Services List

Services List


After you have instrumented your application, your reporting services appear on the APM services page. The services list is a bird’s eye view of all services reporting from your infrastructure. Select an individual service to view detailed performance insights. Read the dedicated service documentation to learn more.

Filtering the service list

Filter the services list depending on:

Services types

Every service monitored by your application is associated with a “type”. This type is automatically determined by Datadog based on the span.type attribute attached to your spans. The “type” specified the name of the application/framework the Datadog Agent is integrating with.

For example, if you are using the official Flask Integration, the “Type” is set to “Web”. If you are monitoring a custom application, the “Type” appears as “Custom”.

The type of the service can be one of:

  • Cache
  • Custom
  • DB
  • Web

We also have some aliases for Integrations such as Postgres, MySQL, and Cassandra which are map to Type: “DB” and Integrations Redis and Memcache which are map to Type: “Cache”.
