"Datadog as Perfect monitoring tool."

What do you like best?

Perfect monitoring tool.

You can monitor your infrastructure as on premise as in the cloud by monitoring performance counters of different applications and collecting information from logs.

You can monitor your infrastructure as in real time mode or just receiving alerts for example to email.

It allows you to use different ready solutions with predefined logic for to monitor even different software such as: SQL Server, MySQL and so on.

It can be integrated with different products such as slack, where you can receive different alerts and where slacks bot can perform setuped actions.

You can create different dashboards for your convenience.

What do you dislike?

No suitable for all cloud services, for example if you're going to monitor your infrastructure in Azure it would be better to use Azure's Log Analytics.

This solution is not for non-experienced users and required time to learn it . Features used in free price tiers very limited for example no alert capabilities.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Not suitable for all cases but can be used in some ones. If you are using Azure you can use it's native tools, but if you're going to monitor AWS or on premise infrastructure it is good choice, plus it has several pricing tiers to test and decide if it is suable for your company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring premise and AWS infrastructure.

This monitoring tool can be accessed from any device from anywhere by using app or just browser thats very convenient.

"Flexible monitoring for your solutions "

What do you like best?

Datadog allows monitoring of everything you need without deploying additional hardware or utilizing storage in your datacenter. Most of your possible needs are covered by API marketplace, where you can find lots of solutions for different use cases. You have access to both current state of resources and history of this state, so you can analyze your issues in retrospective manner to find out what was going on that time. Monitoring of both availability and performance of your services by utilizing performance counters, log analytics and alerting on specific events. Great email and communications tools integration for notification purposes, allows to monitor your systems proactively and find possible issues before actual impact for your resources.

What do you dislike?

Complex APIs settings to get desired result. No off-line solutions and tools, cloud residence is cool and modern approach, but some systems can not be exposed to public internet because of security concerns, and local proxies can affect the speed of data transfer

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even wide range of use cases will not cover all your needs, sometimes you willmhave to find another solution.

"Monitoring is one of most important parts in DevOps process"

What do you like best?

Datadog is cloud based solution, perfectly working with monitoring of your cloud deployments, wide range of different solutions on marketplace, good set of APIs, log analytics. You can not only see current state of your resources, but have a historical data for the same, so you can find the bottlenecks in your systems and get rid of these. If you will not find what you need on marketplace you can always develop your own solution and use it. Somebody told that it is very hard for new users, but it is not true, you just need to have some patience, when exploring the documentation. And you can always contact helpdesk, team if very responsible and will be able to help you finding appropriate solution for your needs

What do you dislike?

Not very good for Azure if you are going to use marketplace solutions. Most of these are made for AWS and you will have to make something similar by yourself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Contact helpdesk prior to build your own solutions, maybe you just didn`t find the same on marketplace

"Functional monitoring"

What do you like best?

A lot of features that are able to work out of a box, you just need to install agents and you are in. You can find much more special APIs on marketplace to extend basic functionality. Good analytics platform allows to find bottlenecks in your infrastructure and fix at proactive basis instead of reaction on incident. Does not requires additional resources on your infrastructure as Datadog is provided as a service. The only really working Docker container monitoring solution we were able to find

What do you dislike?

Installation and configuration can be painful for non-experienced users. Not very clear reporting capabilities. Most solution requires additional customization to be suitable for your needs. Not very straightforward pricing policy often makes users confusing about budget planning for Datadog

Recommendations to others considering the product

Painful in setup, but incredible after go-live

"Amazingly easy to setup"

What do you like best?

Its super easy to setup and start monitoring your system/clusters. The Infrastructure Host map and dashboards are impressive and give a quick overview of your "Health Dashboard" to be able to diagnose the issue with a server/cluster and quickly fix it. The "Events" tab gives a quick overview of all the "state" changes that occurred during the given time - period so that we have a time series trend to look at. Also the priority of an event can be changed/raised to be able to quickly take an action.

What do you dislike?

Setting up Monitoring/Alerts is a bit non - intuitive to begin with. It takes a bit of understanding to be able to configure the alerts.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is definitely good value for money. It is a cheap alternative to start on a month-to-month basis to evaluate the product before being able to make an annual commitment.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Monitoring custom Dashboards with multiple integrations and API access make it easy to quickly visualize the cluster health and operations. The Integrated Dashboards which come pre-populated with critical metrics are a great feature to quickly start monitoring your cluster.
