PostgreSQL Database Monitoring

Monitor and visualize your most important PostgreSQL database metrics with Datadog database monitoring.

PostgreSQL, or “Postgres,” is an open source, object-relational database system used by organizations such as Cisco, Fujitsu, and Datadog. Using Datadog database monitoring, you can automatically collect PostgreSQL data and monitoring everything in one place. Instead of manually querying your PostgreSQL database, use the Datadog Agent to automatically aggregate metrics and visualize them in a custom dashboard.
