Mobile subscription usage UI

For account owners and admins, New Relic provides a UI for understanding your subscription-related usage of New Relic products. This documentation explains how to view and understand the usage UI for New Relic Mobile.

For an introduction to New Relic usage data and how to use it, see Intro to usage data.

View Mobile usage

Only the account Owner and Admins can view the usage UI. However, anyone in your account can query usage data using the NrDailyUsage Insights event.

To view your Mobile subscription usage data:

  1. From rpm.newrelic.com/mobile, select the account dropdown, and then select Account settings.
  2. Select Usage.
  3. Select Mobile usage.

Calculation details

New Relic Mobile subscription usage is based on the concept of monthly active users, or MAUs. For a New Relic-monitored mobile app, MAUs will represent a cumulative count of unique users that used that app during a calendar month. Each unique end-user mobile device counts as a "user" for the purposes of this metric.

For accounts that have multiple apps, total account usage will represent a sum of the MAUs for all the apps under that account.

The Mobile usage chart and table display the maximum MAUs that have been reached over a given time period. It will usually ramp up quickly at the beginning of the month, then grow slowly throughout the month. Because it represents "the maximum value found so far," it will never go down (and this makes it different from other New Relic usage measurements, which are based on summing daily usage).

For a description of general usage UI features, see UI features.

Table definitions

Here are definitions of the column headers displayed in the UI table and CSV files. The columns visible depend on the Group by option selected at the top of the page.

Header Definition
Account name The name of the account. This can be a standalone account, a master account or a customer partnership.
Application name The name of the mobile application
Application ID New Relic Mobile application ID
Maximum MAUs Maximum monthly active users. For the current calendar month, the highest count of active users that has been reached. This number can be compared to the MAUs included in your New Relic subscription.
% of total usage The percentage of the total usage that is attributed to the group (account or application, depending on the Group by selection)
