Product Benefits

Monitor Your Docker Containers More Effectively

  • Automatically detect and monitor your containers as quickly as they are created and destroyed
  • Easily analyze the health of all your containers distributed across any cloud environment in a single pane of glass with the cluster agent
  • Avoid resource contention and deficiency by drilling into individual containers running hot with 1 click
  • Collect, monitor, and visualize high-granularity metrics from all your containers at 15s. granularity for 15 months – including CPU, I/O, and memory

Gain Deeper Insights Into Your Container Orchestration

  • Enhance visibility into container orchestration with the live container view
  • Optimize horizontal auto-scaling by connecting Datadog to your HPA and collecting request rate, latency, and available network bandwidth
  • Easily detect clusters over or under-allocating available resources via the auto-generated container map
  • Monitor important per-container metrics, such as resource usage and request and response error rates, on out-of-the-box dashboards for AWS Fargate, Google Cloud Run, and more

Troubleshoot Performance Issues Quickly and Minimize Downtime

  • Isolate bottlenecks and troubleshoot performance problems with distributed tracing across any infrastructure component
  • Seamlessly correlate metrics, logs, traces, and network data to diagnose and resolve issues quickly
  • Analyze the health of individual containers across pods, nodes, namespaces, and cloud providers
  • Test hypotheses in seconds by overlaying Docker and container orchestration events onto time-synchronized graphs

Track Changes in Your Containerized Infrastructure

  • Gain key insights into every container image used in your environment—and about your entire container image ecosystem
  • Understand large-scale trends in security posture and resource utilization with image-specific metric dashboards
  • Reduce costs by spotting cloud registries that you may be paying for but not actively using, as well as images that are taking up unnecessary disk space in your hosts

Eliminate False-Positives and Receive Alerts for Only the Issues that Matter

  • Set up threshold and rate of change alerts for service-level metrics that won’t panic as containers scale down
  • Create smarter alerts that account for daily, weekly, and seasonal fluctuations
  • Proactively prevent outages and errors with forecasts on resource metrics such as CPU and memory
  • Automatically detect unanticipated anomalous events, outliers, and errors with Watchdog

Enhance Visibility with Datadog
