Datadog Adds Synthetic Monitoring

Datadog Synthetics simulates user traffic to proactively detect
availability issues and correlates them with logs, traces, and
performance metrics for fast root cause diagnostics

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Datadog, the leading monitoring and analytics platform for modern cloud
environments, today announced Datadog Synthetics, a new capability that
monitors application and API availability by simulating user traffic.
Synthetics is built on Datadog’s unified platform for infrastructure and
application performance monitoring, allowing for logs, traces, and
infrastructure metrics related to issues detected by Synthetics to be
instantly available for troubleshooting.

When issues are detected by typical synthetic monitoring systems,
engineering teams must then utilize multiple disjointed tools to extract
the logs, application traces, and infrastructure metrics related to the
issue to get to the root cause. Not only are outages prolonged with
these tedious manual steps, but also, it becomes difficult, or, in some
cases impossible, to identify root causes due to potential data gaps or
mismatches that exist between multiple systems.

Datadog simplifies alerting and troubleshooting of issues detected via
Synthetics by providing engineering teams with all of the data that has
been collected by the Datadog platform related to a website problem.
Once Synthetics identifies an issue, related infrastructure metrics,
logs, and traces collected from the services, applications, and hosts or
containers running the website are automatically surfaced. This instant
delivery of performance data enables immediate root cause diagnostics,
significantly minimizing the time to resolution of an issue.

“The performance of a given web page or API can have a significant
impact on our customers’ businesses,” said Albert Wang, Director of
Product Management at Datadog. “With Synthetics, these customers can be
proactively alerted to poor performance, bugs, and outages and dig more
deeply into their causes with Datadog’s fully integrated infrastructure
monitoring, application tracing, and log management products.“

“Datadog’s monitoring products have helped our team troubleshoot more
quickly,” said Jose Diaz, Infrastructure Lead at SeatGeek. “Without
Datadog, we would need to be alerted to outages using one synthetics
tool, then switch over to another tool to actually troubleshoot. Now we
can see everything in one place without any slowdowns.“

A preview of Datadog Synthetics will be demonstrated at Datadog’s
booths, #402 and #208 in The Venetian and #207 in The Aria, at AWS
re:Invent in Las Vegas from Monday, November 26th to Thursday, November
29th. The product is expected to be available in a private beta in early
December and customers can join the beta waitlist here.
