We use datadog to monitor much of our infrastructure. Often a sidecar datadog agent is able to provide a statsd daemon to receive metrics and forward them on.
Is there a way to do similar with our astronomer cloud deployment? Could we add another container to our deployment?
The alternative I am planning to go with if there is not already a known better approach is to use a custom entrypoint script that will spawn a datadog agent in the background. Something along these lines:
However, I generally avoid running two processes in a single container and hope there is a good alternative.
