The integration exports the following five metrics to your Datadog dashboard:
|Metric Exported||Metric Name in Datadog|
|Average number of requests|
|Average request execution time|
|Success rate of requests|
|Number of websockets open|
Non zero values of all the above metrics are exported over a one minute time interval. Each metric name is prefixed with

Clicking on an entry from the table will show the details about the trace, including a flame graph, which contains a visual representation of where the operation spent its execution over time. For example, in this case a query took 2.31 milliseconds in total, of which 758 microseconds was the actual Postgres database processing the query.
