    Support Plans


    From basic plans to bespoke offerings, Datadog offers the right level of support for any organization.

    LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR SUPPORT PLANS

    Common Questions


    How do you define a host?
    A host is any physical or virtual OS instance that you monitor with Datadog. It could be a server, VM, node (in the case of Kubernetes) or App Service Plan instance (in the case of Azure App Services).
    How do I monitor containers?
    The Datadog Agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it can collect metrics from its neighboring containers and from the host itself. Depending on your plan, you can monitor 10 or 20 containers free for each host license.Additional containers will be billed at $0.002 per container per hour. In addition, you can purchase prepaid containers at $1 per container per month.
    What is a custom metric?
    Datadog was designed to allow you to monitor your own custom applications and business metrics—not just your infrastructure. You can send any and all of your organization’s important metrics to Datadog for graphing, alerting, correlation, anomaly detection and more. Example uses: monitoring ad revenue, the rate at which shopping carts are abandoned, or the health of an in-game economy. Many customers find these metrics invaluable, especially when combined with infrastructure metrics.
    What is a custom event?
    Datadog allows you to send custom events coming from your own custom applications such as custom-built deployment tools or scheduled maintenance jobs. This way, you can correlate any of these events with performance metrics, create monitors for alerting and enrich events at intake with processing pipelines to be queried alongside other standard events.
    How many events are included per host?
    Datadog offers 500 custom events for every host monitored with infrastructure monitoring for pro plan, or 1000 for enterprise plan. Custom events are averaged across your entire account, not just on a per-host basis. Beyond this limit, Datadog charges $2 for 100 000 custom events (billed annually or $3 on-demand), although it is rare for our customers to exceed the included volume.
    How can I send custom metrics and events?

    You can send Datadog custom metrics and events in three ways

    • The Datadog Agent ships with DogStatsD so you can submit custom metrics via the Agent's non-blocking API functions for many programming languages.
    • The Datadog Agent allows for the creation of custom integrations via plugins to the Agent. This plugin system allows the Agent to collect custom metrics on your behalf. Integrations which are contributed back to the Datadog Agent convert to standard metrics.
    • Datadog also has a full-featured API that you can send your metrics to—either directly over HTTP or with a language-specific library.
    How can I be sure my data is secure?
    Security is our top priority. This includes, universal HTTPS, strong TLS configuration, and HTTP Strict Transport Security. Our Agent is open-source, which means it can be reviewed to ensure it meets your security requirements.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual, monthly and hourly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our
    Do you have special offerings for partners?
    We’re always looking to partner with technology and service providers and resellers. See our Partners page for more.
    How do you define an IoT device?
    An IoT device is a nonstandard compute device deployed outside of an on-premise or cloud data center which transmits data over a network. Examples of IoT devices include the Raspberry Pi and Nvidia Jetson. You can monitor IoT devices in Datadog with the Datadog IoT Agent.

    Common Questions


    How do you define retention?

    The retention period is the number of days your logs are searchable and analyzable. After this period, logs disappear from your index(es).

    Logs removed from your index(es) do not have to be gone forever! Check out our for long-term storage options.

    What happens if I send an unexpectedly high volume of logs?

    By committing to a monthly volume of logs, you aren’t rate-limited based on a single day's volume. Send as much as you need on any given day without losing visibility. Assuming your average is lower on other days, your bill is unaffected.

    In those cases where you have a big month, not to worry! You maintain complete visibility and pay for additional services (+50% of the annual price) only on the volume that exceeds your commitment.

    How is Rehydration billed?
    When you
    I know my consumption in GB/day: how do I convert it into millions of log events?

    Log events come in all shapes and sizes, which is precisely why we offer event-based pricing! We want to encourage rich logs to provide the most value.

    The best way to get the number of log events during your Datadog trial is to run a count query over the last 24 hours and multiply by 30 days to estimate for the month. This can, of course, also be done in your current log management solution, if you have one.

    How do I monitor containers?
    The Datadog Agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it can collect metrics and logs from its neighboring containers and from the host itself.
    How are log-based metrics billed?
    Log-based metrics can either be counted towards your Custom Metrics allocation as outlined in your infrastructure plan or charged on-demand starting at $5/100 metrics.
    How can I be sure my data is secure?
    Security is our top priority. This includes, TCP/SSL Strict Transport Security, agent-level scrubbing and SOC 2 compliance. Our Agent is open-source, which means it can be reviewed to ensure it meets your security requirements.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual and monthly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our .
    How can I manage my highly dynamic log volume in a cost-effective way without losing visibility?
    We’ve designed our Log Management offer knowing from day 1 that managing large and fluctuating log volumes is a common problem. We have various innovative solutions for this, which you can learn more about from our dedicated article Can I subscribe to Log Management without using Datadog Infrastructure or APM?
    Having all your infrastructure, APM, and log data under one roof is something we definitely encourage, but you can also subscribe only to Datadog’s Log Management. Learn how to configure only log collection What retentions are available for on-demand customers?
    For on-demand customers, the default retention is 15 days. If you have already created a Datadog account and would like to use a different retention, you can request a different retention at [email protected]
    Am I billed for ingestion even if I index all of my logs?
    The $0.10 per GB for ingesting and processing logs is waived if you index 100% of the logs you send to Datadog. The $0.10 per GB rate always applies to any compressed log data scanned during rehydration.

    Common Questions

    What kind of billing plan do I need to run APM?
    APM standalone or APM & Continuous Profiler can be purchased in addition to either Pro or Enterprise Infrastructure Monitoring plans.
    What counts as a billable APM host?
    A billable APM host is a host on which APM is enabled and that is actively submitting spans to the Datadog SaaS application. This means that hosts running third party services (e.g. databases, caches, queues and load-balancers) do not count towards APM billing even if APM was enabled on them. Their price is included with the host price of their calling applications that do submit spans to the Datadog platform.
    I am an existing APM customer. Can I switch to the APM & Continuous Profiler plan?
    Yes. Existing APM customers have the option of changing their plan to APM & Continuous Profiler at $40 per host per month. Contact your Sales or Customer Success rep for help.
    Can I purchase the APM & Continuous Profiler plan for a portion of my hosts and individual standalone products for the rest of my hosts?
    No. Customers can commit to only one of the plans across all their APM hosts, not a combination thereof.
    What languages does APM support?
    Java, Python, Ruby, Go, Node, .NET and PHP. You can find the full list of supported languages and libraries in our documentation.
    Can I add custom instrumentation on top of Datadog’s out-of-the-box instrumentation?
    Yes. We provide auto-instrumentation for popular libraries and frameworks, but you can easily add custom instrumentation if desired.
    Can I run APM with containers?
    Yes, you can run APM in a containerized environment. The number of containers running on each host (node) does not impact the APM host-based price. AWS Fargate is also supported.
    Does APM support Serverless computing?
    Yes, we support AWS Fargate tasks ($2 per task) and AWS Lambda (see pricing info here).
    What is the difference between ingestion and retention?
    Ingestion means sending your traces to Datadog and having all of them available for Live Search and Analytics for 15 minutes. Retention means storing your most important traces (e.g. error, high latency, or business-critical ones) and making them available for search and analysis during a retention period of your choice (15 days by default).
    Can I ingest additional spans?

    Yes. While we include 150GB per APM host by default for Ingested Spans, you can always ingest additional traces and spans for 15-minute live search and analytics at $0.10/GB.

    Note: The included 150GB per host is summed over all the APM hosts. For example, if in a given month you have 2 APM hosts and one ingests 250GBs and the other 50GBs (300GB in total), you will not be billed for ingestion that month.

    Can I retain (index) additional spans and modify the retention period?

    Yes. While we include 1 million Indexed Spans per APM host with 15-day retention by default, you can always retain additional spans.

    For additional Indexed Spans, we offer the following retention periods:

    • 7-day retention at $1.27 per million spans per month (billed annually or $1.91 on-demand)
    • 15-day retention at $1.70 per million spans per month (billed annually or $2.55 on-demand)
    • 30-day retention at $2.50 per million spans per month (billed annually or or $3.75 on-demand)

    If you need longer retention, please reach out to your Customer Success or Sales rep to customize your plan.

    Note 1: The included 1 million Indexed Spans per host is summed across all your APM hosts. For example, if in a given month you have 2 APM hosts and you index 1.5 million spans from one and 0.5 million from the other (2 million in total), you will not be billed for indexing that month.

    Note 2: Indexed Spans that are auto-retained by Datadog do not count towards the 1 million Indexed Spans that are included per host.

    How does on-demand billing of ingested and indexed spans differ from my committed plan?
    For on-demand use of APM, which is counted on an hourly basis, both ingested and indexed span allotment for the associated APM Hosts are only counted toward use in that same hour and are not aggregated across all use throughout the month, as they are under the committed plan. This means that ingested and indexed span use that goes over the associated APM Host allotment in the same hour will increase billing regardless of span use during other times.
    What are the hourly span allotments and on-demand pricing?
    For every host hour customers get an allotment of 205 MB for ingested spans and 1,370 indexed spans. These numbers are a result of dividing the allotments under committed plans by the number of hours in a month. For every additional 205 MB in a given host hour, customers will be charged $0.0205, and for every additional 1,370 indexed spans in a given host hour, customers will be charged $0.0023.
    Do I have to ingest and/or retain 100% of my traces?
    With an intuitive user interface, you can decide what to send to Datadog as well as which traces to retain and for how long. This way, customers get full control over their tracing data and their network-bandwidth-related costs.
    How are span-based metrics billed?
    Span-based metrics are counted towards your Custom Metrics allocation as outlined in your infrastructure plan.
    Can I run APM on web apps with Azure App Services (PaaS)?
    Yes, the Datadog extension for Azure App Services provides additional monitoring capabilities for Azure Web Apps, including full support for distributed tracing using automatic instrumentation, manual APM instrumentation to customize spans, Trace_ID injection into application logs, and submitting custom metrics using DogStatsD. Learn more with our documentation.
    What is considered as a host for Azure App Services?
    All Azure App Service Plan instances will count as Infrastructure hosts. In addition, if they are running the Datadog extension and submitting APM traces from a Web App, all instances in the underlying ASP will be counted as APM hosts.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual, monthly and hourly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.
    What is Continuous Profiler?
    Continuous Profiler is a tool to observe and analyze code-level performance in your production environment at all times with minimal overhead. It allows developers to identify and optimize the most resource-consuming methods in their code. We provide comprehensive documentation and encourage you to take a read.
    How is Continuous Profiler billed?

    Continuous Profiler is billed per host, per month, regardless of whether it is combined with APM. The price includes 4 containers running profiled applications per host. Additional containers will cost only $2 each. Annual, month-to-month, and on-demand billing plans are available. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.

    Note: The included 4 containers per host is summed across all your profiled hosts. For example, if in a given month you have 2 profiled hosts, and one of them has 6 profiled containers and the other has 2 profiled containers (8 in total), then you will not be billed for profiled containers that month.

    I am an existing Continuous Profiler customer. Can I switch to the APM & Continuous Profiler plan?
    Yes. Existing Continuous Profiler customers have the option of changing their plan to APM & Continuous Profiler at $40 per host per month. Contact your Sales or Customer Success rep for help.
    I am an existing Continuous Profiler customer and I am not interested in the APM & Continuous Profiler plan. Will my cost per profiled host change?'
    Existing Continuous Profiler Customers will be honored as per their current contracted price until renewal.
    Can I purchase Continuous Profiler standalone?
    Yes, Continuous Profiler can be purchased standalone at $19 per profiled host per month with an annual commitment. Month-to-month and on-demand plans are also available at $23 per profiled host per month or $0.038 per hour. Contact us or reach out to your Sales or Customer Success rep for more details.
    Can I purchase the APM & Continuous Profiler bundle for a portion of my hosts and individual standalone products for the rest of my hosts?
    No. Customers can commit to only one of the plans across all their APM hosts, not a combination thereof.
    How do you define a profiled host?
    A profiled host is a physical or virtual operating system instance which is running a profiled application. To be profiled, the host would need to have the agent installed and profiling enabled. When combined with APM, every APM host is also a profiler host, and vice versa. The same logic applies to profiled containers. For more information visit our Billing FAQ.
    Which languages does Continuous Profiler support?
    Currently supported languages are Java, Go, Python, and Ruby. Node is in beta and support for PHP, .NET, and C++ is coming soon.
    How does Datadog Continuous Profiler work?
    Our profilers constantly collect representative samples of all stack traces, aggregate them over a 60-second time period and forwards them through the Datadog agent. This is done continuously in one-minute intervals which means you will never lose code-level visibility in your services. To profile your services, simply import our profiling library or enable an environment variable flag when you run the APM tracer.
    How do you ensure minimal performance impact in production?
    We use the latest, most cutting-edge technologies, such as the JDK Flight Recorder, to ensure that performance impact is minimal even with full production workloads. Additionally, our profilers do not interrupt or interfere with any of your service requests hence we introduce no additional request latency.
    How is profiling different from tracing?
    Tracing measures latency of requests across services in distributed systems, whereas profiling provides deeper insights on all that happened on the code level of the services.
    What are the benefits of Datadog Continuous Profiler?
    Continuous Profiler is tightly integrated with the rest of the Datadog platform and it extends our seamless correlations between metrics, traces, and logs to the code level. This is extremely useful for code performance optimization, cost savings on cloud provider bills, and reducing request latency for improved user experience.
    What types of profiles are available?
    CPU, Memory Allocation, Lock, Wall Time, Disk IO, and Socket IO profiles. For more information visit our documentation page.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual, monthly and hourly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.

    Common Questions


    How do you define a database host?
    A database host is any physical or virtual instance hosting your database on a server that you monitor with Datadog.
    What databases are supported?
    Database Monitoring (DBM) is vendor-agnostic. We support Postgres (9.6+), MySQL (5.6+) and SQL Server (2012, 2014, 2016, 2017, 2019) databases at this time, whether they be on-premise, self-managed, or cloud-hosted. In the future, we plan to support additional databases.
    Can I purchase Database Monitoring (DBM) standalone?
    No, you need to be an existing Infrastructure Monitoring customer to purchase Database Monitoring.
    I am an existing Infrastructure Monitoring customer. Can I purchase DBM for a portion of my database hosts?
    Yes, you can purchase Database Monitoring (DBM) for one, some, or all of your database hosts!
    What are (query) explain plans and how are they useful?
    A query explain plan or query execution plan describes the steps used to access data and enables you to locate hotspots. We automatically capture explain plans for all queries to make sure that you have sample available during critical moments.
    How long is DBM data retained?
    – Query metrics are retained for 3 months
    – Explain plans and query samples are retained for 15 days
    How does DBM work?
    DBM uses the Datadog Agent to capture data from your databases. Please see our
    Does DBM require the use of an additional agent?
    No, as long as you are an Infrastructure Monitoring customer and already have the standard Datadog Agent set up, you are able to use Database Monitoring. Check out our
    What are normalized queries?
    Identical queries with different parameters are grouped together by obfuscating the parameters. These query groups are called normalized queries and are sometimes referred to as query digests. Datadog supports 200 normalized queries per database host. Obfuscating parameters at the agent level also ensures that no sensitive data is forwarded.
    Can I still use DBM if I have additional normalized queries past the included amount?
    200 normalized queries are included per host. This allotment is aggregated across all hosts, meaning that if you have 2 hosts, you have a total limit of 200 + 200 = 400 queries regardless of the exact breakdown by host, i.e. 200 normalized queries on average. At your request, we can accommodate additional normalized queries surpassing this limit for an extra charge.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual and monthly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our .

    Common Questions


    What’s the difference between API Tests and Browser Tests?
    API Tests monitor single endpoints or URLs, whereas Browser Tests monitor web business transactions or web user journeys that may involve several actions and pages. Multistep API tests are also available to chain several HTTP API tests together.
    Are you able to alert on Synthetic monitors?
    Yes, alerts are built in and triggered automatically when your tests fail. Datadog also integrates with your favorite collaboration/communication tools such as Slack, Pagerduty, ServiceNow, and more.
    Can I view endpoint requests end-to-end?
    Yes, with the out-of-the-box APM integration, you are able to tie back any synthetic tests to their corresponding back-end, code-level insights for minimal mean time to resolution.
    Is there any extra charge for using private locations?
    No. There are no additional costs to set up a private location. All test runs to a private location are billed just as they are to a managed location.
    What counts as an API test run?

    HTTP, SSL, DNS, TCP, and ICMP all fall under API test billing. Each hit being made on your endpoint counts as a single test run. If a test is set to run from 3 locations every minute, the test will count as 180 test runs in an hour.

    For multistep API tests, each request counts as an individual API test.

    What counts as a browser test run?
    Each simulation of a full transaction (25 steps) counts as a single test run. A single test containing 50 steps counts as 2 test runs on each execution. So, running a 51 step test (counting as 3 test runs) every 15 minutes from 5 different locations and 2 different devices means the test will count as 120 test runs in an hour.
    How do browser test subtests participate in Synthetics billing?
    Subtests are treated just as any other step in the browser test. Therefore, we bill a subtest as part of the overall test execution. So if a user sets up a browser test with 3 subtests, that each have 5 steps nested, that would amount to a total of 15 steps.

    Service and Support



    Common Questions


    How is a user defined?
    Incident Management is billed by counting Monthly Active Users (MAUs). An “active user” is only counted if they contribute comments or signals (graphs, links, etc.) to an incident. Anyone who only opens/closes an incident or simply views the incident are not counted. Additionally, these are not named seats, so you do not need to determine which specific users have access.
    What tools does Datadog’s Incident Management integrate with?
    Datadog integrates with the Datadog Slack App for incident communication channels to facilitate collaboration and timeline activity. Other communication tools can be linked directly from an incident. Check out our Docs for more information.
    How do I declare an incident? Can I include external details?
    Incident Management is deeply integrated across the Datadog platform to ensure you can open incidents when you need to from wherever you are. Incidents can be opened from alerts, graphs, logs, APM, Security signals and more. External sources, like customer support tickets, can also be used as signals in an incident by adding them as links. Doing so adds them to the incident timeline and can be used to explain the scope of impact.
    Does Datadog have an on-call scheduler?
    Datadog integrates with partners like PagerDuty to ensure your on-call team members can be added to incidents and appropriately notified.
    Can I use Datadog Incident Management without using other Datadog products?
    Datadog Incident Management can be used as a standalone incident management solution for your team, or as a central hub in-app to consolidate the tools and processes you already use.

    Common Questions


    How do you define a committer?
    A committer means an active Git committer; they are identified through their Git author email address. A committer is counted towards billing if they commit at least 3 times in a given month.
    How do you define a committer in a pipeline not linked in a Git repository?
    In the event that a pipeline is not associated to a git repository, or git metadata is unavailable, the username of the person triggering the pipeline execution will be used as the billable committer.
    Can I purchase more than one plan for my team?
    Yes, customers can purchase a combination of plans. For example, for a team of 5, you can have 2 committers billed for Pipeline Visibility and 3 (other) committers billed for Testing Visibility.
    How do you define a span?
    For Pipeline Visibility, every pipeline, pipeline stage and pipeline job counts as a span. For Testing Visibility, every individual test run counts as a span.
    What is the span limit?
    400,000 spans are included per Pipeline Visibility committer per month (summed across all Pipeline Visibility committers). 1,000,000 spans are included per Testing Visibility committer per month (summed across all Testing Visibility committers).

    From basic plans to bespoke offerings, Datadog offers the right level of support for any organization.

    LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR SUPPORT PLANS

    Common Questions


    How do you define an active function?
    Datadog bills based on the average number of functions per hour across the month for your accounts. Every hour, Datadog records the number of functions that were executed one or more times and monitored by your Datadog account. At the end of the month, Datadog charges by calculating the average of the hourly number of functions recorded.
    How do you define a traced invocation?
    Datadog bills based on the sum of AWS Lambda invocations connected to an ingested APM trace in a given month. You will also be billed for the total number of indexed spans submitted to the Datadog APM service exceeding the bundled quantity at the end of the month.
    Can I control how many invocations are traced?
    Yes, Datadog allows you to control the percentage of Lambda function invocations that generate APM data.
    Can Serverless APM be purchased without Serverless Workload Monitoring?
    No, Serverless APM is an optional add-on for serverless functions sending metrics to Datadog via Serverless Workload Monitoring.
    What is included with Serverless APM?

    Span Ingestion: 50GB Ingested Spans per 1M traced invocations; then $0.10/GB.

    Span Retention: 300 thousand Indexed Spans per 1M traced invocations; then $1.70 per 1 million Indexed Spans with 15-day retention (billed annually or $2.55 on-demand).

    See APM common questions for additional retention periods.

    What AWS Lambda runtimes do you support?
    Python, Node.js, Go, Ruby, Java, and .NET
    How can I send my serverless logs to Datadog?
    AWS service logs are collected with the Datadog Forwarder Lambda function.
    Can I monitor other AWS services used alongside my Lambda functions?
    Yes, Datadog has an easy to set up AWS integration which immediately pulls in metrics and more from 85+ AWS services, including Amazon API Gateway, Amazon DynamoDB, AWS AppSync, Amazon SQS, Amazon Kinesis, and AWS Step Functions.

    Common Questions


    How do you define a host?
    A host is any physical or virtual machine that has the Datadog agent installed with Network Performance Monitoring enabled.
    How do you define a device?
    A device is a physical or virtual appliance with a unique IP address that is polled using SNMP.
    How do you define a flow?
    A flow is a record of traffic sent and received between a source (IP:Port) and destination (IP:Port) over a five minute time period. In some cases, similar destinations are grouped into a single flow to reduce the total flow count.
    How many flows are included per host?
    Datadog offers 6 million flows for every host monitored with network monitoring. Flows are averaged across your entire account, not just on a per-host basis. Beyond this limit, Datadog charges $1.27 / million flows, although it is rare for our customers to exceed the included volume.
    Does Network Performance Monitoring work with containers?
    Yes, Datadog Network Performance Monitoring is designed to work in containerized and highly dynamic environments. User-defined tags allow you to slice and dice network flows by almost anything, including containers, clusters, pods, and deployments.
    Do I need to purchase other Datadog products to use NPM or NDM?
    Having all your infrastructure, traces, logs, and network information under one roof is something we encourage for comprehensive visibility, however, it is not required. Network Performance Monitoring requires the purchase of an Infrastructure Pro or Enterprise plan. Network Device Monitoring only requires the purchase of one or more infrastructure hosts which are used to poll devices.

    Common Questions


    Which logs are analyzed by detection rules?
    All ingested logs are analyzed by detection rules. In particular, detection rules analyze logs even if the customer decides not to index them.
    What detection rules are available out of the box?
    Datadog continuously releases new detection rules, which are automatically enabled for existing customers. To explore default threat detection rules, please visit our .
    How are detection rules categorized?
    Rules that detect potential attacker techniques are mapped to the MITRE ATT&CK® framework. Rules that detect potential misconfigurations are aligned to the relevant compliance frameworks and controls.
    Can users write their own custom threat detection rules?
    Yes, Cloud SIEM includes a rule editor that lets users edit default detection rules or write their own. The editor does not require users to learn a proprietary query language.
    Is there an additional cost for writing custom threat detection rules?
    No, Cloud SIEM covers the analysis of ingested logs both by default detection rules, as well as by any user-defined detection rules.
    Is there an additional cost for retaining security signals generated by detection rules?
    No, Cloud SIEM covers the retention of security signals for 15 months.

    Service and Support



    Common Questions


    How do you define a host and how do I define which hosts run CSPM?
    A host is any physical or virtual OS instance that you monitor with Datadog. It could be a server, VM, node (in the case of Kubernetes) or App Service Plan instance (in the case of Azure App Services). When you enable a cloud account for CSPM, we meter and bill for hosts running in these cloud accounts. Additionally, if you enable the Datadog agent to scan your Docker and Kubernetes environments, we meter and bill for any additional hosts that are not already accounted for.
    How do I monitor containers and kubernetes environments for security posture?
    The Datadog Agent runs configuration scans against Docker and Kubernetes best practices and industry benchmarks. The agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it can collect configuration metadata from its neighboring containers and from the host itself. Depending on your plan, you can monitor 4 containers free for each host license.

    Common Questions


    How does Observability Pipelines work?
    Observability Pipelines gives the freedom to collect, transform, and route logs, metrics, and traces in your own environment in order to control costs, reduce lock-in, enhance security, and standardize data. You can learn more about how it works in our Where does Observability Pipelines run?
    Observability Pipelines is accessible in the Datadog UI, but can be installed anywhere in your infrastructure with a simple configuration and Datadog API key. This allows you to make decisions and control costs before data leaves your environment. To learn more about the setup process, check out our documentation What happens if I send an unexpectedly high volume of data?
    By committing to a monthly volume of data, you are not rate-limited based on a single day’s volume. Send as much data as you need on any given day without losing visibility. Assuming your average is lower on other days, your bill is unaffected. In those cases where you have a big month, not to worry! You maintain complete visibility and may be subject to overages only on the volumes that exceed your commitment.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual and monthly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our Billing FAQ.

    Common Questions


    How do you define a host and how do I define which hosts run CWS?
    A host is any physical or virtual OS instance that you monitor with Datadog. It could be a server, VM, node (in the case of Kubernetes), or App Service Plan instance (in the case of Azure App Services). Hosts for CWS are instances with the Datadog Agent installed, and CWS activated.
    How do I monitor containers and kubernetes workloads?
    In containerized environments, the Datadog agent runs in a container alongside any number of other containers on a host. From there it monitors system activity for all running containers and for the host itself. Depending on your plan, you can monitor 4 containers free for each host license. Additional containers will be billed at $0.002 per container per hour. In addition, you can purchase prepaid containers at $1 per container per month.
    Is AWS Fargate Supported?
    At this time, Fargate is not supported by CWS. CWS requires access to the Linux kernel to load eBPF programs, which is not currently supported in Fargate environments.
    Are there other billing options?
    Annual, monthly and hourly plans are available. We can customize billing plans to meet your needs. For a detailed explanation of billing, please see our .
