Datadog in the wild: Fixing slow writes on AWS Elastic Block Store

Konotor has grown tremendously over the last year, so the scale of our operations has grown quickly too. Like many growing companies, we were finding ourselves spending an increasing amount of energy to make our monitoring practices keep pace with our business. These were some of our pressing questions:

  • How can we detect issues before they significantly affect our users?
  • How do we correlate different events and metrics to make sense of what is happening?
  • How do we do all that as we grow our user base and our infrastructure? 

Then we found Datadog. It answers all those questions and more. Monitoring with Datadog has been hugely valuable for Konotor. In this article I’ll share how Datadog helped us solve one of our big problems: scaling our PostgreSQL database.
