New Infrastructure Monitoring is now in public preview

Published 3 min read

Today we’re releasing the preview of an enhanced New Relic Infrastructure Monitoring experience to help DevOps, SRE, and IT Operations teams quickly pinpoint offending infrastructure components, determine incident blast radiuses, and identify the root cause of errors. 

Unified visibility for all infrastructure components

Detecting, triaging, and troubleshooting infrastructure health issues has never been more challenging for operations engineers. First, the sheer number of entities is increasing at an exponential rate with the rapid adoption of hybrid cloud, workload containerization, and the move to microservices-based architectures. Second, a large percentage of infrastructure is now ephemeral, which is unmanageable without sufficient change detection. Last, infrastructure isn’t just ITOps’ responsibility, infrastructure is now code that all engineers should be able to navigate to isolate infrastructure-specific performance bottlenecks.

New Relic’s Infrastructure Monitoring capabilities address these issues, delivering an enhanced DevOps experience that brings usability, efficiency, and end-to-end platform context to engineers to troubleshoot when issues arise.

Detect issues before customers are impacted

The New Relic platform finds potential infrastructure issues before they affect your customers. Know exactly where to focus your attention with New Relic Lookout and gain faster incident resolution through automatically surfaced causes and effects. Dig deeper with correlations and abnormal history to see how it impacts your whole system—no configuration needed.

Use New Relic Lookout to navigate your entire estate to pinpoint bottlenecks instantly.

Pinpoint infrastructure bottlenecks

New Relic has modernized and enhanced the infrastructure user interface with deep integration into the New Relic platform. With this new interface, you can navigate tens of thousands of infrastructure entities to isolate probable bottlenecks by filtering and sorting based on golden signals condition. Select multiple items to compare their golden metric signals and understand how infrastructure items are related to applications and other connected architecture.

Filter the golden signals columns and then sort the results to bring potential issues to the top.

Quantify blast radius

Using automap, discover the impact of an incident by visualizing the upstream and downstream dependencies that affect your services. Analyze historical telemetry using timewarp to view when incidents occurred and associated health changes by going backward and forwards in time.

New Relic automap - display topology maps to troubleshoot incidents. Use timewarp to find what and when the issue occurred.

Investigate root cause of anomalies

Analyze related entities, logs, alerts, events, golden signals, network metrics, and more, with context and in a unified experience so you can identify the root cause and resolve issues faster.

Mouse over a host to show in-context logs and automap actions. Related components automatically highlight detailed metrics and incident severity.

Our customers rely on New Relic’s industry-leading Kubernetes cluster explorer as well as Pixie for instant, no-code observability, in addition to our breadth of on-host integrations and integrations to cloud vendors like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google’s Cloud Platform help them achieve full-stack visibility.

Now, with our new Infrastructure Monitoring experience, we’ve doubled down on providing real-time troubleshooting workflows while incorporating broader platform context and unique topology visualizations into our user experience.

Get started

Check out our new Infrastructure Monitoring experience and tell us what you think. New Relic customers can start using it today, without any additional cost. Find it in New Relic One within the main menu under Infrastructure > Hosts New.

Note that the new enhanced Infrastructure Monitoring interface will be available to customers living in the European Union next week.
