Pros: Datadog provides a way of having a lot of information about your systems, clusters and infrastructure in only one site, being able to analyze valuable data for your company. It is possible to create alarms and notifications when overpassing some threshold or value, for example, when a service is down in your systems of when the CPU gets a high percentage of usage.

It integrates pretty well with tons of services and systems, such as Amazon Web Services, Apache, Nginx, several databases, and a long etcetera. Also, it is possible to send notifications to apps like Slack or Hipchat.

Cons: Datadog is not very easy to use at the beginning and it needs a little bit of investigation but it is worth to learn it.

Pros: Datadog's Windows support is great, the Windows agent supports detailed IIS and MSSQL statistics. Their RabbitMQ support is good as well - providing good insight into queues. Customizable dashboards are very handy as well.

Cons: The User interface generally is good but in some instances can be a bit too technical to use.

Overall: Datadog has great support for a variety of different third party systems - Windows machines, linux machines, AWS instances, pretty much anything you can imagine. You can easily slice and dice stats on a good looking dashboard. Provides a good one stop view of your environment.

Recommendations to other buyers: They have great customer support if you get stuck on something!

Pros: I noticed that this monitoring system is very flexible, you can track pretty much any metric, which is great.

Great integration with many services like AWS, Chef, Couchbase, JVM, HAProxy, MySQL etc.

Dashboard functionality is easy. Comes with UI, UI is simply designed but supports all the key functionalities that you would expect from a counter services, and to be able to create dashboard based on counters.

Cons: Noticed that the more data you have, the slower response Datadog service will become, when you query the service.

Query a specific counter, as well as when the counter contains high dimensional data, which is normal, we haven't yet tested what is the upper limit for how much data it can decently handle.

But we have been very satisfied using Datadog, and we feel that it should be enough for small to mid size company.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 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.

Very good experience

Pros: The best about datadog is the simplicity. Ranging from the dashboard to the addons everything is done smoothly and in a proper manner.

The pricing is very fair and the free tier allows many to explore it's possibilities.

Cons: The dashboard could expand a bit more, also the ping are quite inconsistent. I have tested them together with other services and datadog throws more false negatives than other tools.

The various metric types require a little bit of reading and understanding. You'll need to choose the appropriate type when submitting data, or else it'll be tough to make sense of it later.

Pros: The implementation is easy.

Let you know in real time if your server is down or is failing.

The best tool I found.

It's always sending mails when the server fails in any way.

Cons: Should have mobile app or mobile notifications.

If you are not in the programming field you should get someone. The code is easy to implement but if you don't know the right place to call at the right function (assuming you have datadog code on a lib of your system) you wont get the data you need or in the way you need it.

Overall: Let me know every time when my server is down. Great monitoring tool.

Pros: At the initial install of the trial I loved it. Its all we required in an app of this nature with a sys monitoring system and an API. Made life a lot simpler for the business needing this software I was advising. They are very happy with it and continue to use it now.

Cons: No real cons that spring to mind. A great product. I would recommend starting with a list of what you need from software, then what you would like then a nice to have list. See how many ticks this software gets. Compare it to at least two pieces of other software of the same nature before making your final decision. This is what I recommend for any piece of software. Also, check out their own forms of customer support, and social media sites to see what other customers have had to say about the software.

Pros: The integration is fantastic, allowing me to see what's going on at a high level. It's extremely nice to be able to tap into their API from anywhere & install their agent on any server. Along with all that one great feature is to prevent unexpected bills from pulling too many instances, saving me a ton of money.

Cons: Moving graphs can be difficult due to space when you try to move them horizontally but vertically is fine. Pulling in graphs, while simple, can still be difficult to use when resizing & color coordinating, but it's minor.

Pros: I liked it very much. So nice to have that event stream and subscriptions. And it's very easy to share your findings with colleagues.

Cons: Default setup is just empty.

These plugins they list as available will give you only so very basic info, that it's totally worthless.

We had to write our own plugins for each and every service and part of our system.

And the support team ignored my questions regarding future improvements in Kubernetes plugin.

Overall: It allowed us to jumpstart our monitoring.

But in the end we had to switch to a different SaaS provider, even though it costs little bit more, and it's not so well known and widely marketized.

Monitoring Made Simple

Jul 23, 2014
5/5
Overall

Comments: After setting up Datadog, the value was immediately apparent. The instrumentation provided out of the box changed hours of troubleshooting to find the source of a problem in to minutes. While it used to take days or weeks to set up instrumentation, Datadog provides tools that make setup and installation simple. We use Chef at SimpleReach and in about 10 minutes, I had Datadog monitoring everything in the infrastructure. Spent a few minutes creating alerts for application metrics and turned what used to be a few weeks of work into a few hours. Coming from a systems administration background, I can't say enough good things about Datadog.

Pros: Easy setup. Wide range of integrations with common applications. Easy to create custom graphs and metrics on the fly.

Cons: If you don't already have your applications instrumented with statsd, then it can a little catching up. Also, their default set of metrics limits you to 100 metrics per server (which can be changed easily).

Pros: First of all I like the Name of this software and its Logo! So cute! Besides that this is a great monitoring tool. It is cloud based solution, it keeps present and historical data, so you can analyze if there are some problems or logs in your system and then fix them. Datadog integrates very well into other systems.

Cons: You must be a bit experienced user to install and configurate this software. It is not so easy to build your own solutions if you need. You have to contact customer support too often during first steps, aithough contact center is good and helpful.

Comments: We recently flipped from using an older SNMP based monitoring system and couldn't be happier. From the initial install during our trial I was smitten. It was everything I would want in an application and system monitoring system all wrapped up in a beautiful API.

Pros: Easy... seriously dummy proof. Robust - So many integration's and easy write your own plugins. Solid API with great documentation. It's StatsD and Graphite, at the push of a button.

Cons: Somewhat expensive. Doesn't have an integration with every single application? I actually have to do some work... That's all I can think of....

Comments: We're using Datadog to monitor our many servers and various types of services, which has always been a hassle. Datadog allows us to quickly see health of our entire system, quick and reliant alerts for our custom criteria which target only the people in the team that need to see and react accordingly. It's been a breeze to setup and tweak.

Pros: Easy setup, easy to use, great customer support, quite an eye candy.

Cons: No significant cons, though I'd like to be able to monitor RDS health without integrating to the entire AWS.

Datadog is easy to use and is very powerful. Used in a variety of ways to track metrics across apps.

Recommendations to other buyers: I feel . . . this is built for a backend developer to monitor the smallest little things, for Windows Server monitoring I would push you toward LogicMonitor which is what I ended up choosing!

Overall

Comments: We've been customers of DataDog for over two years. In short, they're fantastic and I recommend them to everyone. You can setup monitoring on your servers in 5 minutes, and integration with your app via statsd is simple too. We use both the screenboards and dashboards to see what's going on across our servers and apps in realtime, with alerts set for thresholds we want to monitor. Highly recommended.

Beautiful Monitoring tools for servers. You can monitor the health instantly and just right way.

Comments: Datadog takes away a lot of overhead in maintaining monitoring infrastructure. This allows us to focus resources on our core services. It was quick to trial and proved useful during our load tests and performance tuning excercise.

Pros: Fantastically easy to setup and install. Works well with automation tools like Ansible to get it installed on a fleet of servers. Customer support is second to none!

Cons: Have to be a bit careful about AWS EC2 integrations.

really good

Comments: Datadog is a great application for very specific uses - To me, it feels like it was made to monitor AWS and AWS only not Azure. But it actually can monitor Azure and docker and chef as well but I still feel like Azure was an afterthought.
