Why it matters
Many Node application requests are based on raw URLs. Our solution is different. New Relic for Node.js assumes it can group requests to your application into transactions instead of HTTP requests. Transactions are defined by giving one or more request paths a name. These names are used to:
- Visualize where your app is spending its time (in transaction breakdowns).
- Identify slow requests.
- Group metrics.
- Show you which portions of your application are suffering from slow database performance.
To install our agent, you need to sign up for New Relic first. Once you're logged in, follow the instructions or use our launcher to get data flowing in.
- Review the system requirements.
- Read the install docs.
- Go directly to the New Relic UI to add Node.js data.
