Datadog Database Monitoring allows you to view query metrics and explain plans from all of your databases in a single place. With Database Monitoring, you can quickly pinpoint costly and slow queries and drill into precise execution details to address bottlenecks. Additionally, query and host metric correlation makes it easy to identify and understand the impact of resource constraints on database performance.


Monitor your databases with query metrics

  • Identify problematic queries with valuable metrics such as average latency, total execution time, and number of rows queried
  • Leverage historical query performance data to track long-term trends
  • Get granular insight into query activity with automatically sampled queries

Analyze explain plans to optimize query performance

  • Dive into explain plans to identify inefficient query patterns that hinder performance
  • Visualize differences between multiple explain plans for individual queries in order to identify hotspots
  • Seamlessly pivot from explain plans to related metrics to understand how inefficiencies impact performance
Explain Plans

Correlate query metrics with database and infrastructure metrics

  • View query metrics alongside system performance metrics from your Postgres and MySQL databases
  • Monitor query-level and host-level metrics together to better understand how resource constraints affect database performance
  • Leverage out-of-the-box integration with the rest of the Datadog platform, including dashboards, monitors, SLO tracking, and advanced formulas and functions

Extract valuable insights without compromising database security

  • Expand your team’s access to query metrics without providing explicit database access to every user
  • Keep sensitive data secure with automatic obfuscation of PII in explain plans and query metrics
  • Scale DBM usage with your needs and manage a large number of databases securely
