Microservices Monitoring | Datadog

Full-stack microservices monitoring

Monitor microservices by unifying metrics, traces, logs, and more in one platform.

More organizations are shifting away from monolithic applications toward microservices. While microservices can simplify application building, it can be difficult to visualize all of your microservices and understand their dependencies, leaving you with potential blind spots when you experience a performance issue. Monitoring your microservices with Datadog allows you to visualize how your services interact at a glance so you can quickly locate problems and begin troubleshooting.


Monitor complex microservice dependencies in one place

  • Set data-driven SLAs by incorporating dynamically-tracked upstream SLOs into your service design
  • Monitor microservices and explore their dependencies to remediate single points of failure
  • Prioritize maintenance and optimization of important services by using the service map to identify common dependencies

Investigate possible points of failure across microservices

  • Map and monitor microservices to identify potential choke points, like shared databases, across service boundaries
  • Visualize service interactions to investigate and fix performance issues, like tight couplings, quickly
  • Correlate microservices metrics and application log events to create context when analyzing requests that hit multiple services

Set smart alerts for proactive microservices monitoring

  • Craft and refine alert conditions using boolean logic to silence alert-storms before they start
  • Surface anomalies occuring across your systems to monitor your microservices for potential systemic issues
  • Auto-scale alerts with tags to dynamically enroll new hosts and containers as they come and go
