Graph and analyze Mac OS X metrics over time
Examine system level Mac OS X metrics like memory usage, network usage, CPU, or disk I/O to understand what’s going on in your OS X environment. You can also compare the state of your stressed system to that of a normal one. Datadog stores metrics for 15 months, allowing you to conduct a historical analysis on your system’s performance.
Troubleshoot by correlating OS X metrics with events from other systems
Application performance issues can originate from many different sources. Identifying the specific system or tool causing the issue can be challenging if the performance metrics live in different places. Datadog collects and stores metrics from your entire stack so you can see them altogether. These metrics can then be correlated with one another by simply overlaying OS X metrics with any event in your environment.
Set alerts on OS X metrics
Finally, you’ll want to keep watch on your environment at all times so you’re ready before problems hit. One easy way to do this is by setting alerts when metrics have crossed certain thresholds. For example, you can set an alert on your metrics to notify you if your disk is close to exhaustion or your machine is running out of memory.
