How to send k6 metrics to Datadog

 

This article will show how you can use k6 to store the results of your load tests into Datadog. 

Datadog is a monitoring and analytics platform that can help you to get full visibility of the performance of your applications. We ❤️ Datadog at LoadImpact and use it to monitor the different services of our Load Testing platform.

k6 is our open source load testing tool for testing the performance of your applications. One of the attractive features of k6 is that you can output the result of your load tests to different sources; for example:
  • stdout/console
  • JSON
  • InfluxDB
  • Kafka
  • LoadImpact

And now, you can send data from your k6 load test into Datadog for further analysis and correlation with Datadog analytics/metrics.
