We are now monitoring our four golden signals with Datadog. We had a lot of confusion on their pricing and until today we weren't sure what's actually included in the free and pro plan. As we're adopting serverless architecture, we were initially asked to pay for $5 for each of the Lambda. This is way too pricey considering what we needed is only a high level dashboard. We're actually in their free plan and happy with what we're seeing at the moment. We're also able to see our metrics for more than 1 day, despite their pricing page stating that we could only retain 1 day of metrics. (Please don't tell Datadog if you're reading this).
