While Datadog offers 500+ builtin integrations, there will be the occasional service that you use that won’t be covered. Luckily it is fairly easy to write a custom agent check (or even a full on integration).
One integration we were missing was for our search engine Typesense. So I put together a quick custom agent check. I would like to possibly write an actual integration for it someday but I just wanted to get something off the ground quickly.
You can find it on Github here.
Upload the check script
Create a configuration file located at
typesense.yaml in the repo as an example.
