Get metrics from Convox in real-time to visualize your containers’ performance:



See the Convox documentation to set up Datadog.

Deploy the Datadog Agent

You can deploy the Datadog Agent as a Convox app with a very simple docker-compose.yml manifest:

# check out the repo
$ git clone
$ cd dd-agent

# deploy the agent app and secret
$ convox apps create
$ convox env set API_KEY=<your api key>
$ convox deploy
$ convox scale agent --count=3 --cpu=10 --memory=128

Use a count that matches the InstanceCount parameter of your Rack.

Auto scaling

If autoscaling is enabled on your Rack, you need to dynamically scale the Datadog Agent count to match the Rack instance count.

See the Listening for ECS CloudWatch Events Tutorial for guidance.
