Configure Monitoring with Datadog

Note

The Datadog integration is a preview feature.

Using the Datadog integration, you can monitor the health and performance of your SingleStore Cloud workspaces. To integrate Datadog with SingleStore Cloud, you must install the SingleStore integration in Datadog, and then configure the Datadog integration in the Cloud Portal.

Prerequisites

  • Access to Datadog.

  • An active SingleStore Cloud workspace.

Install and Configure the Datadog Integration

You can start the configuration process either from the Cloud Portal or the Datadog dashboard. SingleStore recommends the following approach:

  1. Install the SingleStore Integration in Datadog.

  2. Configure the Datadog Integration in the Cloud Portal.

Install the SingleStore Integration in Datadog

To install the SingleStore integration in Datadog,

  1. On the Datadog dashboard, on the left navigation pane, select Integrations.

  2. On the Integrations tab, search SingleStore, and then select SingleStore from the search results.

  3. On the SingleStore dialog, select Install Integration. Once this integration is installed, proceed to the next step.

  4. On the Configure tab, select Connect Accounts. This action takes you to the Cloud Portal.

You only need to perform these steps once to connect your first workspace group with Datadog. Once the integration is installed and the accounts are connected, follow the steps specified under Configure the Datadog Integration in the Cloud Portal to connect consecutive workspace groups.

Configure the Datadog Integration in the Cloud Portal

To connect your SingleStore Cloud workspace group with Datadog:

  1. Sign in to the Cloud Portal. Upon signing in, you are taken to the Integration page. You can also select Monitoring > Integration on the left navigation pane to access this page.

  2. From the list of available integrations, select + Integration for Datadog.

  3. On the Create Datadog Integration dialog, from the Workspace Group list, select your workspace group.

  4. Select Create. This action takes you to the Datadog sign-in page. After signing in to Datadog, proceed to the next step.

  5. On the Authorize access screen, select the Authorize button. Upon successful authorization, you are taken to the Integration page on the Cloud Portal.

You can now monitor your SingleStore Cloud databases using Datadog.

Uninstall the Datadog Integration

To uninstall/deactivate the Datadog integration,

  1. Uninstall the SingleStore integration on Datadog: On the Datadog dashboard, select Integrations > SingleStore > Configure > Uninstall Integration. Once this integration is uninstalled, all previous authorizations are revoked.

  2. Remove the Datadog integration on the Cloud Portal: On the Cloud Portal, go to Monitoring > Integration. Select Delete for each Datadog configuration you want to remove.

Additionally, remove all the API keys associated with this integration.

To stop monitoring a specific workspace group (and not uninstall the integration), select Delete (Cloud Portal > Monitoring > Integration) to remove the Datadog configuration for this workspace group.

Refer to Data Collected for a complete list of all the metrics that Datadog collects from the connected SingleStore Cloud workspace group.
