Lynis and Datadog

Datadog is a monitoring service for servers, databases, applications, and services. It provides a SaaS-based platform that includes data analytics.


Paul Kremer created a role on Ansible Galaxy to install a Datadog check for Lynis. The role provides a playbook and Datadog check that pulls data from the Lynis report file. The role works together with the generic Datadog role (Datadog.datadog).
