Monitoring by Datadog

We have thousands of containers running on hundreds of servers, so we need comprehensive monitoring system to monitor service and server metrics.

We investigated popular cloud monitoring platform: New Relic and Datadog, finally we decided to use datadog.

Dashboard: Datadog could  detect services and configure dashboards for you automatically.

Container & Process: You could check all your containers & process in all environments clearly.

Monitors: Datadog will create monitors according to service type automatically, if it doesn’t your requirement, you could create your own. It’s also convenient to send alert message through Slack, Email.

APM: Datadog provide various charts for API analysis, also there’s Service Map which you could check service dependencies.

Synthetics: New feature in Datadog which could test your API around the world to check availability and uptime.
