View entity health status and find entities without alert conditions

With alerts you can easily tell whether an entity (the target for the notification) has one or more conditions associated with it:

  • If yes, its health status indicator on the selected index (APM, Browser, etc.) will be color-coded to the current state. To view a summary of current alert violations, mouse over its health status indicator.
  • If no, its health status indicator on the selected index will appear light green with a question mark (?) icon icon-alerts-q-green.png (APM, Browser, and Mobile) or light green with a dash icon-alerts-synthetics-dash.png (Synthetic monitoring and Plugins).

Exceptions: The health status indicator is not applicable for:

  • Infrastructure
  • Dashboards
  • Entities targeted by labels

To learn more about how conditions and policies work together, see Introduction to important concepts.

Color-coded health status

The index automatically appears when you select the product from the New Relic menu bar. For example, to view the index of APM apps, go to one.newrelic.com, then click APM. The Applications index lists all APM product entities and their current health status.

Color Health status
icon-alerts-green.png Green The entity is fine; We are collecting data that you can view in the appropriate UI. No alert violations are currently reported for it.

No conditions have been identified for this entity. Follow standard procedures to add it to an existing condition or to create a new condition for it.

icon-alerts-yellow.png Yellow A warning threshold has been violated.
icon-alerts-red.png Red

A critical threshold has been violated:

icon-alerts-gray.png Gray

The entity is not reporting any data to us.

Starting June 8, 2020, New Relic One will not continue to display any APM application that hasn't reported data for 93 days. To match our published APM data retention guidelines, applications that have not reported data will be available within the New Relic UI for 90 days. After 90 days, those applications will be removed from the UI; however, key metrics will continue to be available with our REST API based on subscription level. For more information, see this Explorers Hub post.

Example: App without conditions

Here's an example of an app listed on the APM index that is not associated with any conditions. Its color-coded health status is a lighter green than the app above it, and the question mark (?) icon indicates that we can't verify its current health status.

Go to one.newrelic.com, then click Entity explorer: This example shows an app that currently isn't associated with any alerts conditions. Its grey status icon means it doesn't have any conditions.

Follow standard procedures to add it to an existing condition or to create a new condition for it.

Example: App with conditions

Here's an example of an app listed on the APM index that is associated with one or more conditions. Its color-coded health status is green, because we are collecting data for it, and currently there are no Warning (yellow) or Critical (red) violations.

Go to one.newrelic.com, then click Entity explorer: This example shows an app that has one or more conditions. Its color-coded health status (green) shows the app hasn't reached any threshold violations.

To view the index listing currently open incidents across all products, not just this entity, select View all violations.
