Documentation Datadog data source Datadog metrics service

Datadog metrics service

The Datadog data source plugin works by connecting to Datadog using an API key. Because you are hosting metrics in Datadog, you may encounter API rate limits accessing your data. However, you can use Grafana’s Datadog metrics service, which allows you to forward metrics directly from your Datadog Agents and store the data in Grafana Cloud.
