New Relic for Atlassian JIRA
The New Relic for Atlassian JIRA plugin tracks your JIRA system, gathering metrics every 60 seconds. The metrics are continually updated through your New Relic dashboard. The plugin tracks metrics in two categories:
- database items
- Java metrics
The following system-wide performance-related Java/JVM metrics are tracked. These metrics are often sufficient for basic JIRA server health monitoring:
- number of available processors
- amount of Java memory used
- amount of available free memory
- total server memory
New Relic's APM product can provide more comprehensive JVM metrics on your JIRA system, if needed.
The following system-wide JIRA database metrics are collected in table form (or can be added to custom dashboards alongside other metrics from other sources).
- number of JIRA projects
- number of issue records
- number of custom fields defined
- number of workflows
- number of attachments
- number of comments
- number of JIRA users
- number of JIRA groups
This plugin is compatible with Atlassian JIRA version 6.3.14 and later.
