Datadog (dagster-datadog)

This library provides an integration with Datadog, to support publishing metrics to Datadog from within Dagster ops.

We use the Python datadogpy library. To use it, you’ll first need to create a DataDog account and get both API and Application keys.

The integration uses DogStatsD, so you’ll need to ensure the datadog agent is running on the host you’re sending metrics from.

dagster_datadog.datadog_resource ResourceDefinition[source]

Config Schema:
api_key (dagster.StringSource)

Datadog API key

app_key (dagster.StringSource)

Datadog application key

This resource is a thin wrapper over the dogstatsd library.

As such, we directly mirror the public API methods of DogStatsd here; you can refer to the DataDog documentation for how to use this resource.
