Database Monitoring | Datadog

Modern database monitoring

Monitor database metrics, traces, and logs from your entire stack

Database monitoring lets you proactively track the health and performance of your databases to minimize downtime and troubleshoot problems. As your tech stack grows, it can become increasingly difficult to monitor all of the databases that your services rely on. Datadog’s platform allows you to collect, visualize, and alert on all of your database performance data and application dependencies in one unified view, speeding up troubleshooting, simplifying investigations, and encouraging cross-team collaboration.


Unify database monitoring in a single platform

  • Monitor database metrics like query throughput, query execution performance, connections, or buffer pool usage in real time
  • Easily identify issues like slow-running queries, bottlenecks, error rates with end-to-end application tracing and full latency breakdowns
  • Continuously ingest and enrich log events and automatically detect log patterns to identify database related issues like slow query logs

Troubleshoot database performance issues in context

  • Start collecting data in minutes with turnkey database monitoring integrations including Cassandra, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB
  • Gain critical visibility and explore your database and application interdependencies with the real time Service Map
  • Trace application requests, including database queries, to identify bottlenecks in your code in popular languages like Java, Python and Go

Visualize and alert on database performance data

  • Seamlessly navigate between database logs, infrastructure metrics, and application traces in a single pane of glass
  • Clone and customize out-of-the-box database monitoring dashboards using templatized drag-and-drop graphs and widgets
  • Set intelligent alerts to monitor database conditions, like latency percentiles (p95, p99, etc.), and reduce alert fatigue with flexible alert logic
