Product Benefits

Monitor Containerized Environments With Multidimensional Visibility

  • Automatically detect when containers are created and destroyed to ensure full coverage of your cloud infrastructure
  • Discover and track all your services running on containers, no matter how dynamic or ephemeral
  • Surface critical information about every layer of your Kubernetes clusters with a multidimensional view of your workloads

Manage High-Scale K8s Environments with Confidence

  • Enable low impact monitoring of 10,000+ nodes with the cluster agent
  • Optimize horizontal auto-scaling by connecting Datadog to your HPA and collecting request rate, latency, and available network bandwidth
  • Gain visibility into container orchestration and easily manage Kubernetes pods over or under-allocating available resources via the real-time live container view and auto-generated container map
  • Improve operational costs and reduce excess capacity based on high-granularity historical data

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 by forecasting system-level metrics
  • Automatically detect unanticipated outliers, anomalies, and errors with Watchdog
