Currently it seems we can only post alerts to Datadog. This is great for informational purposes but doesn't offer much else. We also enjoy the one-stop-shop of DD for all our dashboard and alerting needs. If we were able to send metrics to DD from sumo, say 500 error codes exceeding a certain message count in $NumRawResults, we would be able to plot, trend and alert on these over time.
DD API call to populate a metric require a time value to be passed for the metric post to be valid. This is how it would look in the payload to the "series" API:
"points": “[[NEEDTIMEHERE, $NumRawResults]]",
