Terraform Datadog dashboards
Datadog dashboards play important role in the monitoring-as-a-code process because they give updated information about the status of applications. Using dashboards you can visualize performance data used by monitors and compare it with other vital metrics. You can create dashboards based on a grid layout with images or graphs for status monitoring or storytelling, timeboards, which can be implemented for troubleshooting or data comparison, and screenboards with free layouts, which may also include images or charts.
Cloud service provider integration
Datagod allows you to establish a tool that will configure AWS integration, so you can instantly gather vital metrics. Lambda function may be used to get AWS service logs and the Datagod forwarder can be handled through the provider. This will ensure a constant stream of AWS logs and main performance indicators to the Datadog.
In addition to the above examples, Terraform Datadog provider gives other tools that will streamline your monitoring process, like setting up synthetic tests to automate verification of app performance in new settings.
Furthermore, Terraform is especially valuable because it operates resources from different providers, for example, you can create a monitor through Datadog and then engage AWS Command Line interface using Terraform.
