Finally, everybody's on the same page with increased visibility into integrated systems and app performance.
Triage App Problems Fast
You live and breathe systems. You've got tools that monitor your infrastructure and graphs that chart everything from IOPS to the level of the coffee maker. But let's be honest — the alerts you're getting from the CPU load and IOPS are coming from the app. New Relic is the performance and availability monitoring tool dedicated to the app.
The next time you get paged at 3 a.m. and the infrastructure is humming — just remember, New Relic can tell you which SQL statement or which line of code is responsible for dragging you out of bed!
A real world example:
An alert is generated as the load on the system spikes.
An alert is generated as real user page load reaches 6s.
Ops and Dev agree that the app is the root cause.
The team locks in on the problem transaction.
The team finds a bad query and the provided explain plan helps them identify the fix.
Make your Dev Ops better than they were before you read this.
