I need assistance creating an alert dashboard.
what help do you need?
:datadog: :moneybag: Hi all. Does anyone use the DataDog APM? We’re finding it useful but the billing is hurting us (you get billed per EC2 instance). In our EKS cluster we use
c5.2xlarge spot instances to try and keep the overall number of servers down. Just wondering if others have this issue and have any solutions.
Hi, same here, We activated Datadog APM only in production because of it ant it’s a bit sad. We think that our Datadog billing is still good as we cannot afford a fulltime team to build the same solution from open source projects.
It’s definitely the downside of Datadog. I wish they would change their billing model for things like APM.
We’ve mostly settled on larger instances to increase bin packing. AWS instance costs scale with performance so you’re not overpaying for larger instances. You can also end up with additional performance per node as you’re taking less overhead
Yes that’s the FinOps approch that we actually have : reduce the number Kubernetes Nodes with larger instances to reduce the number of billing hosts.
@Shahar Glazner Hi, I need a dashboard for the alert triggered from the specific resource group. Like monthly or weekly
anyone using backstage? And any guidance on upgrading postgres versions?
