Transaction traces: Summary page

In New Relic APM, the transaction trace Summary page shows a summary of the data from a specific transaction trace. This document describes the main sections and functions of the Summary page.

Access to this feature depends on your subscription level.

Transaction trace Summary page

New Relic APM - Transaction trace Summary tab > (select an app) > Transactions > (select a transaction trace): The Summary provides basic information about the transaction trace.

To view the transaction trace Summary page, select any transaction trace in New Relic APM. For instructions on how to find a transaction trace, see Transaction traces.

A transaction trace's Summary page has four main areas:

Section Description
Primary trace data, functions

At the top of all transaction trace pages are some primary measurements and functions. Measurements include response time, trace time, and, if available, CPU info.

Available functions include:

  • Delete this trace: When you delete a trace, it cannot be retrieved.
  • Track as key transaction.

There may sometimes be a note that the trace is a partial trace. For more info, see Partial traces.

For a description of New Relic's standard user interface functions, see New Relic UI functions.


This chart shows the trace segments that took the longest time, ordered by percentage of time spent. The remainder of the trace segments are grouped as Remainder.

Hover on the chart to display options below the chart for sharing and embedding.

Slowest components The Slowest components table shows the number of calls, total duration, and percentage for each of the slowest components.
Transaction attributes

This section displays available transaction attributes, such as referring URL and request headers. The exact request attributes collected by default depend on the New Relic language agent you use.

To turn attribute collection on/off for traces, you can either use the agent config file or the UI Settings > Application page (if your New Relic agent allows UI configuration).

To add custom attributes, see Custom attributes.

The other main transaction trace UI page is the Trace details page.
