Datadog is a hosted monitoring service that brings all your metrics and events in one place, so that they can be seen, shared and discussed by your development and operations teams. Once you integrate your Datadog and PagerDuty accounts you can send Datadog alerts to PagerDuty via a simple
@pagerduty mention in Datadog’s newsfeed. You can also follow incidents and escalations in real-time in Datadog’s newsfeed. By sending Datadog alerts to PagerDuty, you take full advantage of PagerDuty’s alerting functionality. With PagerDuty, you can receive alerts via phone call, SMS and email, set up automatic escalation of alerts and set up on-call duty scheduling for your ops teams.

By default, the Show all available PagerDuty incidents? option is selected in the PagerDuty integration settings within Datadog. If you only want to see events from the services you have defined in the Filter Events by Service setting, you should uncheck this option in your integration setup.
