The datadog component sends all state changes to Datadog using a Datadog Agent.

Datadog allows you to analyze, monitor, cross-reference and alert upon your data. You can use it to detect statistical anomalies, see graphs across multiple sources in real-time, send critical alerts to Slack, etc.

The component also sends events from the logbook into Datadog, allowing you to correlate these events with your data.

To use the datadog component in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:
