5. Track deployment history
When development teams are pushing new code out the door as frequently as possible, it can be hard to measure the impact each deployment is having on performance. One way to stay in tune with how all these changes are affecting your application is via deployment reports. Deployment reports list recent deployments and their impact on end users and app servers’ Apdex scores, along with response times, throughput, and errors. You can also view and drill down into the details and catch errors related to recent deployments, or file a ticket and share details with your team.
HOW TO DO IT:
- To view the Deployments dashboard, from the New Relic menu bar, select APM > (selected app) > Events > Deployments.
- To view performance after a deployment, go to the selected app’s Overview dashboard in the Recent events section. Also, a blue vertical bar on a chart indicates a deployment. To view summary information about the deployment, point to the blue bar.
