Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

Datadog helps us monitor our applications and ensure uptime. It is widely adopted by the entire engineering organization. When it comes to gathering performance metrics and tuning of our software applications, Datadog is just what we need. It ensures our infrastructure is highly available with fast and reliable services to our customers.
  • Metric and time series data collection
  • Integrations with other tools like PagerDuty, Slack and AWS
  • Creation of monitors to trigger alarms and notify teams
  • Easier way to create new dashboards and a way to implement them as code
  • Datadog needs to be woven into application's code which creates dependencies
  • Make the datadog agent more robust and reliable
  • Helps prevent losses by monitoring real time traffic on our live services.
  • Helps keep our infrastructure running with a high uptime
  • Helps employees balance their work-life by integration with alerting tools like PagerDuty
Datadog empowers us to create dashboards and visualize the state of our infrastructure in real time. It gives us control over what we want to view and how. The graphs provide deep insight into trends and anamoly detectives. These features are lacking in some of the other monitoring solutions out there.
Datadog fits your use case perfectly if you're writing, testing and running applications generating huge amounts of data and want a way to view this information graphically. Datadog has valuable features like sharable dashboards, Slack integration, CloudWatch integration and alerting.
It might be less appropriate for monitoring system and process level metrics. It can certainly do those but there are other tools out there like Zabbix, Nagios and Icinga.
