Container Monitoring | Datadog

Real-time container monitoring

Monitor ephemeral container environments as they change and scale

As modern orchestrated environments become larger and more complex, it can be a challenge to understand and effectively scale your services. Container monitoring gives you real-time visibility into the health and performance of your dynamic container infrastructure. Datadog lets you monitor your containers in the context of your entire infrastructure and seamlessly scales with your deployments so you don’t have any blind spots.
