Not sure where to look? Our documentation is split into guides and references. Guides explain how to accomplish a particular task with Datadog, while the references are more general (as you might expect). It might be a good idea to start with the Datadog Overview, which explains Datadog’s capabilities at a high level.

Search for it! If you know roughly what you are looking for, enter it in the search box on the top left of the sidebar.

If you have questions, we’re here to help. You can get in touch with our support team by mentioning @support-datadog in a comment on Datadog itself, or by email, on IRC, or on our customer service site.
