SLO Summary Widget

Setup

Use the SLO Summary widget to track your SLOs (Service Level Objectives) on screenboards and timeboards. You can use Datadog’s Service Level Objectives page to create new SLOs and view all existing ones. You can then select an existing SLO and use the SLO Summary widget to display it on any dashboard.

Configuration

  1. On the dashboard page, add an SLO Summary widget.
  2. Select an SLO from the dropdown menu.
  3. Select up to three different time windows.

Note: SLOs can be configured with 7-, 30- or 90-day time windows. If an SLO has a 7-day time window configured, you can select Week to date as a time window. If an SLO has a 30-day time window configured, additionally you can select Previous week as a time window. If an SLO has a 90-day time window configured, additionally you can select Month to date or Previous month as a time window.
