Supermarket Belongs to the Community

Supermarket belongs to the community. While Chef has the responsibility to keep it running and be stewards of its functionality, what it does and how it works is driven by the community. The chef/supermarket repository will continue to be where development of the Supermarket application takes place. Come be part of shaping the direction of Supermarket by opening issues and pull requests or by joining us on the Chef Mailing List.

Datadog Cookbook

Chef recipes to deploy Datadog's components and configuration automatically.


  • python >= 2.6
  • chef >= 10.12


  • Amazon Linux
  • CentOS
  • Debian
  • RedHat
  • Scientific Linux
  • Ubuntu


The following Opscode cookbooks are dependencies:

  • apt
  • chef_handler
  • yum



Just a placeholder for now, when we have more shared components they will probably live there.


Installs the Datadog agent on the target system, sets the API key, and start the service to report on the local system metrics


Installs the chef-handler-datadog gem and invokes the handler at the end of a Chef run to report the details back to the newsfeed.


Installs the language-specific libraries to interact with dogstatsd.


There are many other integration-specific recipes, that are meant to assist in deploying the correct agent configuration files and dependencies for a given integration.


  1. Add this cookbook to your Chef Server, either by installing with knife or downloading and uploading to your chef-server with knife.
  2. Add your API Key, either to attributes/default.rb, or by using the inheritance model and placing it on the node via environment, role or declaring it in another cookbook at a higher precendence level.
  3. Create an 'application key' for chef_handler here, and add it to your node, like in Step #2.
  4. Upload the cookbook to chef server via: knife cookbook upload datadog
  5. Associate the recipes with the desired roles, i.e. "role:chef-client" should contain "datadog::dd-handler" and a "role:base" should start the agent with "datadog::dd-agent".
  6. Wait until chef-client runs on the target node (or trigger chef-client manually if you're impatient)

We are not making use of data_bags in this recipe at this time, as it is unlikely that you will have more than one API key and one application key.
