Installation Ruby Monitoring Ruby Monitoring

Pinpoint and solve Ruby application performance issues down to the line of code. New Relic is the only tool you’ll need to see everything in your Ruby application—from the end user experience to server monitoring. Trace slow database queries, 3rd party APIs and web services, caching layers, background jobs, and more. Ruby monitoring has never been easier.

Troubleshoot your app with Ruby monitoring

Use the Application Overview Dashboard for general information about your app and then drill down to geographical information, web transactions and errors. In one place, you can easily see:

  • Response time
  • Apdex score
  • Throughput (requests per minute)
  • Web transactions
  • Error rate
  • Recent events
  • Server information

Find Ruby Errors Fast

Whether your app is in a dedicated data center, a public cloud or a hybrid cloud, New Relic works just the same. You’ll see page load times for real users by browser and geography. Easily see the top five web transactions, their average response times and throughput, with links to transaction traces.

  • Trace distributed applications with Cross Application Tracing and our App Map dashboard.
  • Get critical information on NoSQL data stores and SQL databases
  • Monitor background jobs and web transactions
  • Create your own custom metrics, such as order value, login attempts, signups and registrations, and then create custom dashboards on those metrics.
  • Get alerted to application errors and exceptions - fix problems before they affect users.
