How to configure the Agent
If you are using packages on linux, the main configuration file lives in /etc/dd-agent/datadog.conf. Per-check configuration files are in /etc/dd-agent/conf.d. We provide an example in the same directory that you can use as a template.

Why Use a Proxy
Using the Agent as a Proxy
Using a Web Proxy as Proxy
# If you need a proxy to connect to the Internet, provide the settings here proxy_host: my-proxy.example.com proxy_port: 3128 proxy_user: my_user proxy_password: my_password
Using HAProxy as a Proxy
