Monitor Apache Ignite with Datadog

Apache Ignite is a computing platform for storing and processing large datasets in memory. Ignite can leverage hardware RAM as both a caching and storage layer to serve as a distributed, in-memory database or data grid. This allows Ignite to ingest and process complex datasets—such as those from real-time machine learning and analytics systems—in parallel and at faster speeds than traditional databases supported by only disk storage.
