So, you’ve just finished installing the Datadog Agent, or maybe you’re just curious about what (else) Datadog can do for you. This document gives a high level overview of Datadog’s capabilities and how it can help you bring your infrastructure to heel.
Custom integrations are available via our API, many documented by our active user community.
The Agent is open source and you can instrument your own if you’d like.
Once integrations have been configured, data living in a datacenter or in an online service is treated the same throughout Datadog.
All machines show up in the infrastructure overview
Here you can see the tags applied to each machine; as they’re assigned to perform certain roles, tagging allows you to indicate machines have a certain purpose
We do as much as possible to automatically categorize your servers for you, to create structure in your infrastructure with as little work as possible (unlike explicitly creating all your clusters). Thus if a new machine is tagged, you can immediately see the stats for that machine based on what was previously set up for that tag.
