I am in the process of getting DataDog set up to work with our application on Aptible, and so far I have the push-button metrics integration working and I also have APM working by posting traces to a separate Aptible app that’s running the datadog agent image as described here. So far so good.
Now I’m trying to get DogStatsD set up for custom metrics but no luck so far, and I’m wondering if this is even possible? It works over UDP which doesn’t seem to be supported. There is also a Unix Domain Socket option but that would require getting the DataDog agent running in a container on the same host as our application somehow which I also fear is not achievable.
Has anyone figured out a way to use DogStatsD in Aptible? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
