You can now ingest both metrics and trace data from your Datadog agent into Lightstep. By changing the agent’s configuration (using either YAML or environment variables), you can send data to both Lightstep and Datadog. Once you’re sure that the data is being received as expected, you can change the configuration again to send it only to Lightstep.

We’ve published a new Learning Path that quickly shows how to send both metric and trace data to Lightstep and then view that data in a notebook.

Check it out!

To provide this migration path, we’ve released a new Microsatellite version. Read the release notes here.
