Nginx Plugin for New Relic

This project provides an NPI-compatible plugin capable of reporting Nginx statistics to the New Relic platform.


  • Java Runtime (JRE) environment Version 1.6 or later
  • A running instance of Nginx with the HTTP stub status module enabled
  • Network access to New Relic (authenticated proxies are not currently supported)


This plugin supports installation via the New Relic Platform Installer (NPI).

./npi install com.ryanchouinard.newrelic.nginx


You will need an instance of Nginx running with a status URL accessible by the host running the plugin. Consult the Nginx manual for details about the http_stub_status_module.

During installation, you will be prompted to configure the plugin. Choosing to do so will open the configuration file in an editor. The configuration file is a simple JSON document. The keys should be self-explanatory, but name can be any string you wish to identify the host in the New Relic dashboards, and status_url is the full URL to the Nginx stub status page.

The Nginx plugin extends the power of New Relic's monitoring capabilities.
