Project description

# Django Datadog

A simple Django middleware for submitting timings and exceptions to Datadog.

## Installation

Download the code into your project and install it.

`bash git clone git://github.com/conorbranagan/django-datadog.git cd django-datadog python setup.py install `

Add datadog to your list of installed apps.

`python INSTALLED_APPS += ('datadog') `

Add the following configuration to your projects’ settings.py file:

`python DATADOG_API_KEY = 'YOUR_API_KEY' DATADOG_APP_KEY = 'YOUR_APP_KEY' DATADOG_APP_NAME = 'my_app' # Used to namespace metric names `

The API and app keys can be found at https://app.datadoghq.com/account/settings#api

Add the Datadog request handler to your middleware in settings.py.

`python MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES += ('datadog.middleware.DatadogMiddleware') `

## Usage

Once the middlewhere installed, you’ll start receiving events in your Datadog stream in the case of an app exception. Here’s an example:

![example django exception](https://dl.dropbox.com/u/126553/django-datadog.png)

You will also have new timing metrics available:

  • my_app.request_time.{avg,max,min}
  • my_app.errors

Metrics are tagged with path:/path/to/view

Note: my_app will be replaced by whatever value you give for DATADOG_APP_NAME.
