Datadog tracing for CI builds

For teams needing detailed observability in their CI/CD pipelines, we've recently released support for configuring Datadog as a tracing backend on the Buildkite agent to help monitor build and job metrics 🕵🏻

Huge thanks to our open source collaborators 💚


To get started, install the Datadog Agent on your Buildkite Agent machine(s) and configure the following environment variable: BUILDKITE_TRACING_BACKEND="datadog"

For more details, check out the agent configuration docs.
