Events, application traces and infrastructure metrics from Tanzu Application Service (TAS) applications are all easily monitored within Datadog’s platform to help teams quickly understand and communicate about the performance of their stack. By connecting teams to every level of their TAS architecture, Datadog enables more effective development and management of TAS architectures.

Accelerate Your Development Pipeline

Catch problems earlier in the development process by seeing the impact of every code change on any aspect of the infrastructure within a single platform.

Ensure Uptime with Rapid Troubleshooting

Uncover performance issues with machine-learning-based alerting, and overlay events on top of infrastructure and application metrics to understand the context behind them.

Communicate Across DevOps and Business Stakeholders

Improve communication across teams with accessible, publicly shareable dashboards, in-app annotations, and integrations with popular chat and ticketing software like Slack and PagerDuty.

Datadog in 2 Minutes
Datadog Overview

Datadog is a monitoring service for hybrid cloud applications, assisting organizations in improving agility, increasing efficiency, and providing end-to-end visibility across the application and organization. These capabilities are provided on a SaaS-based data analytics platform that enables Dev, Ops and other teams to accelerate go-to-market efforts, ensure application uptime, and successfully complete digital transformation initiatives. Since launching in 2010, Datadog has been adopted by more than 6000 enterprises including companies like Asana, eBay, PagerDuty, Stripe, Samsung, Target, The Washington Post, and Zendesk.

More about Datadog

"Datadog provides transparency into the PaaS engine room driving the applications. We enable VMware Tanzu operators to see in real time when application or platform performance is degrading so they can take action before those problems affect customers."

Ilan Rabinovitch, VP of Product, Datadog

How It Works

There are multiple points of integration between Datadog and VMware Tanzu:

  • Datadog Agent BOSH release
    The Datadog Agent can be installed on nodes to collect system-level information, and can be deployed with the Datadog Agent BOSH release. Once uploaded to the BOSH Director, the Director can then install the agent on every node as an addon. Once the agent is installed on a node, it will begin reporting system-level metrics (CPU, memory, disk, network, etc.) for that node to Datadog.
  • Datadog Firehose Nozzle
    The Datadog Firehose Nozzle is used to capture metrics, event data, and logs from the Tanzu Firehose. Datadog provides a BOSH release of the Datadog Firehose Nozzle. After uploading the release to a BOSH Director, the Nozzle can be added to an existing Cloud Foundry deployment that has a working Loggregator Firehose.
  • Datadog decorator buildpack for StatsD and APM
    The Datadog decorator buildback enables custom metrics and end-to-end tracing for applications running on Tanzu. The decorator buildpack will install a limited version of the Datadog agent in the containers used to run applications, including just DogStatsD (a StatsD handler) and the APM functionality of the standard Datadog agent. From here, the agent will begin collecting traces and custom metrics from applications which have been instrumented appropriately, and the agent will forward that data to Datadog.
