Monitor Oracle Cloud Infrastructure with Datadog

Igor Aragao de Souza
Principal Big Data Consultant

We’re pleased to announce integration between Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) and Datadog, a popular monitoring and security platform. With the Oracle Cloud Observability and Manageability platform, we aim to meet our customers where they are. We understand that customers may have standardized their operations with third-party tools. We want to be interoperable with those tools to enable customers to easily adopt OCI with minimal retraining, rearchitecture, and change in processes. In this blog, we walk you through how to use Datadog to monitor OCI.

Use cases

Joint OCI and Datadog customers can move logs from Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Logging service to Datadog for the following processes:

  • Running analytics on service, audit, and custom logs in Datadog

  • Consolidating logs from multicloud and hybrid environments

Solution overview

This solution uses the newly released Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Service Connector Hub to read logs from OCI Logging and invoke Oracle Functions to ingest logs into Datadog. For detailed steps about OCI and Datadog Integration, visit our tutorial into the Learn Page. The Oracle Function code can be downloaded from GitHub.

About the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure services used in this solution

OCI Logging is a cloud native, fully managed, distributed logging platform that simplifies ingesting, managing, and analyzing logs from your entire stack. The service brings all your logs into one view: infrastructure, application, audit, and database. To learn more about Logging, see Announcing the general availability of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Logging.

OCI Service Connector Hub moves data between services, both within OCI and from OCI to third-party tools. For extra processing and compliance storage needs, it moves data, such as logs from Logging, to services such as OCI Object Storage, OCI Streaming, and OCI Monitoring. It triggers functions for custom data processing and sends notifications about changes to cloud resources. To learn more about Service Connector Hub, see Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Service Connector Hub now generally available.

Oracle Functions is a fully managed, multi-tenant, highly scalable, on-demand, Functions-as-a-Service platform. To learn more about Oracle Functions, see the documentation.
