Whether you're managing a small online business or using Jamstack to scale a larger web application, you need actionable metrics that are easily accessible so you can deliver an exceptional digital customer experience and quickly find the root of any end-user facing problem. New Relic browser monitoring is an all-in-one solution that helps front-end, full-stack, and web developers measure and improve application performance and end-user responsiveness.
We’ve recently added some new features to our browser monitoring experience so you can easily troubleshoot and optimize your front-end applications. Check out our updates:
Core Web Vitals front and center
Google’s Core Web Vitals are now natively incorporated into the browser monitoring user interface, so you can see these critical metrics at-a-glance without having to build custom dashboards.
Google Core Web Vitals are industry-standard metrics that help you analyze load performance, responsiveness, and layout stability of your web applications. With this feature, you can now immediately visualize and analyze your applications’ largest contentful paint, first input delay, and cumulative layout shift. On top of this, you can also set alerts to be immediately notified when a Core Web Vital metric falls outside of a recommended level. If your site unexpectedly slows down or crashes, front-end engineers can find the problem and dive deeper into the issue without context switching.
We understand the vigilance needed to maintain high page availability and by serving up relevant insights and signals natively in the UI, we make it easy for you to reduce your mean time to resolution (MTTR) and keep a finger on the pulse of your key performance metrics.
View user traffic across devices
Additionally, you can now view all front-end traffic filtered straightaway by three device types: desktop, mobile, and tablet. You can also narrow down these results further by filtering by Core Web Vitals and other metrics.
This is particularly useful as you debug and optimize your front-end experiences, because you can analyze more granular data. For example, you might see whether Firefox or Chrome contribute to higher page load time when your application is accessed on desktop. Being able to pinpoint this information, without any coding required, can significantly reduce your mean time to detection and resolution.
Filter web traffic by region
Within browser monitoring, our new filterable geography page presents visuals that help you hone in on key insights about your front-end experience with an intuitive map. This map shows your user data by region, and you can visualize your traffic and error hotspots alongside device type information. For example, if it's unclear which regions are experiencing higher page load times than normal, filterable geography can assist in tracking down the root of the problem.
These new features can help you quickly detect issues in webpage performance and may prove very useful in dynamic environments where scaling quickly is a priority.
New Relic knows how important real user monitoring is to our customers, and we are continuously working to innovate and deliver new features for all our front-end monitoring products. There are more announcements to come, so stay tuned. And don't miss our keynote at Futurestack 2022!
