New Relic browser monitoring offers single-page application (SPA) monitoring to give you deeper visibility and actionable insights into real user interactions with single-page apps or any app that uses AJAX requests.
In addition to monitoring route changes automatically, our SPA API allows you to monitor virtually anything that executes inside the browser. Developers and their teams can use the API to:
- Create faster, more responsive, highly interactive apps.
- Monitor the throughput and performance that real users are experiencing.
- Troubleshoot and resolve problems within the context of the page load.
- Query your data to assist with business decisions.
- Bring better apps to the marketplace more quickly.
Enable SPA monitoring
SPA monitoring is enabled by default for new browser agent installations. The SPA-enabled version of the agent gives access to other powerful New Relic features, like distributed tracing. For more information, see Enable browser monitoring.
For compatibility information about SPA-related features, see SPA requirements.
Analyze throughput and performance data
Improving on traditional industry standards for measuring page load timing, we give you a complete picture of the activity, both synchronous and asynchronous, associated with page loads and route changes.

SPA data monitored by browser monitoring includes:
- Performance data and throughput for page loads and route changes
- AJAX request data
- Dynamic page updates, monitored using the SPA API
With this data, you will gain a clear understanding of how your users experience your app's page loads and route changes, and be able to solve bottlenecks and troubleshoot errors. For more about how New Relic handles SPA data, see Understand SPA data collection.
