Overview

Amazon CloudSearch is a managed service in the AWS Cloud that makes it simple and cost-effective to set up, manage, and scale a search solution.

Enable this integration to see in Datadog all your CloudSearch metrics.

Setup

Installation

If you haven’t already, set up the Amazon Web Services integration first.

Metric collection

  1. In the AWS integration tile, ensure that CloudSearch is checked under metric collection.

  2. Install the Datadog - AWS CloudSearch integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

Configure Amazon CloudSearch to send logs either to a S3 bucket or to Cloudwatch.

Note: If you log to a S3 bucket, make sure that amazon_cloudsearch is set as Target prefix.

Send logs to Datadog

  1. If you haven’t already, set up the Datadog log collection AWS Lambda function.
  2. Once the lambda function is installed, manually add a trigger on the S3 bucket or Cloudwatch log group that contains your Amazon CloudSearch logs in the AWS console:
