New Relic instruments the Play Framework version 1.2 and 2 to provide you with insight into your Play application.
When you add New Relic to your Play Framework app, you see your web transactions organized by controller method. You can immediately see summary data about what web transactions are called most, and where they are spending their time.
New Relic shows a breakdown and trace details for all web transaction activity, including the invocations of Akka actors, Scala Promises and Futures, and the WS API.
By adding New Relic code to your Play templates (Scala or Groovy), you can also get Real User Monitoring data.
