Configure the agent

You can customize some of the default behavior of the New Relic agent by adjusting configuration settings. Depending on the agent, you may be able to customize settings in these locations:

  • Configuration file
  • Environment variables
  • New Relic APM user interface (server-side configuration)
  • Other agent-specific options; for example, Java system properties, Python per-request configuration, etc.

At a minimum, every New Relic agent requires you to configure your license key. APM agents also require an app name setting.
