"Great platform for logs analysis and cloud monitoring"

Comments: Choosing to use Datadog made my work so much easier to accomplish. The logs analysis is one of the best thing that I can have in order to monitor my projects performance and health. This tool performs well and it is really useful. Real time logging works well. Definitely a must have.

Pros: I think that the best features that Datadog has is that you can track and follow logs in real time, something really important to have if your project is live. I like the idea of creating custom views of sets of logs (with custom filters, data parsing and a lot more) and that you can share them with your team.

Cons: It is a bit complicated to set for the first time. Is not quite easy to use or know at first about all the available features that Datadog has. Interface is tricky and can be a blocker sometimes. Following that, if your fields are not mapped in the right way, filters are not that useful.

"Datadog Review"

Comments: Overall it's great monitoring/visualizing tool for any organization and I'd recommend, it would have been great if it had great learning resources to explore it more.

Pros: - The filter functionality is great which lets you filter out errors for quick analysis, can easily create custom dashboards.
- Great Visualizations, easy to set up dashboards/monitors with options do maths like ratios, rates, average, interval.
- It can be easily integrated with other apps like Slack to set alerts for failed jobs.
-

Cons: - A slow learning curve, lack of resources on how to get useful functionality from UI or APIs.
- UI sometimes be bit slower although not bad if you've integrated with multiple external apps.

"Simplified Cloud Monitoring for all environments"

Comments: Excellent solutions for our infrastructure with the opportunity to add more features in the future.

Pros: Super simple to set up the metrics pipeline. Install the respective agent (manually or automation), configure integrations, and away we go. Datadog comes with a plethora of dashboards, integrations, alerting, and many more. There is a rich API which allows you to easily access your data for true day 2 operations. Documentation is well written and complete for the most part. Datadog also offers many additional features such as APM, log management, security monitoring, etc. You can try out the product for free as there are free tiers available.

Cons: Only available in the cloud, if you are in an air gapped situation, you are out of luck. Pricing can get confusing as there are multiple tiers per feature set.

"It looks very sleek but default integrations won't show you much, so a lot of customization needed."

Comments: 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.

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.

"Clear graphs and easy to set up"

Comments: Used the open URL to add dashboard to a large monitor on our workspace to easily spot spikes.

Pros: Really simple set up to monitor our full stack environment. Dashboard is very clear and suitable for both technical and non-technical stakeholders.

Cons: Nothing really. Migrating to any product can be challenging but setup was pretty simple and no key functionality absent.
