Go runtime page: Troubleshoot performance problems

The New Relic APM user interface provides a variety of data about your app, including special features for the Go agent for APM. In addition, the Go runtime page provides important runtime data useful for troubleshooting performance issues.

Access to this feature depends on your subscription level.

If the Go runtime page shows a feature preview instead of data, it is because you do not have the necessary subscription level.
