Microservice Visualization

Visualize microservices at scale and analyze application performance with Datadog

It is critical to visualize microservices and their dependencies across your entire environment as you modernize your architecture and move workloads to the cloud. Datadog’s unified platform allows you to visualize your stack using a single pane of glass, reducing blind spots and speeding up troubleshooting.


Explore dynamic microservice visualizations

  • Filter and group a view of your entire containerized environment with the Container Map and automatically enroll new containers using Autodiscovery
  • Proactively map service dependencies and set alerts to identify disruptions to your microservices with the Service Map
  • Identify poorly performing containers and pods and visualize microservice network inefficiencies with Network Performance Monitoring
Visualize microservice environments with the Container Map

Monitor and visualize microservices in real time

  • Gain a real-time overview of your container health, resource consumption, logs, and deployments with the Live Container View
  • Explore active processes by filtering and grouping them using tags and drill down into granular process-level metrics with the Live Process View
  • Enhance microservice visualizations by viewing them alongside full stack data in easily configured and time-correlated dashboards
Track and visualize live container views and microservice metrics

Optimize microservices with full stack data

  • Explore and analyze traces from distributed microservices architectures at the span or code level with Datadog APM
  • Search and filter logs using facets and leverage tags to pivot to relevant log events directly from your microservice visualizations
  • Evaluate user experience and journeys by correlating microservices data with frontend metrics, API checks, and browser tests
Visualize microservices alongside metrics, traces, logs
