Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

Datadog is implemented as APM of choice for our organization at the platform level. Any team across the company opting to use the platform gets Datadog to gain insights into the platform with metrics like ELB, container & network stats, memory usage etc. This integration comes out of the box for the clients which they can use for monitoring their services
  • Easy to setup and use
  • offers wide variety of integrations with third-party services and systems
  • Cheaper than competitors
  • No custom query language which can be handy
  • Initial setup and configuration can be painful at the start
  • Additional reporting capabilities missing
  • It helps in maintaining our service SLA
  • Has been easy on wallet to the company
It has been easier to work with Datadog for all our business needs and get things on their roadmap if we found it lacking. Currently we use a mix of various tools as they were existing prior to Datadog came. We are evaluating new offering like Datadog's latest log management to see if they meet our expectations.
Its definitely growing & maturing at a rapid pace to make it more useful.
We are using Datadog to send Hystrix metrics of various service there and had setup various monitors and alerts which alerts on any underlying issue ahead of time before a major failure. Also created a dashboard quite similar to Hystrix Dashboard with ability to look back in time. It has worked well for us.
