Winter 2018

New Relic dashboard with multiple cloud clients New Relic dashboard with MultiCloud display.

New integrations for faster, smarter cloud deployment

New integrations for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform make it easier to observe and alert on what’s happening in multi-cloud and hybrid environments. Unlike other tools which provide limited visibility, New Relic gives you a consistent view across all your apps and hosts, no matter where they live—and no matter if you’re just starting to plan your migration or fully running in the cloud—so you can accelerate your cloud adoption and deployment.

Our new cloud service integrations include:

  • Google Cloud Platform: Compute Engine, Cloud Storage Service, Cloud Functions Service
  • AWS: Elastic Beanstalk, Simple Email Service (SES), Auto Scaling, CloudTrail (beta), Personal Health Dashboards (beta)
    See our full list of AWS integrations.
  • Azure: Virtual Machines, Functions, Cosmos DB, Service Bus, Virtual Network, AppService, SQL DB Service, Storage (beta), Load Balancer (beta)
    See our full list of Azure integrations.

For more details on these new cloud service integrations, check out our blog post or request a demo.

Additional Platform Updates

New Relic Insights: More Dashboard Control, More Querying Power

The new Dashboard API gives you more programmatic control over your dashboards—for example, to promote consistent monitoring standards and metrics across your organization or to share unique dashboards among different teams. And with support for multi-attribute FACETs in NRQL queries, now you can group data together in powerful new ways—what used to require multiple queries can be consolidated into a single query, making it easier to mix and match attributes that may be correlated and close gaps in understanding in your data sets.

New Relic APM: .NET Core 2.0 Agent—Now GA!

New Relic APM now supports instrumentation of .NET Core 2.0 applications for both Linux and Windows. The recent release adds new installation methods for Linux package managers and Docker. .NET Core and .NET Framework applications can be compared within New Relic to better understand the performance gains of refactored applications.

New Relic APM: NET Agent 7.0 Live Instrumentation

The release of .NET Agent 7.0 introduces the automatic pickup of custom XML instrumentation configurations without the need to restart a monitored application. DevOps teams can now get deeper visibility into specific parts of a production application without the need for a service interruption.

New Relic APM: Java Agent

The latest agent expands instrumentation support to Java 9 applications and JVM runtimes. In addition, framework instrumentation support has been added for WebSphere 9 (both Traditional and Liberty profile), Jersey Client, RabbitMQ Java Client 5.0, Play 2.6, Akka HTTP 10, and Scala 2.12.

New Relic APM: Ruby Agent

Developers can now instrument applications built in Ruby 2.5. External call instrumentation has been improved by adding framework support for Typhoeus Hydra (with request level visibility into HTTP requests) and by adding a Public API for cross-application tracing of external method calls.

New Relic Infrastructure: New On-Host Integrations

These integrations let you view, filter, analyze, and query data from various on-host sources, create your own dashboards, and set alerts on the behavior of these systems—directly in New Relic. Check out the related post to get started with our three new on-host integrations for StatsD, Redis, and Apache. You can see our complete list of on-host integrations (including MySQL, Cassandra, and NGINX) here.

Enterprise DevOps at scale

Enterprise-level organizations now have more administrative control and easier integration points for account management in New Relic.

Role-based access control (RBAC) provides fine-grained management over who can view and configure specific feature sets. Users can be created, assigned to the correct team, and given access to only the applications and servers appropriate to their area, automatically. A new dashboard API (beta) lets you programmatically create and update dashboards, fitting into your existing deployment process. Company-wide dashboards enable users to visualize data across multiple accounts and run queries against any sub-account from a single dashboard and keep the entire system in one cohesive view. And new Integrations SDK and on-host integrations for New Relic Infrastructure let you automatically capture metrics, events, and inventory data from any infrastructure application from Redis to Kafka.

Additional Platform Updates

New Relic APM: Error Analytics, powered by NRᴬᴵ

Three new updates use NRᴬᴵ capabilities to enhance error analysis. Error profiles filter what’s unusual in an error or set of errors, letting you quickly identify the most likely culprit and get to work resolving the issue. Expected errors lets you identify and configure the Java application errors you expect, so those errors are collected for analysis but excluded from application error rate—thus reducing error “noise” and letting the signal of unexpected errors come through. NRQL baseline alerting adjusts intelligently and notifies you when an expected error’s frequency jumps to a level that’s outside the norm.

New Relic APM: Enhanced .NET Support

Quickly instrument .NET Core services and applications with the agent for .NET Core 2.0. You can understand the way your applications and services are performing out-of-the-box, regardless of whether you’re using Windows, Linux, Azure, or AWS. The latest Agent for .NET framework greatly improves support of async methods and adds OWIN support for environments with non-IIS web servers (e.g. Apache and NGINX). We support Couchbase, Rabbit MQ, and attributes instrumentation, with Restsharp support coming soon. Learn more about .NET monitoring with New Relic.

New Relic APM: More Integrations, Expanded Instrumentation

We’ve extended our industry-leading language and framework support with broad APIs across agents as well as visibility into AWS DynamoDB and the Vert.x server framework within the Java agent, plus new support for Node 8.0 and Tornado 4 instrumentation improvements to Python. DevOps teams can also now work even more cohesively across their development toolchain thanks to the new integration with Atlassian Jira version 7.

New Relic Synthetics / New Relic Browser: Comparative Charting

Comparative Charting breaks down the barrier between your Browser and Synthetics data. This feature enables both Browser and Synthetics to display data from each product, so you can view meaningful information while reducing the need to jump between product tabs.

New Relic Browser: Accelerated Mobile Pages

New Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) support lets you compare the performance of AMP pages to your other mobile pages, as well as how these AMP pages perform across devices, geographies, browsers, domains, and more. Track the health of each AMP release, tie those results to overall performance, and get a total view of the state of your AMP applications.

New Relic Mobile: HTTP Request Data

New updates in our category-leading mobile APM product let you observe successful and error-generating HTTP requests from the app, with new MobileRequest and MobileRequestError event data. Crash event trail and handled exceptions¹ together build on our best-in-class crash analysis offering.

New Relic Insights: Dashboard Notes

Add notes to your Insights dashboards with the new dashboard notes feature—you can add a link to runbooks, additional context for nearby charts, or your favorite cat meme! Shareable snapshots² will give you powerful new sharing capabilities for individual charts and dashboards, including Slack integration, which is especially useful during incident response.

New Relic Infrastructure: Azure Cloud Service Integrations

Five new Azure Cloud Service integrations are available in public beta—VM Metadata, Service Bus, Cosmos DB, Functions, and Virtual Network. You can now view specific and detailed Azure information through features like Alerts, Dashboards, and NRQL queries.

New Relic Browser: Domain Conditions

Manage and control the sources of your front-end performance data, helping you maintain focus and accuracy.

New Relic APM: Node.js 2.0 API

Writing instrumentation can be hard. Particularly for async languages like Node.js. The new API makes it easier by doing much of the dirty work: It creates high-quality instrumentation that has feature-parity with our out-of-the box instrumentation for web frameworks and datastores. Read the docs on using the new API to instrument a datastore or web framework.

New Relic Insights: More querying power

Our New Relic query language (NRQL) got a big boost with new syntax: RATE() and FACET CASES() let DevOps better understand their systems.

New Relic Alerts: NRQL Alerts is now GA!

This enables customers to easily create highly customized alerts using NRQL queries on the data stored in New Relic Insights and the New Relic database (NRDB). Check out our blog posts “NRQL Alerts Goes GA” and “NRQL Alerts Will Change How You Think About Using New Relic Data” for all the details.

Winter 2017


More power for enterprise DevOps teams

Investigate incidents faster

Dynamic baseline alerts help you recognize and stay ahead of potential problem areas. Timepicker lets you narrow in on a specific incident time-window. Metric explorer lets you easily see both flexible event and aggregated metric data in a single view. And copyable dashboards makes postmortem activities easier.

More precise alerts

With the ability to craft precise alerts from NRQL queries, New Relic Alerts gives you nearly limitless alerting flexibility. You can also create alert conditions to help monitor your application's JVMs. This lets you easily watch each JVM within your app for performance issues, keeping quality high and customers happy.

Also released, dynamic targeting constantly looks for applications that have the appropriate labels, and then automatically applies the alerting condition to those applications.

Don’t start with a blank slate

Add-to-Insights lets you add charts from across the New Relic Platform to Insights with the click of a button. For example, everything from JVM garbage collection statistics to CPU usage metrics to disk I/O can now be instantly pinned to Insights and visualized alongside any of your other charts.

Better illustrate your team’s impact

New Relic Insights is a great way to share context from team-to-team. For example, company-wide dashboards gives customers a master view of multiple accounts, so they can more easily visualize data from any account and share it across the org.

Ever-expanding visibility into the entire stack

Best-in-class customer experience monitoring

Crash analysis and MobileRequestError from New Relic Mobile lets you analyze the most impactful crashes and request failures and fix them faster. Source map support in New Relic Browser gives you more actionable visibility into front-end JS errors by showing you exactly where in the original source the error occurred, even if your code is minified.

Go beyond application visibility

New Relic APM now has more flexibility and depth than ever. You can monitor and troubleshoot database performance down to the individual instance with datastore instances for service maps. And we’ve made it even easier for teams to integrate and tailor our Java Agent to their specific needs with updates to our agent’s API. Customers running .NET applications now have access to error analytics.

Also, we now offer new runtime metrics for the Node VM (aka V8) and a dedicated Node VMs view for visualizing and analyzing this new data from the Node.js.

Don’t get pinged when you don’t want to

Maintenance windows in New Relic Synthetics lets you define one-off or recurring time-windows during which one or more monitors will not run, helping you avoid false alarms and keep your SLA data clean.

Essential capabilities for infrastructure monitoring

Intelligently monitor dynamic environments with our newest product, New Relic Infrastructure. Create alerts for “Host not reporting,” “Process down,” and “Fullest Disk %” metrics, letting you stay on top of issues and react with greater speed.

AI to aid your troubleshooting

With the unmatched power and cloud-scale of the New Relic Platform underpinning it, Project Seymour uses machine learning to elevate the most interesting, most relevant, and most actionable bits of your data — helping you see your digital business even more clearly.

Seymour is currently in private beta. Sign up for updates here.


With the exception of company-wide dashboards, some alerting capabilities, and New Relic Synthetics new public locations, the features are generally available to paying New Relic customers. All features are scheduled to become generally available to customers by the end of the second calendar quarter of 2017.
