Troubleshooting Service Catalog

APM-instrumented services not appearing

If services that you know are instrumented for APM are not appearing in the Service Catalog list, it’s likely because they have not been emitting performance data in the past hour for the selected env (or any Primary Tag values of your choosing) or Secondary Primary Tag. To confirm, on the Performance tab, hover over the columns where you expect the performance metrics to appear and see information on which environments the services are active.

Hover message indicating that no performance data has been reported in the past hour

Additional telemetry is available to a service but it’s not listed

Service Catalog relies on the DD_SERVICE tag in all telemetry types (infrastructure metrics, logs, network performance monitoring) to gather information about a given service. If you don’t see a telemetry type that you expect in the Service Catalog, ensure that you have configured the DD_SERVICE tag according to the instructions in Unified Service Tagging.
