New Relic offers an integration that fetches data about your Google App Engine services so that you can view the data in the New Relic UI.
For more information about monitoring applications that reside in a Google App Engine environment with (instead of how to monitor your Google App Engine services), see Google App Engine environment.
Features of the Google App Engine integration
You can use the Google App Engine integration to view charts and set alerts for your Google App Engine services in New Relic and to create custom queries and charts. Google App Engine is a Google Cloud Platform service that abstracts away the underlying infrastructure for your mobile and web applications, allowing you to focus on their development.
- The Google App Engine Standard environment provides a set of preconfigured runtimes and is suitable for applications that require fully-managed, fast scaling.
- The Google App Engine Flexible environment runs applications within Docker containers and is suitable for applications that require configurable, gradual scaling.
To enable the integration follow standard procedures to connect your GCP service to New Relic.
New Relic queries your Google App Engine services based on a polling interval of 5 minutes. The resolution is 1 data point every minute.
Find and use data
After connecting the Google App Engine integration to New Relic and waiting a few minutes (based on the polling frequency), you can find and use integration data:

Different metrics are available depending on whether your application is running in a standard or flexible environment, so some metrics may not be available for your application.
