  • Billing isn't entirely straightforward, they could use more reports to figure out the source of your monthly costs.
