A recent press release states, “Datadog, the essential monitoring service for modern cloud environments, today announced the general availability of Datadog APM. This new expansion of the company’s existing infrastructure monitoring platform will enable development and operations (DevOps) teams to quickly troubleshoot issues in highly distributed, service-oriented applications that use microservices, containers, and run across hybrid cloud environments. ‘We believe that application and infrastructure monitoring should be seamlessly integrated in hybrid cloud environments where code and infrastructure changes happen often and simultaneously,’ said Amit Agarwal, Chief Product Officer at Datadog. ‘With the new Datadog APM extension, enterprises will now be able to monitor every part of their service-oriented applications from infrastructure to code, finding the root cause of issues much faster’.”
The release goes on, “Datadog APM supports performance optimization and outage diagnosis to reduce the impact of costly downtime for large-scale environments. Highlights include: Quick installation via a hosted SaaS solution that takes minutes to configure; Automatic tracing of individual requests from end to end across hosts and services; Flame graphs for quickly and accurately identifying the most frequently used code paths; Easily customizable dashboards for data aggregation and correlation; Built-in collaboration between dev and ops teams; Smart alerting via email, SMS, and cloud-based collaboration tools; Anomaly detection based on machine learning; Transparent tag-based aggregation of performance data from microservices, containers, and other ephemeral hosts.”
