Basic mode is a good choice if you don't know how to use the New Relic Query Language (NRQL) or are new to specifying data. Advanced (NRQL) mode lets you create more complex queries.
To use the chart builder:
- Go to one.newrelic.com .
- Click the chart builder icon.
- If needed, click either the basic or advanced (NRQL) icon in the upper-right corner to select the mode you want to use.
If you are using the chart builder for the first time, you will see basic mode. If you have previously used the chart builder, you will see the mode you last used.
Example use case
As a dev ops engineer for your company's web store, you are contacted because the support team is reporting an increase in calls regarding page not found errors. You need to query the database to get a report about these failed transactions.
See how to use basic mode to specify data and view a chart for the example use case.
See how to use advanced (NRQL) mode to write a query that produces a chart for the example use case.
