Setup Data Streams Monitoring for Node.js

Data Streams Monitoring is not supported in the AP1 region.

Prerequisites

To start with Data Streams Monitoring, you need recent versions of the Datadog Agent and Node.js libraries:

Installation

Node.js uses auto-instrumentation to inject and extract additional metadata required by Data Streams Monitoring for measuring end-to-end latencies and the relationship between queues and services. To enable Data Streams Monitoring, set the DD_DATA_STREAMS_ENABLED environment variable to true on services sending messages to (or consuming messages from) Kafka.

For example:

environment:
  - DD_DATA_STREAMS_ENABLED: "true"
