Alerting

Alerting

Monitoring all of your infrastructure in one place wouldn’t be complete without the ability to know when critical changes are occurring. Datadog gives you the ability to create monitors that actively check metrics, integration availability, network endpoints, and more.

Configure monitors, notify your teams, and manage alerts at a glance on the Alerting platform.

Create monitors

Configure Monitors: Create monitors that look over metrics, events, logs, integration availability, network endpoints, and more.

Notify your teams

Monitor Notifications: Set up notifications when creating monitors to keep your team informed of issues. Route the notifications to the correct people, leverage template variables to include details, and attach snapshots when sending the alerts by email or Slack. Create downtimes to mute alerts during application maintenance.

Manage monitors

Manage Monitors: Edit, clone, delete, mute, and resolve monitors all in the same place. Focus on high priority alerts by using advanced faceted search. Explore monitor details and alerts over time in the Monitor Status page.
