Datadog integration

DataStream provides out-of-the-box integration with Datadog to measure the health of your application and performance in real-time.

Datadog is a monitoring service for cloud-scale applications, providing monitoring of servers, databases, tools, and services through a SaaS-based data analytics platform. See Integrate Akamai with Datadog to monitor CDN performance.

Note: You can integrate only an aggregated metrics stream that stores log data in a DataStream buffer with Datadog. See Key concepts and terms.

How to

  1. Get started with DataStream.
    Configure an aggregated metrics stream that allows only for pulling data. See Add a data stream.
  2. Set up an API client for the DataStream Pull API.
    To integrate with Datadog, you need an API client with at least read-only access to the DataStream Pull API. You can create an API client in Control Center. See Get started with APIs.
  3. Enable DataStream integration in Datadog.
    In your Datadog account, open the Akamai integration tile from the list of available integrations. Paste in the previously created credentials: host, client secret, access token, and client token. Next, add the Stream ID of your aggregated metrics stream. Select your host from the dropdown and click Update Configuration to complete the integration.

  4. Visualize your data in Datadog.
    Once you’ve enabled the Akamai integration in Datadog, your metrics start flowing into your Akamai dashboard. This template dashboard includes several high-level metrics on caching, request rate, and response times. You can also easily clone this dashboard to customize it and suit your needs.
