See the Convox documentation to set up the Datadog integration.

Deploy the Datadog Agent

You can deploy the Datadog Agent as a Convox app by using a docker-compose.yml manifest. Use a count that matches the InstanceCount parameter of your Rack.

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

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

Run convox deploy to deploy Datadog Agent into ECS.

Auto scaling

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

For more information, see the Listening for ECS CloudWatch Events tutorial.
