Crawler Crawler

Overview

AWS OpsWorks is an application management service that makes it easy to deploy and operate applications of all shapes and sizes.

Enable this integration to see in Datadog all your OpsWorks 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 OpsWorks is checked under metric collection.

  2. Install the Datadog - AWS OpsWork integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

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

Note: If you log to a S3 bucket, make sure that amazon_ops_work 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 OpsWorks logs in the AWS console:
