Amazon Web Services (AWS) recently released Amazon Linux 2023 (AL2023), which is available to use with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), and today we’re announcing support for this new modern distribution of Linux so that you can confidently monitor your applications and infrastructure just as you’ve done with Amazon Linux 2. Based on Fedora, AL2023 integrates with the latest AWS features, and New Relic’s agents support them. In fact, the entire New Relic platform supports AL2023, including Graviton architectures, so there are no gaps for you to worry about.

Note: New Relic is waiting on Fluent Bit for logging support for the infrastructure agent. We anticipate this support will be forthcoming.

When using AL2023, you can be confident that the New Relic platform offers a seamless monitoring experience so you can improve application and infrastructure performance. Speed up your troubleshooting workflows by incorporating Amazon EC2 service and instance metrics into your full-stack observability with New Relic.

If you're a new or existing New Relic customer monitoring AWS workloads on Amazon EC2 and want to take advantage of the updated AL2023 distribution, the rest of this post covers the various ways to install the New Relic infrastructure monitoring agent.

Guided install

Use our guided install to install the New Relic infrastructure agent with a single command to start monitoring your instance in real time.

New Relic guided install for AWS Linux 2022 agent

The New Relic guided install offers an enhanced instrumentation experience providing agent installation and incorporating alerts and dashboards.

Bootstrap to receive data in 60 seconds

Installing an agent for one instance

The New Relic guided install works best when you’re deploying the infrastructure monitoring agent to a single Amazon EC2 instance. You’ll start receiving data in less than 60 seconds.

Installing an agent for multiple instances

If you want to deploy the New Relic infrastructure monitoring agent at scale, the fastest way is to configure the instance launch configuration and bootstrap it through AWS. The benefit of this method is that bootstrapping allows you to add additional components at launch.

Other ways to instrument your Amazon EC2 instances

Other methods to deploy the New Relic infrastructure monitoring agent at scale include:

Next steps

If you haven’t already integrated your New Relic account with AWS, use guided install to deploy the recommended Amazon CloudWatch Metric Streams integration. Integrating with AWS will stream Amazon CloudWatch telemetry data to your New Relic account and enhance your full-stack observability. This integration allows you to correlate the AWS services you use with your cloud-based infrastructure and applications and your end-user experience.

Next, install the New Relic infrastructure monitoring agent to your Amazon EC2 instances. Our infrastructure monitoring agent collects performance and health data about your Amazon EC2 system resources and the hosts’ processes. At the same time, it acts as a forwarder for core services metrics, which are collected by on-host integrations.

In addition, deploy applications instrumented with an APM agent to your new AL2023 instances.

Finally, view your Amazon EC2 hosts with the New Relic infrastructure monitoring experience. Here you can unify visibility for all infrastructure components, detect issues before customers are impacted, pinpoint infrastructure and application bottlenecks, quantify an impact radius, and investigate the root cause of anomalies.
