Datadog is a monitoring service for hybrid cloud applications, assisting organizations in improving agility, increasing efficiency, and providing end-to-end visibility across the application and organization. These capabilities are provided on a SaaS-based data analytics platform that enables Dev, Ops and other teams to accelerate go-to-market efforts, ensure application uptime, and successfully complete digital transformation initiatives.

The Datadog integration with AWS CloudTrail brings CloudTrail events into Datadog and helps raise visibility of important changes happening in your AWS infrastructure. Reporting on CloudTrail events in Datadog helps you identify or eliminate AWS changes as the source of performance or security problems. Specifically, this integration allows Development and Operations teams to:

  • Track changes for any AWS resources from creation through deletion
  • Troubleshoot issues by automatically correlating changes made to resources with performance metrics
  • Perform security analysis by tracking failures due to inadequate permissions and all actions by specific users over a given time period
