Datadog Polling

The Datadog Polling integration allows you to retrieve events from one or more Datadog servers and send them to Moogsoft Enterprise as events.

Refer to the Datadog Polling LAM Reference and LAM and Integration Reference to see the integration's default properties.

When you use the integrations UI, you can only configure the visible properties. If you want to implement a more complex Datadog Polling LAM with custom settings, see Configure the Datadog Polling LAM.

See the Datadog documentation for details on Datadog components.

Before you begin

The Datadog Polling integration has been validated with Datadog v2018. Before you set up your integration, ensure you have met the following requirements for each Datadog instance:

  • The port for your Datadog server is open and accessible from Moogsoft Enterprise.

  • Your Datadog system can accept HTTPS requests.

  • You know your Datadog server URL.

  • You know your Datadog API key and Application Key.

Additionally, you can provide optional configuration details. See the Datadog Polling LAM Reference and LAM and Integration Reference for a description of all properties.

Configure the Datadog Polling integration

To configure the Datadog Polling integration:

  1. Navigate to the Integrations tab.

  2. Click Datadog Polling in the Monitoring section.

  3. Provide a unique integration name. You can use the default name or customize the name according to your needs.

  4. Provide connection details for your Datadog system.

Configure Datadog Polling

You do not need to perform any integration-specific steps on your Datadog system. After you configure the integration, it polls your Datadog servers at regular intervals to collect data (every 60 seconds by default).
