We are a solution provider and Datadog is one of the products that I was working on with one of my clients. They are currently evaluating it for use in cloud monitoring. Specifically, Datadog is used for monitoring cloud applications in terms of performance. The logs come into this solution from AWS and it provides dashboards for various environments.

We are using the infrastructure and app monitoring side, such as process monitoring. We are using it in a very traditional way. We are not using the APM capabilities. When it comes to something like containers, we will generally use it on the host but not inside the container itself. We are using it with our customers and in-house day-to-day.

The primary use case is application monitoring. We also use it set custom metrics and watch our AWS metrics, as well as data. At my current job, I have only use it a couple months. However, I used it for a few years at a previous company.

We use it for notifications, alerting, and capturing most of the information from Amazon, such as EC2 instances.

If our app is up and running, we use it to monitor how many credits the app is using up on each node. We also monitor services by how long each call is taking with the help of EC2s off of application.

We use it to monitor our infrastructure, particularly our different EC2 instances, and our containers. We also use it to capture our logs.

We mainly use it to send metrics about CV and memory usage, in addition to the number of files descriptors on a socket.

We use it to store editorial content. We started out on the on-premise version, then moved to the AWS version.
