Before you install New Relic for Go, ensure your system meets the requirements in this document.
New Relic supports Golang 1.3 or higher.
The agent supports Linux, macOS, and Windows. You can also use the Go agent in a Google App Engine (GAE) flexible environment.
The following integration packages extend the base newrelic package to support other frameworks and libraries. Frameworks and databases that don't have an integration package may still be instrumented using the newrelic package primitives. More information about instrumenting your database using these primitives can be found here.

Database and instance-level performance
New Relic collects instance details for a variety of databases and database drivers. The ability to view specific instances and the types of database information in New Relic APM depends on your New Relic agent version.
The New Relic Go agent version 1.4 or higher supports instance details for all database drivers.
Connect the agent to other New Relic products
The Go agent integrates with other New Relic products to give you end-to-end visibility:
|When you install the Infrastructure and APM agents on the same host, they automatically detect one another. You can then view a list of hosts in the APM UI, and filter your Infrastructure hosts by APM app in the Infrastructure UI. For more information, see New Relic APM data in Infrastructure.|
|New Relic Insights||The Go agent sends default events and attributes to Insights for NRQL queries. You can also record custom events for advanced analysis.|
|New Relic Synthetics||Synthetic transaction traces connect requests from Synthetics monitors to the underlying APM transaction.|
