Speedscale

Supported OS Linux Windows

Overview

This integration publishes traffic replay results from Speedscale into Datadog. This lets you combine your observability data from Datadog with the results of a particular Speedscale replay to investigate the root cause of poor performance. Find and troubleshoot potential performance issues before they show up in production with the Speedscale Datadog integration.

Setup

Configuration

  1. To use this integration you need a Datadog API Key so that events can be submitted into Datadog.

    A best practice is to save this value into an environment variable. Most likely you will store this environment variable in your continuous integration system, but when doing a one-off test you can access it in your terminal like so:

    export DDOG_API_KEY=0
    
  2. Gather the report ID of a specific report that you’d like to upload to Datadog. When working with continuous integration, get the report ID associated with your commit hash. Store this report ID in an environment variable:

    export SPD_REPORT_ID=0
    
  3. With the specific report ID and the Datadog API key, run the speedctl command to export that traffic replay report as a Datadog event.

    speedctl export datadog ${SPD_REPORT_ID} --apiKey ${DDOG_API_KEY}
    {"status":"ok",...}
