Datadog + Fargate

I’m trying to enable FargateTimers=Yes, but I realized that will cause problems because the app will try to report to the Datadog agent, which is not running in Fargate.

Datadog has some instructions on how to setup the Datadog Agent in Fargate: https://www.datadoghq.com/blog/monitor-aws-fargate/#deploying-the-datadog-agent-on-aws-fargate

@ddollar do you have any suggestions on how to make this happen in Convox?

I’m also interested in enabling both DataDog and Fargate but it looks like this might not be currently possible based on what I saw reading the DataDog documentation for Fargate. When running in Fargate, you have to run the agent as a second container in the same task definition which since Convox is generating the task definitions, would require Convox to implement support for.
