Scala instrumentation

The New Relic Java agent is compatible with Scala, and supports New Relic API calls, annotations, and custom instrumentation. All information below is supplemental to New Relic's Java agent installation directions.

If your framework is not natively supported by New Relic, or if you want to set up additional monitoring, custom instrumentation is a great way to dig deeper into your application.

Instrument Scala with the Java agent API

Instrument Scala to use the New Relic API class or annotations.

  1. Add the following information to your Scala configuration file:

    Configure using the project/build.scala file

    Add the following line (replacing X.Y.Z with the Java agent version you use) to the appDependencies method in your application's project/build.scala file:

    "com.newrelic.agent.java" % "newrelic-api" % "X.Y.Z"
    Configure using the project/build.sbt file

    Add the following line (replacing X.Y.Z with the Java agent version you use) to your application's project/build.sbt file:

    libraryDependencies += "com.newrelic.agent.java" % "newrelic-api" % "X.Y.Z"
  2. Import the NewRelic class and use it in your application:

    import com.newrelic.api.agent.NewRelic
    ...
    NewRelic.setTransactionName(null, "/myTransaction");
