View the status of monitored apps

As of .NET agent release 6.20, New Relic's.NET status monitor is no longer available. For .NET agent versions 6.20 or higher, use New Relic Diagnostics.

The status monitor provides visibility into which applications are currently being instrumented by the .NET agent and the status of each application. You will not see any data on an application unless there has been traffic on it recently. In order to conserve your system resources, the status monitor does not automatically refresh.

  1. From your Windows Start menu or Start screen, search for Status monitor.

    OR

  2. Right-click the New Relic icon in the Windows task bar status area (system tray), then select Monitored applications.
  3. To view whether an application is being instrumented, make sure all of its checkboxes are green.
  4. After you select a specific application, select any of the available options to view the app in New Relic, view log files, repair the installation if errors are found, or refresh and then view the latest status for your monitored processes and applications.

Repair installations

New Relic's .NET agent installation is robust and simple to use. However, there are certain scenarios when previous installations may conflict with the latest version. To fix common problems, repair your installation:

    OR

    From the Windows system tray, select the New Relic icon, then select Tools > Repair installation.
