Go

Overview

The Go integration allows you to collect and monitor your Go application logs, traces, and custom metrics.

Setup

Metric collection

See the dedicated documentation for collecting Go custom metrics with DogStatsD.

Trace collection

See the dedicated documentation for instrumenting your Go application to send its traces to Datadog.

Log collection

Available for Agent v6.0+

See the dedicated documentation on how to setup Go log collection to forward your logs to Datadog.
