application (Python agent API)

Syntax

newrelic.agent.application(name=None)

Returns object corresponding to an agent monitored app; required by some Python agent API calls.

Description

This call returns an object corresponding to an agent-monitored application. If no name value is set, the name set via the Python agent configuration is used.

The returned application object does not present any public API, but is required by some other API calls.

Important

This call only returns the application object. It won't attempt to register the application with the data collector if this has not already occurred.

Parameters

Parameter

Description

name

string

Optional. The name of the application. If set, this overrides the application name set via Python agent configuration.

Return values

Returns an application object. The object itself does not present any public API, but is required by some other API calls.

Examples

Generate and use an application object

To generate an application object, use:

import newrelic.agent
app = newrelic.agent.application()

Some other Python agent API calls take the application object as a parameter. For an example, see the record_exception call.
