The Datadog integration sends system metrics from Aviatrix Gateways and the Controller to your Datadog instance.

Once enabled, all existing and new Gateways will send system metrics via an installed Datadog agent to the configured Datadog instance.


In order to complete the steps in this guide, you’ll need:

  • A Datadog account and API Key


Sign up for a Datadog account here. Once you have an account, you can create a new API Key from the Integrations~APIs menu.

Enable/Disable Integration

Login to the Aviatrix Controller. Go to the Settings in the navigation bar and click on Logging. At the bottom of the page, find Datadog Agent:


Change the status to Enabled and enter your Datadog API Key and finally click Enable.


What Data Is Collected

Once enabled, the Controller will install and configure the Datadog agent on each of your Gateways and on the Controller automatically.
