Services List

Services List

Overview

After you instrument your application, your reporting services appear on the APM services page. The services list is a high-level 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 by:

Facets

You can filter and search the services list using the facets on the left side of the list. Facets are tags that Datadog automatically attaches to your services. Filtering and searching by facets helps you scope down the view to show the most relevant services.

Types of facets:

  • Service type
  • Last deploy: Time of the last deployment for a service
  • Watchdog: Whether the service has Watchdog insights
  • Monitor status: Current active status of monitors
  • Infra type: Type of infrastructure

Services types

Every service monitored by your application is associated with a type. Datadog automatically determines this type based on the span.type attribute attached to your spans. The type specifies the name of the application or framework that the Datadog Agent is integrating with.

For example, if you use 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
  • Serverless function
  • Web

Some integrations alias to types. For example, Postgres, MySQL, and Cassandra map to the type “DB”. Redis and Memcache integrations map to the type “Cache”.
