Is it possible to query historical data after a host has been destroyed?

If a host stops reporting data for more than 24 hours Datadog will no longer list metrics for that host in the UI dropdown menus, however, though the metrics are not listed, you can still query this data with the JSON editor. A simple solution is to query for the host name or tags.


If you're planning to frequently churn hosts we recommended adding a tag to the Agent in the datadog.conf file or in the the Infrastructure page (user tags) or learn more about other methods here.
