This documentation explains requirements and tips for integrating the New Relic Python agent with an app that uses Tornado 6. To return to the general install instructions, go to Install New Relic for Python.
The Python agent does not support any versions of Tornado below 6.0.
Automatic initialization with admin script
You can use the recommended admin script integration method, provided you start your app with
python app.py and use the Tornado async interface. Here's an example of using the admin script method:
NEW_RELIC_CONFIG_FILE=path/to/newrelic.ini newrelic-admin run-python app.py
Manual integration in your app code is allowed but not recommended. See Manual integration instructions for more information.
Event loop diagnostic supportThe Python agent supports asyncio event loop diagnostics. See Python event loop diagnostics for more information.
