If you got started with the free version of New Relic and you're ready to optimize all our powerful browser monitoring features, you can upgrade your agent from Browser+Lite to Browser Pro or Browser+SPA.
To change your browser edition type, go to one.newrelic.com > Browser > (select an app) > Settings > Application settings.
Here are some comparisons between the different browser agent types to help you decide which one best fits your needs:
Browser agent types: Lite, Pro, Pro+SPA
We have three types of browser agents: Lite, Pro, and Pro+SPA. The agent type has no impact on your billing.
Browser agent type
This is the default installed agent when you enable browser monitoring.
What it includes:
What it includes: Gives you access to the Browser Pro features.
What it doesn't include: Lacks the functionality designed for single page app monitoring.
What it includes: Gives you information about some basic page load timing and browser user information.
What it doesn't include: Lacks the Browser Pro features and SPA features.
Check out these docs to learn more about pricing for each browser agent type:
- Usage-based pricing: This pricing model has data ingest as a billing factor. If you want to reduce data ingest, you may want to consider downgrading to lesser agent types after install.
- Original pricing: Your access to browser monitoring features is gated by your subscription plan, not by the agent type. This means there is no reason not to use the default Pro+SPA agent.
