How to access Solace Cloud statistics and integrate it with monitoring platforms (Datadog)

sjaaksjaak Member Posts: 41 ✭✭

Hi, I did some research regarding monitoring. Solace offers Insights which is running on Datadog. But it seems it's a closed system. We want to know how we can access Solace Cloud statistics and send them to public cloud monitoring platforms like Datadog. So we can integrate Solace with existing monitoring solutions of customers and our own monitoring platform we use for Boomi. Is this on the roadmap? We also got this question from several prospects.

    For collecting broker metrics and send them to a custom monitoring platform, you can use syslog or SEMP to query any of the metrics you are interested in. You can check out more details about syslog forwarding here https://docs.solace.com/Best-Practices/Monitoring-BP.htm which will be very helpful for your usecase.

    As of right now, Insights for metrics only go to Insights/datadog so as a short term solution, you can either consider the syslog forwarding and using SEMP as mentioned earlier or use PubSub+ Monitor. Le me know if this is helpful and does what you were looking for

    Hi @Tamimi ,
    Thank you for your reply. SEMP should work I think. But it's a lot of work to set it up: 1 HTTP calls per metric + parsing. Since Solace Insights is already using Datadog, I wonder if there's documentation available on how Datadog and Solace have been integrated. For example, with Boomi we setup 1 Datadog .yaml with all the metrics we want to get and Datadog takes care of the rest using JMX. So 1 config and 1 call. That's it.

    Hi @sjaak, I see what you mean. We don't have that kind of yaml file yet.
