Common Questions

Infrastructure

Infrastructure

How do you define a host?

A host is any physical or virtual OS instance that you monitor with Datadog.

How do I monitor containers?

The Datadog Agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it can collect metrics from its neighboring containers and from the host itself. Depending on your plan, you can monitor 10 or 20 containers free for each host license.

Additional containers will be billed at $0.002 per container per hour. In addition, you can purchase prepaid containers at $1 per container per month.

What is a custom metric?

Datadog was designed to allow you to monitor your own custom applications and business metrics—not just your infrastructure. You can send any and all of your organization's important metrics to Datadog for graphing, alerting, correlation, anomaly detection and more. Example uses: monitoring ad revenue, the rate at which shopping carts are abandoned, or the health of an in-game economy. Many customers find these metrics invaluable, especially when combined with infrastructure metrics.

How can I send custom metrics and events?

You can send Datadog custom metrics in three ways:

  • The Datadog Agent ships with DogStatsD so you can submit custom metrics via the Agent’s non-blocking API functions for many programming languages.
  • The Datadog Agent allows for the creation of custom integrations via plugins to the Agent. This plugin system allows the Agent to collect custom metrics on your behalf. Integrations which are contributed back to the Datadog Agent convert to standard metrics.
  • Datadog also has a full-featured API that you can send your metrics to—either directly over HTTP or with a language-specific library.
What's included in Serverless Functions?
  • 40 custom metrics included per Serverless Function
  • Service Map for Serverless
  • Specialized Serverless view and out-of-the-box dashboards
  • Critical Lambda metrics for cold starts, memory usage, invocations, and errors
  • End-to-end distributed tracing between Lambda functions and hosts
  • Lambda Layers for real-time custom metrics
  • All metrics, events, and metadata from Datadog's full AWS integration
How can I be sure my data is secure?

Security is our top priority. This includes, universal HTTPS, strong TLS configuration, and HTTP Strict Transport Security. Our Agent is open-source, which means it can be reviewed to ensure it meets your security requirements.

Are there other billing options?

Annual, monthly and hourly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.

Do you have special offerings for partners?

We’re always looking to partner with technology and service providers and resellers. See our Partners page for more.

APM

What languages do you support?
Java, Python, Ruby, Go, Node, .NET and PHP.
Can I run APM with containers?
Yes, you can run APM in a containerized environment.
What kind of billing plan do I need to run APM?
APM can be purchased in addition to either Pro or Enterprise plans.
Can I add custom instrumentation on top of Datadog’s out-of-the-box instrumentation?
Yes. We provide auto-instrumentation for popular libraries and frameworks, but you can easily add custom instrumentation if desired.
How does APM work?
We provide comprehensive documentation here and encourage you to take a read.
Can I modify the retention period of trace events for Trace Search?
Yes. While our default retention for trace events is 15 days at $1.70 per million events per month, you can also choose 7 days at $1.27 per million or 30 days at $2.50 per million. If you need longer, please reach out to your Customer Success or Sales rep to customize.

Log Management

How do you define retention?

The retention period is the number of days your logs are searchable and analyzable. After this period, logs disappear from your index(es).

Logs removed from your index(es) do not have to be gone forever! Check out our Log Archives for long-term storage options.

What happens if I send an unexpectedly high volume of logs?

By committing to a monthly volume of logs, you aren’t rate-limited based on a single day's volume. Send as much as you need on any given day without losing visibility. Assuming your average is lower on other days, your bill is unaffected.

In those cases where you have a big month, not to worry! You maintain complete visibility and pay for additional services (+50%) only on the volume that exceeds your commitment.

I know my consumption in GB/day: how do I convert it into millions of log events?

Log events come in all shapes and sizes, which is precisely why we offer event-based pricing! We want to encourage rich logs to provide the most value.

The best way to get the number of log events during your Datadog trial is to run a count query over the last 24 hours and multiply by 30 days to estimate for the month. This can, of course, also be done in your current log management solution, if you have one.

How do I monitor containers?

The Datadog Agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it can collect metrics and logs from its neighboring containers and from the host itself.

How can I be sure my data is secure?

Security is our top priority. This includes, TCP/SSL Strict Transport Security, agent-level scrubbing and SOC 2 compliance. Our Agent is open-source, which means it can be reviewed to ensure it meets your security requirements.

Are there other billing options?

Annual and monthly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.

How can I manage my highly dynamic log volume in a cost-effective way without losing visibility?
We've designed our Log Management offer knowing from day 1 that managing large and fluctuating log volumes is a common problem. We have various innovative solutions for this, which you can learn more about from our dedicated article here.
Can I subscribe to Log Management without using Datadog Infrastructure or APM?
Having all your infrastructure, APM, and log data under one roof is something we definitely encourage, but you can also subscribe only to Datadog's Log Management. Learn how to configure only log collection here.

Synthetics

How does the Web Recorder work?
The Web Recorder allows you to record browser tests simply by interacting with a page as an end-user would. Our chrome extension allows you to view your site on one side of the app, and recorded steps on the left. You can rearrange, delete, or add assertions as needed, all through our easy to use interface. This makes it incredible easy for anyone, regardless of technical knowledge, to create and maintain these tests.
Can I import my Selenium Tests into Datadog?
No, we recommend creating your tests in Datadog via the Web Recorder as your scripted tests break or become outdated. Creating tests via the Web Recorder is very intuitive and simple, and takes only a couple minutes.
What are Self-Maintaining Browser Tests?
Datadog’s Self-Maintaining Browser Tests are AI-powered and intelligently re-identify elements on a page and update themselves even as web pages are changed or evolve over time. This reduces the number of false alarms triggered and time spent updating scripted tests.
What counts as a test run?
Each simulation of a full transaction (25 steps) counts as a single test run. A single test containing 50 steps counts as 2 test runs on each execution. So, running a 51 step test (counting as 3 test runs) every 15 minutes from 5 different locations and 2 different devices means the test will count as 120 test runs in an hour.
Are you able to alert on Synthetic monitors?
Yes, alerts are built in and triggered automatically when your tests fail. Datadog also integrates with your favorite collaboration/communication tools such as Slack, Pagerduty, ServiceNow, and more.
What’s the difference between API Tests and Browser Tests?
API Tests monitor single endpoints or URLs, whereas Browser Tests monitor business transactions or user journeys that may involve multiple steps and pages.
Can I view endpoint requests end-to-end?
Yes, with the out-of-the-box APM integration, you are able to tie back any synthetic tests to their corresponding back-end, code-level insights for minimal mean time to resolution.
