Products and Services

• Watchdog: Watchdog is an algorithmic feature for APM that automatically detects potential application and infrastructure issues. Watchdog observes trends and patterns in application metrics—like error rate, request rate, and latency—and unexpected behavior. Watchdog evaluates all services and resources without the need to configure a monitor for each service.
• APM; Datadog Application Performance Monitoring (APM or tracing) provides you with deep insight into your application’s performance - from automatically generated dashboards for monitoring key metrics, like request volume and latency, to detailed traces of individual requests - side by side with your logs and infrastructure monitoring. When a request is made to an application, Datadog can see the traces across a distributed system, and we can show you systematic data about precisely what is happening to this request.
• Log Management
• Network Monitoring: Datadog Network Performance Monitoring (NPM) is designed to give you visibility into your network traffic across any tagged object in Datadog: from containers to hosts and services to availability zones. Connection data is aggregated into flows, each showing traffic between one source and one destination, through a customizable network page and network map. Each flow contains network metrics such as throughput, bandwidth, retransmit count, and source/destination information down to the IP, port, and PID levels.
