Background jobs analysis report

The Background jobs analysis report helps you analyze the performance of jobs and other non-web transactions running in production that use frameworks instrumented by New Relic, such as DelayedJob and Resque. The report shows comparison information from the past 24 hours back to the past 7 days, including the amount of time spent in throughput (requests per minute or rpm), total time spent in the job, and average time to execute it.

Access to this feature depends on your subscription level and data retention policy.
