Datadog Announces General Availability of Log Management

  • Full featured SaaS-based log management platform with machine data analytics
  • Integrates seamlessly with infrastructure metrics and application traces for reduced time to incident resolution
  • Enhances Datadog’s out-of-the-box monitoring integrations with log data

NEW YORK--()--Datadog, the essential monitoring platform for modern cloud environments, today announced the general availability of Datadog Log Management. With this new SaaS-based service, customers can now enrich, monitor, and analyze logs from all their systems for troubleshooting, auditing, visualization, and alerting.

“Most organizations have five or more tools monitoring their IT infrastructure. There is a growing interest in a single dashboard that unifies data from all monitoring tools.”

This new log management service also integrates seamlessly with the infrastructure monitoring and application performance monitoring (APM) services in Datadog. With these tight integrations, customers can now query and visualize all their logs, traces, and metrics in comprehensive dashboards, build alerts that trigger on data from any source, and pivot smoothly between views for rapid troubleshooting during critical outages.

Highlights

  • Quick installation via a hosted SaaS solution that takes minutes to configure
  • Automatic grouping and correlation of Logs, APM, and Infrastructure Monitoring data
  • In-context transitions between related Logs, APM, and Infrastructure Monitoring views for rapid troubleshooting of critical issues
  • Enhances Datadog’s artificial intelligence based Outlier Detection, Anomaly Detection, and Forecasts
  • Out-of-the-box collection and enrichment of log data from popular applications, cloud platforms, and infrastructure components
  • Customizable processing and analytics pipelines
  • Rich exploration and visualization capabilities
  • Powerful Query Language
  • Real Time Alerts
  • User defined indexing and archiving policies for cost optimization

"All Datadog customers can now correlate infrastructure metrics and application traces with relevant logs for quicker detection of issues,” said Renaud Boutet, Product Director at Datadog. “This level of seamless pivoting between different sources of data is completely new and will help our customers dramatically improve the time to problem resolution."

Datadog’s log management pricing starts at $1.27 per million log events ingested.

“We have various Amazon Web Services (AWS) solutions, containers, servers and applications to monitor. Infrastructure metrics and logs often work together to tell the full story of what’s happening within an application, so we find ourselves continuously jumping from Datadog to another third party log management solution to connect the dots – an integrated solution native to Datadog is a tremendous gain of productivity.” – Fabien Jallot, Head of DevOps at 24 Sèvres

“Some vendors are beginning to work on methods for displaying, correlating and retaining just the logs that are likely to be useful in use cases like troubleshooting. The idea is to cut down on potential costs related to collecting and retaining a large set of logs.” – Nancy Gohring, 451 Research

“Most organizations have five or more tools monitoring their IT infrastructure. There is a growing interest in a single dashboard that unifies data from all monitoring tools.” – Gartner, Market Guide for IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools, Will Cappelli, Pankaj Prasad, 6 June 2017
