Availability monitoring is a core use case for New Relic. This had been a feature included in our Legacy Alerts product and we wanted to make sure you knew our preferred approach to making availability monitoring better in scale and scope by using either one (or better, both) New Relic Synthetics and Infrastructure.

In this video we cover:


  • Creating a host not reporting alert condition in New Relic Infrastructure



  • Creating a basic ping check in New Relic Synthetics



  • Choosing multiple alerting channels for your availability monitoring policy
