Overall Satisfaction with Datadog

We use Datadog to trace and monitor our whole infrastructure. The APM feature is a blessing. Also, the log stream is way better than the same features of similar products. We used it to gather and centralize data from AWS into an easy-to-understand dashboard. For example, we created dashboards with the data per environment about availability, error rates, error quotas & network traffic.

Pros

  • APM
  • Log streaming
  • Playbooks, which are a collection of "views" that you can aggregate into a single dashboard.

Cons

  • JSON parsing on logs
  • Documentation
  • Log aggregation
  • APM
  • Playbooks
  • Error quotas & SLA definition
  • The biggest ROI was in time. Before, we spent hours to get the reasons for an outage. With all Datadog tools' in place, we required minutes to understand what happened.
