Datadog Database Monitoring provides deep visibility into databases across all of your hosts. Dig into historical query performance metrics, explain plans, and host-level metrics all in one place, to understand the health and performance of your databases and troubleshoot issues as they arise.
Datadog Database Monitoring supports self-hosted and managed cloud versions of Postgres and MySQL. To get started with Datadog Database Monitoring, configure your database and install the Datadog Agent. For setup instructions, select your database technology:
Navigate to Database Monitoring by clicking APM > Databases in the UI.
The Query Metrics view shows historical query performance for normalized queries. Visualize performance trends by infrastructure or custom tags such as datacenter availability zone, and set alerts for anomalies.
The Query Samples view helps you understand which queries are running at a given time. Compare each execution to the average performance of the query and related queries.
Explain Plans help you understand how the database plans to execute your queries.
Quickly pinpoint problem areas by viewing database and system metrics together on enriched integration dashboards for both self-hosted and cloud-managed instances. Clone dashboards for customization and enhancement with your own custom metrics. Click the Dashboards link at the top of the Query Metrics and Query Samples pages to go to the Database Monitoring dashboards.
