Log location

  • For Linux and Mac OS X, Datadog Agent logs are located in the /var/log/datadog/ directory
  • For Windows, Datadog Agent logs are located in the c:\programdata\Datadog\logs directory

The Datadog logs do a rollover every 10MB. When a rollover occurs, one backup is kept (e.g. agent.log.1). If a previous backup exists, it is overwritten on the rollover.
