Why developers choose Lumigo over Datadog
Datadog is blind to some common managed services and the data passing between them, leaving developers with broken traces that have to be manually reconstructed to get a complete view.
Datadog can’t trace through every service in context, like this common Lambda to SNS to SQS flow.
Lumigo automatically stitches together asynchronous requests in context, across all micro and managed services, end-to-end.
Lumigo traces from event trigger through managed services like AWS DynamoDB and Step Functions, as well as 3rd parties like Twilio.
It may take a few days to set-up DataDog’ with agent-based tracing and manual instrumentation. An overwhelming interface makes it hard to surface critical information.
With no code changes to enable Lumigo’s automated tracing, users get immediate insights. There’s no learning curve either–get an alert, easily identify the root cause with payload request data, fix it and move on.
Tracing comes at an additional cost for each invocation with Datadog, and without billing alerts, you’ll never know if you’re incurring more cost.
Lumigo’s tiered pricing is simple. With a fixed rate based only on traces, you pay the same every month. Plans start at $99 per month for 1M traces, with no hidden fees.

AWS Serverless Hero
and Lumigo Developer Advocate
Lumigo has a better monitoring system for serverless, Datadog doesn’t get close. We don’t get any useful information from Datadog to monitor our serverless systems, Lumigo is the best option.
We were able to take the new sonos.com to production with the utmost confidence, knowing it would scale with minimal errors. I don’t think our website would be where it is today without Lumigo.
