Infrastructure Monitoring Features

New Relic Infrastructure is designed to provide a complete view of the health and configuration changes for your entire host ecosystem across all environments.

What We Monitor

Cloud Services Monitoring

Infrastructure allows you to monitor the health and any recent changes affecting many popular cloud services. Get pre-configured dashboards for each service with the ability to create dynamic alerting. You get fast and easy deployment, service integrations with context, inventory, and controls, and integrations with 50+ cloud services.

On-host Integrations

On-host integrations allow you to send data from popular products and services to New Relic products.

See our full list of on-host integrations.

Kubernetes Monitoring

New Relic monitoring capabilities for Kubernetes provides customers with the ability to troubleshoot across the totality of their Kubernetes environment—both application-related and infrastructure-related.

In doing so, New Relic provides customers with quick resolutions, more consistency, better performance and ultimately the ability to contain the complexity that comes with running Kubernetes at scale.

Customer Instrumentation via SDK

Build your own custom integrations using New Relic's Integrations SDK. After you connect your integrations to Infrastructure, your alerts and dashboards automatically scale to provide you with complete coverage.

Applications in the Context of Your Infrastructure

Correlate Infrastructure Metrics to Applications

Bring application and infrastructure data sets together to help you deploy and manage stable applications. Correlate your application metrics (throughput, error rate, response time) with your host metrics and change events to get a holistic view of your entire stack and the interdependencies.


All your Infrastructure data is available in Insights, allowing you to create actionable dashboards for full-stack visibility.

You can also instantly pin a chart from Infrastructure into an Insights dashboard or run detailed queries to build a customized single pane of glass for a key service or cluster.

Dynamic Alerting

Use tags and custom metadata to scale your critical alerts dynamically as hosts change.

Create Alerts based on host attributes that dynamically get associated with hosts in your ever changing infrastructure. This frees you from having to reconfigure your alerts every time you make a change to the hosts in your environments.

Modern Monitoring

Cloud Native

Dissect your host (AWS EC2, Azure VMs, or Google Compute Engine) metadata to find the data you need. Our agent automatically imports all your metadata and tags so that you can monitor your instances in the same dynamic nature as the hosts in your datacenter.

Configuration Management Tools

  • Ansible
    New Relic provides source-available configuration management sample code to help you install the New Relic Infrastructure agent using workflows and tools that are common with many Ops teams.
  • Chef
  • Puppet

Docker Container Monitoring

Easily see all running containers and drill into them by host, container or any other tags to understand performance and how they are deployed.

Visibility Into Dynamic Infra

Slice and Dice Your Hosts with Filter Sets

Filter Sets are groups of entities that a user would like to view and investigate together. A user can group them according to how they view their work; for example, if they’re responsible for all Windows servers that host “X” application, or they’re responsible for a specific application and need to manage the underlying infrastructure.

Real-time, Searchable Inventory

Our powerful search tool allows you to find vulnerable packages and other inventory items quickly so you can know what’s installed where, at all times.

New Relic Infrastructure’s Inventory feature allows you to see the a precise picture of what’s installed across your entire infrastructure. It's easy to find an outdated package within seconds, along with a complete list of the hosts it's installed on.

Live-state Change and Event Tracking

See all the changes in your infrastructure. Diagnose root cause with a live event feed that includes changes to hosts, services, processes, config files, kernel settings, and more. Narrow down to a specific time-frame and expand the events to view a detailed description of what’s changed.

Server Monitoring

Host Health Metrics in Real-time

Full visibility into how your host is performing, sorted by the host traits you care about.

Infrastructure collects and displays health metrics such as CPU, load, and memory at the host level, as well as individual process, network and storage level.

Apply filters based on tags, metadata, and custom attributes that allow you to slice-and-dice into a subset of the infrastructure and view metrics for those as well.

  • Processes: View CPU performance across your systems, create CPU-based alerts, and discover which of your hosts have high or low loads.
  • Network: View network load across your systems, compare load balances, and view your most common network errors.
  • Storage: View disk usage across your systems, set disk-based alerts, and plan for future storage capacity.

Metrics and Events Correlation

Decrease MTTR with instant correlation of both real-time health metrics and configuration change events to know what’s changed and its impact on the health of your services and systems.

Near Real-time Data

Infrastructure securely collects and displays your data in five seconds, so your monitoring never lags behind reality.
