Pros

This application monitors my data in the most efficient and easy way. The overall experience is wonderful for me and I would definitely recommend investing into this software.
Datadog is an amazing cloud monitoring solution that provides great insight and alerting for our platform.
So nice to have that event stream and subscriptions. And it's very easy to share your findings with colleagues.

Pros

Sematext support was overall positive and they are super helpful when integrating with the tech stack.
Sematext is very easy to navigate by providing a nice interface environment without complicated clutter. The documentation is also amazing.
Sematex has impressed us in recent months for its ability to deliver robust tools for analyzing and mining the information present in our logs.

Cons

Had similar problem with another product and they could tell me the exact lines of the config and registry that needed changing.
Very poor set of solutions for Microsoft Azure monitoring. Very hard for new users, documentation is not very straightforward, so you'll need to spend a lit of time communicationg with support.
Sometimes it is very difficult to understand the graph report and it is bit technical to use. The various metric types require a little bit of reading and understanding.

Cons

Missing feature: Filtering the context view (e.g. if there is an exception, displaying its context works, but I cannot limit that context).
Documentation missing for old agents - Ubuntu < 16. Agent once crashed - cause is still unknown.
At times the data showed up slightly delayed than our expectations, however it is not something that happened frequently enough to escalate the concern.

Datadog Sniffs Out Problems Fast

Reviewed 4 years ago

Datadog is an amazing cloud monitoring solution that provides great insight and alerting for our platform.

Pros

Datadog provides a great, easy-to-use and extensible interface for displaying data out of your own systems, providing you the insight to sniff out issues as they arise.

Cons

No matter how many integrations Datadog builds in, there will always be gaps, and some of those gaps hit our needs. As such, we need to use several monitoring solutions to cover our whole platform.

Datadog

Many integration options and plethora of dashboards and visualizations

Reviewed 5 years ago

Dependable and reliable solution.

Pros

Configuring monitoring tools is not always trivial, half of the battle is making sure metrics are flowing. Datadog is very flexible when it comes to sending metrics to their cloud. You can use collectD, statsd, file beats, or the 84523982 other options. Our orchestration software already had an option to enable Datadog collection. Once the data is in place, you need to figure out what metrics are relevant. Datadog has a number of pre-built dashboards tweaked for popular software systems. If you are using something homegrown, they can provide recommendations and optimizations after enough data has been ingested. API and documentation are top notch and we were able to build integrations quite easily.

Cons

Datadog is purely cloud-based system so there's no on-prem option, only SaaS. Depending on your company, this may be a deal-breaker since all of your metrics data is hosted in the cloud. Since it's a SaaS based service, it won't be easy to move data to another service. Occasionally web UI will bog down but it's fairly performant for the most part.

"Data-driven insights for smarter decision-making."

Reviewed a year ago

I've been using DataDog for a few months now and I'm really happy with it. It's a great monitoring and analytics platform for applications and infrastructure. It's easy to set up and configure, it's reliable, and it provides a lot of useful information to help me troubleshoot and monitor my applications. The dashboards and graphs are easy to understand and are great for getting an overview of how things are performing. The alerting and notifications are very useful, and I'm able to quickly identify and address any issues. Overall, I'm very satisfied with DataDog and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a reliable and comprehensive monitoring and analytics platform.

Pros

Datadog provides real-time insights into the performance of applications, servers, and services. It helps you quickly identify and troubleshoot issues before they become critical.Datadog is easy to set up and use. It requires minimal configuration and supports various cloud services and integrations, It provides a comprehensive monitoring system for both on-premises and cloud-based applications.

Cons

Limited Customization Options: While Datadog provides a lot of pre-built dashboards and visualizations, it does not support extensive customizations.Datadog is a high-end monitoring platform, and its pricing reflects that. It can be expensive for small businesses, especially those who don’t have a large budget for monitoring software.

Datadog is a cloud solution to monitor your services, it s really East to setup, just install a local agent or deploy it with automated scripts. You can get a map, service by service of your performance latencies... no need to manage datadog server because it is offered in SaaS.

It's really helpful to monitor your development and production environment under one platform provided you know how to configure it effectively.

Pros

The vast no of integration you can do with your cloud, whether its AWS Azure or Google, is phenomenal. The pre installed dashboards really help to set it up quickly. The notebook feature is quite useful too, if you are not ready to spend much on dashboards. Overall, nice all in one solution to capture logs from cloud and analyze them.

Cons

The metric creation process is not very easy. If you want to create metrics from logs, it gets more complicated.

Cons

The datadog user interface is very hard to learn and with the minimum training anyone cannot operate it fully also a lot of integrations are very difficult to operate.

The gold standard for cloud Monitoring

Reviewed 2 years ago

Before Datadog out logging and monitoring was spread out over different services, both home built and cloud based. With Datadog we were able to consolidate everything in one place and synergy effects of that has been amazing.

Pros

If you can afford it. Get Datadog.It's a phenomenal product that keeps getting better every day.Especially if you're using multiple clouds.There are tons of integrations that gives you out of the box dashboards and metrics. Logs are easy to ingest from basically everywhere.It's expensive but the pricing is easy to understand and keep track of.

Cons

It's expensive, there is no other way to say it. But they work hard to make it worthwhile, and for us it is.Beyond that I can't really think of anything.

The setup of this tool is pretty much given and hassle free. The best thing i chose it for my company is that it syncs up with cloud (Azure, AWS, Google) easily and the graphs and the metrics display are applaudable.

Compatibility with the mobile platform is what i am looking for next in the line, hopefully they do that. And security is also a big question mark. And if the prices come down a bit, that will be a huge plus for them.

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.

Datadog

Helpful monitoring tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

I'm not a DevOps engineer by any means; just a member of a customer support organization. However, I use Datadog to quickly check in on reports of downtime or slow page loads from our customers, and can quickly gather the information I need to confirm those reports, to see if any issues are still occurring that need a quick resolution.

Pros

Datadog is very helpful in reviewing the status of apps and servers for our system. It's easy to see how things are doing at a glance, reviewing when an issue started/ended, etc.

Cons

The software isn't intuitive to the newest user, unless they are familiar with with the setup and maintenance of cloud frameworks; but that's not important, as it's meant for those users in the first place. It's quick enough to learn for your own purposes if you're only there to see the current status at a glance.

I was hoping this would be a Splunk alternative

Pros

Datadog is useful for visualizing and monitoring your cloud applications. If you have agents on you devices, it can analyze a ton of information coming in and show it to you, but that's where it ends, at least, as far as I could figure out in my free trial.

Cons

I was very hopeful of this software, but I didn't want to throw agents from a product I've never used before on my servers and instances, so I tried to upload a data pull ( about 500,000 log entries) to Datadog, to see what it could do, but there's no way to upload a csv/txt file to the software. It has to be via agents on your services. I know that metadata would be missing from a csv, but it seems like a major oversight to not be able to accept a csv of logs for a new user to experiment at low risk.
