Datadog Network Monitoring | Datadog

Monitor DNS Server Performance With Datadog

Easily identify when DNS is at the root of your application or infrastructure performance issues.


Why Datadog?

Built Using eBPF

Network stats collected at the kernel-level ensuring both security and extremely low overhead so app performance is not impacted

DNS Performance

Both client-side and server-side DNS request performance and queries without having to SSH into individual machines

Slice & Dice With Tags

Requests, errors, and latency metrics for every code deploy including out-of-the-box code version comparisons

Seamless Across Operating Systems

Nearly instant time to value for both set up and investigation

Product Benefits

Troubleshoot DNS server outages with performance and flow metrics

  • Assess the performance of all DNS servers and managed services in one view
  • Quickly isolate servers with the highest response time or error rate to incoming requests
  • Determine when a DNS server issue is on the client-side and server-side
  • Detect the root-cause of network issues by correlating flows with application traces, logs, and processes

Get Unprecedented Visibility into Modern Networks

  • Understand performance using meaningful, human-readable tags
  • Use tags to filter traffic by source and destination
  • Group by anything, from datacenters to teams to individual containers
  • Report on key metrics such as traffic volume and TCP retransmits

Troubleshoot Network Issues in One Unified Platform

  • Reduce MTTD and MTTR with a single source of truth for your entire business
  • Find all logs associated with any flow, regardless of the log origin
  • Seamlessly pivot from network flows to complete request traces
  • Drill down to the processes contributing the most traffic

Optimize Network Traffic Costs and Performance

  • Track inefficient and expensive traffic patterns with the live network map
  • Reveal all the dependencies in your entire network
  • Visualize inefficiencies like improper load balancing
  • Quickly identify the teams responsible for heavy bandwidth consumption

Visualize the Performance of All Your Network Devices

  • Automatically discover and map devices to their most insightful metrics
  • Preemptively catch bandwidth saturation with machine-learning powered, forecasting alerts
  • Monitor SNMP device and network traffic data side-by-side for a comprehensive view into your networked environment

Migrate and Modernize with Confidence

  • Harness the cloud, microservices, and containers without any blind spots
  • Unify on-premise and cloud-based networks in one view
  • Pinpoint underperforming containers, pods, and deployments
  • Investigate cost sinks like cross-zone traffic or bandwidth-hogging services

Deploy Easily, without the Overhead

  • Keep your systems fast with our lightweight, eBPF-based agent and easy onboarding
  • Use one agent for everything, including metrics, traces, and logs
  • Deploy in minutes with 700+ integrations and no devices to install
  • Train teams easily with Datadog’s intuitive interface

The Essential Monitoring and Security Platform for the Cloud Age

Datadog brings together end-to-end traces, metrics, and logs to make your applications, infrastructure, and third-party services entirely observable.
