Code-level metrics allow developers using the New Relic CodeStream extension to see APM data displayed contextually in their IDE, alongside individual methods in the code. This allows developers to be more proactive about addressing performance issues as they write and review code.
First, install the New Relic CodeStream extension into your supported IDE of choice and log in.
Code-level metrics are available for Java agent version 7.10.0 or higher, and enabled by default for version 7.11.0 and higher. See Java agent configuration: Config file for instructions on how to enabled or disable it.
The Java agent reports and attaches the following attributes to spans produced by your application:
The name of the instrumented function (Java method).
The namespace (fully qualified class name) in which
Spans created using the API method
NewRelic.getAgent().getTransaction().startSegment() will not contain these attributes. To create a span that contain these attributes annotate a method with
@Trace or use XML instrumentation.
