Actionable Alerting

Eliminate false positives and receive actionable alerts driven by machine learning.

Datadog alerts use tags and machine learning to efficiently identify problems in your infrastructure, applications, and services. Every alert is specific, actionable, and contextual—even in large-scale and highly ephemeral environments—which helps minimize downtime and prevents alert fatigue. And with native SLO and SLA tracking, you can prioritize and address the issues that matter most to your business.

Monitor ephemeral systems without fatigue

  • Use tags to create targeted alerts on sets of hosts, containers, or any other component of your applications or infrastructure, including serverless functions
  • Automatically apply alerts to new hosts so you can scale up your environment without blind spots
  • Combine multiple alerts with sophisticated composite monitors to minimize alert noise

Ensure optimal performance with machine learning-powered alerts

  • Use Watchdog to automatically detect anomalies within your infrastructure, applications, and services
  • Conduct root cause analysis faster by viewing intelligently grouped anomalies, metrics, and stack traces that are related to the surfaced issue
  • Start receiving Watchdog alerts immediately, without any setup or configuration
