Collect metric and trace data from Open Source, vendor-agnostic tools and display that information alongside all the other systems and services data you’re managing.
Streamline your instrumentation
With all your business-critical observability data in one place, you can reduce the operational burden—and expense—of maintaining other systems for storing, querying, viewing, and alerting on that data.
Take advantage of built-in instrumentation
By using open and existing standards, instrumentation is more portable and requires much less time to create, install, maintain, and switch. So DevOps teams can focus on what they’ve instrumented and not have to manage the instrumentation alone.
Embrace simplicity and transparency
Our open protocols, formats, and APIs for ingesting data from any source—such as OpenCensus, Envoy, DropWizard, and Prometheus—are easy to adopt and use. Plus, by using pre-built software packages and libraries your instrumentation will be high quality, less brittle, and resilient to upgrades.
New Relic Metrics API
Use New Relic’s pre-built exporters and integrations—or ones contributed by third-party developers—to collect, query, and visualize your metric data. The Metrics API sends your metric data for storage in NRDB as dimensional metric data, based on key:value pairs.
Telemetry SDK: Pre-built data exporters and Integrations
Get up and running quickly with our open-source Telemetry SDK. It's an easy-to-use client-side interface for accepting the metric and trace data you collect, implements New Relic best practices (so you don’t have to), and forwards the data to New Relic via the Metrics API and Traces API.
