Next-Generation Application Performance Monitoring | Datadog

Next-generation APM

Monitor, troubleshoot, and optimize end-to-end application performance

Full observability for modern applications

Collect, search, and analyze traces across fully distributed architectures.

  • Quickly find traces that match a particular user, customer, error code, endpoint, service, or custom tag
  • Drill down from a global overview to a single customer’s request trace or particular line of code
  • Seamlessly correlate application performance to logs and underlying infrastructure metrics
  • Monitor containers, cloud instances, on-premise and hybrid architectures in one place

Navigate applications seamlessly with the Service Map

Datadog is built to support live root-cause analysis to reduce resolution time and help teams release features more quickly.

  • Automatically map data flows and cluster services based on their interdependencies in real-time
  • Investigate service disruptions by isolating the services that interact with the application of interest
  • One-click navigation from global alerts to relevant traces, logs, and infrastructure metrics

App Analytics with infinite cardinality

Datadog tracks every request so you can slice and dice your distributed APM data on the fly using tags.

  • Drill down on performance metrics using any tag at infinite cardinality
  • Use machine learning to identify error and latency outliers
  • Query the 10 slowest customers on an endpoint, or find the experience of a specific customer on any service
  • Break down latency with end-to-end flame graphs across distributed services

Advanced dashboarding and alerting

Datadog is scalable, extensible, and easily automated to reduce overhead and ensure the right data is accessible to everyone who needs it.

  • Use machine-learning-based Watchdog to auto-detect and surface anomalies with zero configuration
  • Reduce dozens of dashboards to just one template — instantly re-scope by customer, endpoint, or any other tag
  • Build drag-and-drop performance dashboards or automate dashboarding via API

Auto-instrumentation for distributed tracing

Datadog APM can automatically trace requests across many popular libraries and frameworks.

  • Deploy APM in seconds with a one-command install on most platforms
  • Get instant visibility via integrations with web frameworks like Laravel, ASP.NET MVC, Django, Ruby on Rails, Gin, and Spring
  • Support for OpenTracing — the vendor-neutral standard for instrumentation
