Can metric be sent directly to Datadog?

It is possible to go to prometheus first then to Datadog

But it feels like unnecessary extra hops to me. So any plan on an integration to send directly to Datadog?

We are aware that a few clients are successfully using the Prometheus integration Datadog provides.

It is technically possible to add such direct support. I’m moving this to the “Feature Request” section.

If you want to contribute such integration we can work with you on the details.
