.NET CLR

Supported OS Windows

Integrationv1.12.1

Overview

Get metrics from the .NET CLR service in real time to:

  • Visualize and monitor .NET CLR states.
  • Be notified about .NET CLR failovers and events.

Setup

Installation

The .NET CLR check is included in the Datadog Agent package. No additional installation is needed on your server.

Configuration

  1. Edit the dotnetclr.d/conf.yaml file, in the conf.d/ folder at the root of your Agent’s configuration directory to start collecting your .NET CLR performance data. See the sample dotnetclr.d/conf.yaml for all available configuration options.
  2. Restart the Agent.

Note: Versions 1.10.0 or later of this check use a new implementation for metric collection, which requires Python 3. For hosts that are unable to use Python 3, or if you would like to use a legacy version of this check, refer to the following config.

Validation

Run the Agent’s status subcommand and look for dotnetclr under the Checks section.
