Amazon Simple Workflow Service

Crawler Crawler

Overview

Amazon SWF helps developers build, run, and scale background jobs that have parallel or sequential steps.

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

  2. Install the Datadog - AWS SWF integration.

Log collection

Enable logging

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

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