Update your C SDK code library

To update your application's code library to the latest version of New Relic's C SDK:

  1. Review the C SDK library changes to verify your code is compatible.
  2. Manually update the code for your app as applicable.
  3. Compile the C SDK code, using the make command, to create the latest version of the libnewrelic.a and link it into your application or service.
  4. If applicable, redeploy your application to your test environment.
  5. Generate traffic for your application, then check your its c_sdk.log file and newrelic-daemon.log output for any errors.
  6. Redeploy your application to your production environment.
  7. Wait a few minutes for your application to send data to New Relic. Then, check your application's performance in the New Relic UI.

If no data appears within a few minutes, follow the troubleshooting tips.
