    Hi there,
    so i decided to stay with datadog as it seem to work best for me.
    one thing i do not understand. decalog sends traces, metrics and logs from wordpress to datadog, but also i have datadog agent installed on the server which sends apache logs and also php logs along with traces and metrics.
    i want somehow to “aggregate” everything together.
    can i maybe send the logs/traces/metrics from decalog to the server agent so everything will “flow” from this agent and then everything will be tagged correctly and aggregated?
    right now in datadog APM I have this:
    https://snipboard.io/Cf8rH4.jpg
    when site_frontend, site_backend, ajax_request and rest_api_request are from decalog and the rest from the agent.
    really struggling with this one and datadog support don’t really undersand what decalog does…

    thank you!

    Hello @freshuk!
    As far as i know, the datadog agent can’t serves as a proxy for other applications. And even if this were the case, it would not be of much help: DecaLog considers site_frontend, site_backend, etc. as different services (which has a purpose 😉 ).

    What you want is “merging” all these services in a single one. So, first, are you sure there’s no option to do that in datadog?

    hey Pierre
    after hours of talking with their support, there seem to be no actual method of “merging” all the data..
    it’s like the date comes from 2 different servers while all data decalog and their agent sends, is from the same server..

    Hello @freshuk !

    So, if they don’t want to do it, DecaLog will do. I will implement this feature for the next version…
