Installation

composer require voodoosms/datadog-logging

Usage

You need to set up some env variables for this to work:

DATADOG_APIKEY=
DATADOG_LOGGING_URL=tcp-intake.logs.datadoghq.eu
DATADOG_LOGGING_PORT=1883
DATADOG_LOGGING_SOURCE=
DATADOG_LOGGING_SERVICE=
DATADOG_LOGGING_TAGS=

Then you can use it using Laravel's Log facade:

Log::channel('datadog')->info('message here')

You should set the name of the event when logging with this though:

Log::channel('datadog')->info('message here', ['event' => 'some event'])

Anything passed into the array will also be included as a field in the datadog log:

Log::channel('datadog')->info('message here', ['event' => 'some event', 'user' => $user])

Logs are sent to datadog using telnet, so the DatadogLoggerHandler dispatches a SendDatadogLogJob, so you will need a queue worker running for these logs to get to datadog, using the queue datadog:

php artisan queue:work --queue=datadog

Alternatively, you can send these logs synchronously by adding 'ddqueue' => false to the log context:

Log::channel('datadog')->info('message here', ['ddqueue' => false])

You can also use the datadog helper function to quickly send a log:

datadog('test', ['user' => $user]);
