    How to Turn An Out of Hours Alert Into a Customer-Facing Root Cause Analysis

    Sometimes things go wrong. When your application stops working well, you need to explain to your customers what happened, why it happened and why it’s not going to happen again. Let me show you how we leverage New Relic Alerts, APM, Dashboards and NRQL to do exactly that by showing you a real world example of when my phone went off at 7pm and what we did next.

    Fireside Chat with Kelsey Hightower: Lighting The Fire

    Join Kelsey Hightower and Jonan Scheffler as they take a look back through the annals of Observability to find the “wow” moments. Kelsey recalls working at Puppet Labs in the age of Nagios, when the monitoring for downtime occasionally became the source of the downtime itself, and how it felt to open New Relic for the first time. Installing a single library and having instant access to an entire world of information was a game changer. We’ll walk through that moment and then carry the torch on to the present and future of Kubernetes, the Linux kernel and serverless technology. We’re going to relive those moments of excitement that brought us here, highlight the places we find that joy today and illuminate those gems lying just beyond the edges of what’s possible. The future is bright and we’re on our way, come join us as we light the fire.

    Incidents are Made of Things, Not Metrics

    We are wired to see and reason about objects, not numbers. Yet many observability tools focus on MELT data, leaving it to you to figure out what is impacted, who can fix it, and whether it even matters when something goes wrong. This talk draws insights from cognitive, organizational, and DevOps research to show the power of an entity-first approach to observability, and humbly suggests that we can learn a thing or two from Enterprise ITOps and CMDB practice along the way.

    Log Patterns

    You can spend hours searching your logs for a piece of information required to troubleshoot an issue. Inspecting log messages demands repetitive queries, usually constructed from a combination of time window, entity names, and log message content. However, in most cases, log messages look the same, with only minor changes in certain variables. Log patterns (LP) employ advanced clustering algorithms to group together similar log messages automatically. With LP, you can orient more quickly through millions of logs, while reducing the time it takes to identify unusual behavior in your log estate and monitor the frequency of known patterns over time to focus your energy on what matters, and exclude what's irrelevant. Finally, you can also see all the recent log messages in your account that were not clustered into a known pattern.

    Monitoring One of the Largest Consumer Launches in History and Implications on Observability

    New Relic recently supported one of the largest phone launches in history for some of North America’s telcos. While the user traffic was trivial to support (and we will explain how the New Relic database, collectors, and ingesters handle 1.4BB inserts/minute to our cloud monitoring platform) the monitoring traffic was the challenge. In this talk, we will explain observability and how we supported 15TT inspected systems every 10 minutes during this launch for days on end. Next, we will also present the pressures we observed on Amazon and on our operations and users. Lastly, what behaviors had to change to make this all work. From this experience, we extract the lessons learned about how to have observability done right, and feedback we have for the market on how to monitor at scale. Finally, we will get into how to automate and add AI to the mix to gain efficiencies.

    Pelicans in Orbit: Buckle Up Nerds, We’re Going to Space

    Ever wonder what life as a space pelican might be like? How do they even breathe? Do they eat freeze-dried fish? Jonan Scheffler is here to answer all of your questions. Some about pelicans, but many more about developer relations and how we do it here at New Relic.

    We’re going to talk about the past, present and future of devrel and how it came to pass that rather a lot of developers started getting up to mischief on the internet under the banner of The Relicans.

    If you’ve imagined getting into developer relations yourself or are interested in what motivates all these loud people to keep hopping up on stages you’ll likely find value here. At the very least you’ll walk away with a fresh perspective on the topic of astro-ornithology and the blueprints to design your very own pelican spacesuit.

    New Relic: Startup Observability No-brainer and Stepping Stone To Cloud Unit Costs

    Early stage startups have unique needs and constraints when it comes to choosing an observability platform - we’re excited to share Cloudthread’s path to choosing New Relic. Furthermore, while New Relic facilitates our internal application monitoring, it's also a fundamental part of our analytics platform, unlocking cloud unit costs for our customers and empowering cost conscious engineering teams.

    The Observability Expansion Pack: Fastly & New Relic

    Today’s networks can be a real nemesis--with setups being more complicated and loosely joined than ever before, it can be difficult to track your issues as they happen across multiple systems or vendors. And the real boss battle comes with tracking and managing your performance health; any hit points in performance can mean negative financial impact to your business. So how can you up your game and track things like critical performance problems in real-time across disparate platforms?

    In this session, learn how Fastly and New Relic have partnered to help power-up your observability to offer an end-to-end view of your performance metrics. With Fastly’s real-time log streaming and New Relic’s Explorer capabilities, customers can diagnose problems and fix them -- not just monitor issues as they happen. And that, it is a real game-changer worthy of any observability master.
