Datadog announced Java support for Datadog Application Performance Monitoring and Distributed Tracing.

With this support, all Datadog customers can easily monitor the health of the code within their Java applications and take advantage of various out-of-the-box integrations with Java frameworks (Spring Boot and Dropwizard), application servers (Tomcat and Jetty), and calls to databases (JDBC, MongoDB, and Cassandra).

Datadog APM also supports OpenTracing, the vendor-neutral open standard for distributed tracing. This will bring application performance monitoring to more enterprise customers that often write their applications in the Java programming language.

"This is a crucial step in bringing full-stack visibility to our largest Java customers," said Julie Levine, Product Manager at Datadog. "By giving them the ability to monitor their applications alongside the underlying cloud infrastructure within AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud, we are providing a true platform of observability that saves our customers money and time."

Datadog APM supports performance optimization and outage diagnosis to reduce the impact of costly downtime for large-scale environments.

Highlights include:

- Quick installation via a hosted SaaS solution that takes minutes to configure

- Automatic tracing of individual requests from end to end across hosts and services

- Rich visualizations for quickly and accurately identifying frequently used code paths

- Easily customizable dashboards for data aggregation and correlation

- Built-in collaboration between Dev and Ops teams

- Smart alerting via email, SMS, and cloud-based collaboration tools

- Anomaly detection based on machine learning

- Transparent tag-based aggregation of performance data from microservices, containers, and other ephemeral hosts

- Collection of JVM-level metrics as part of Datadog’s existing JMX integration

Datadog also recently announced the public beta of its Log Management product following the acquisition of Logmatic.io, a Paris-based log management company. By combining infrastructure metrics, application traces, and log analysis within the same platform, users of the Datadog platform are able to greatly increase productivity, troubleshoot performance issues within applications, and avoid costly downtime.
