Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

Datadog is being used to pull variable information from an agent on each of our servers and sent to a centralized location so we have a one stop place to understand how well our servers and services are doing. It is being used by the operations team as well as developers. It addresses getting having to go many places to get the same information.
  • Centralized data.
  • Quick easy graphs.
  • Customization.
  • Many other products out there like it.
  • Not as dynamic as some other open source tools.
  • Pricey compared to open source tools.
  • Not [having] to manage your own infrastructure.
  • Costly.
  • One stop shop to your data.
  • Cacti, Grafana and Graphite
Datadog visually is up there with the rest of these products. For some projects I use datadog and others I use different open source tools. For our production environment we use datadog and with Puppet the installation on each of our servers makes it quick and easy to install. For non-production servers we use other tools.
Datadog can be used by any company that wants to get a deeper understanding of their systems and services. It's great for each project to determine what quantifiable data would lead to success. It would be less appropriate to use it for financial information as there are lots of better tools for that.
