Overview

Datadog Backend Listener for Apache JMeter is an opensource JMeter plugin used to send test results to the Datadog platform. It provides real-time reporting of test metrics like latency, the number of bytes sent and received, and more. You can also send to Datadog complete test results as log entries.

Setup

Installation

The Datadog Backend Listener plugin needs to be installed manually, you can find the latest release and more detailed installation instructions on the repo release page.

Configuration

The plugin has the following configuration options:

NameRequiredDefault valuedescription
apiKeytrueNAYour Datadog API key.
datadogUrlfalsehttps://api.datadoghq.com/api/You can configure a different endpoint, for instance https://api.datadoghq.eu/api/ if your datadog instance is in the EU
logIntakeUrlfalsehttps://http-intake.logs.datadoghq.com/v1/input/You can configure a different endpoint, for instance https://http-intake.logs.datadoghq.eu/v1/input/ if your datadog instance is in the EU.
metricsMaxBatchSizefalse200Metrics are submitted every 10 seconds in batches of size metricsMaxBatchSize.
logsBatchSizefalse500Logs are submitted in batches of size logsBatchSize as soon as this size is reached.
sendResultsAsLogsfalsefalseBy default only metrics are reported to Datadog. To report individual test results as log events, set this field to true.
includeSubresultsfalsefalseA subresult is for instance when an individual HTTP request has to follow redirects. By default subresults are ignored.
samplersRegexfalse.*An optional regex to filter the samplers to monitor.
