New Relic’s unified database (NRDB) gives you a complete view of your technology stack, enabling you to identify, understand, and resolve the issues that impact your business.

NRDB takes your queries directly to the data for a lightning-fast median response time of 60 ms with the ability to analyze over 50 billion events in a single query. Learn how NRDB can give you a leg up on your competition.

Don’t just analyze, take action

To succeed in business today, you need to systematically operationalize the data that drives your business and use that information to accelerate your development processes and decision-making. With New Relic, you can define what your organization collectively cares about, track those things in a consistent way, and act on what you see in real time.

  • When a new team or service spins up, you can generate a dashboard with data and KPIs that are specific and relevant to that group.
  • Narrow focus or broad overview: Display metrics that matter most to your team and, when something goes wrong, you can save time searching for answers because you’ll have a full picture of the issue. 


Ask questions and find answers

New Relic gives you both a broad view of your data as well as the ability to drill deep down with increased granularity. You can ask questions, get answers, and continue iterating as you uncover more detail. 

  • Do a broad search to see how many customers you have—or fine-tune your search and see how many customers you have using Chrome version 63 in Germany.
  • Pivot from one focus to the next quickly and easily: Start with a NRQL query, change it, run it, and change it again. 
  • The autocomplete feature shows you what’s available, and guides you while building/structuring your query.


Understand what your data is saying (and share your own story)

Data is only as good as the story it tells. With New Relic you can reveal the truth in your data and frame your information using the right context. 

  • Build a data app for a specific team or person, or generate a dashboard and put it up on a tv screen. 
  • Line charts, bar charts, area charts, pie charts, histograms, funnels, and cohorts are just some of our ready-made visualizations.


Extend the reach of your data

New Relic dashboards are available for every data source, which means you can stream and track data from New Relic agents (APM, Browser, Mobile, Infrastructure, and Synthetics) and 3rd party instrumentation (Prometheus, DropWizard, Zipkin, OpenTelemetry, Fluentd, and more!) for deeper analysis, segmentation, and filtering.

Essential insights for modern business initiatives

Optimize your cloud spend

Collect and view your AWS billing data in one place, track KPIs for specific apps and services, and easily stay on top of your budget, potential overruns, actual vs. forecasted trends, and more.

Establish effective DevOps processes

Give everyone a shared understanding of priorities and outcomes which can help guide action during daily stand-ups, foster more effective teaming, and boost the success and pace of your release cycles.

Showcase performance improvements over time

Compare before-and-after health in one dashboard. For instance, how a refactored app in dev looks next to one currently in prod, or the behavior of certain customer experience metrics during migration. logo Constant Contact logo FlightStats logo

“Whether I want to look at site speed, purchase success rates, or any other metric we’ve deemed important, I can look at a New Relic dashboard that shows me day-by-day or hour-by-hour if performance is improving or degrading. This is hugely helpful. ”

Garett Vargas, CTO,

“It started with one business dashboard in New Relic that shows transactions for a new product offering. But now we’re getting requests for other custom dashboards that show usage, transactions, button clicks, and other metrics that help stakeholders measure success and track KPIs that are important for the business.”

Adam Gelinas, Advisory Software Engineer, Constant Contact

“There’s less friction now that we have New Relic. It has allowed us to have a common language across the company, whether we’re talking to a developer, an IT engineer, or someone in marketing, sales, or management.”

Alex Witherspoon, Software Engineer, FlightStats
