The support team usually gets it right. We did have a rather complicate issue setting up monitoring on a domain controller. However, they are usually responsive and helpful over chat. The downside would be I don’t think they have any phone support. If that is important to you this might not be a good fit.

We were struggling for a while with monitoring, and honestly were not impressed with anything we tried. Our platform was complex, a mix of embedded devices, different mobile OSs and cloud providers. After several months of try and fail, we found Data Dog and immediately got positive results, with minimal effort. Use cases kept evolving and got even better over time.
