Most data generated by integrations is available in our dashboards, where you can query your data using NRQL and build custom dashboards. The following tips and sample queries were created for New Relic-built integrations, but most will also apply to integrations built with the Integrations SDK.
Integrations can generate metric, event, and inventory data, all of which are available for querying. Here are some tips for using the different types of integration data. For more on using NRQL queries, see our Intro to NRQL.
Tips for finding and using integration metric data:
Metric values are treated as attributes: key-value pairs attached to an event. For example, the MySQL integration has an 'active connections' metric; this would be found by querying the connectionsActive attribute of the MysqlSample event.
For general information about events, see Event data.
After March 2022, we're discontinuing support for several capabilities, including inventory data for cloud integrations. For more details, including how you can easily prepare for this transition, see our Support Forum post.
When inventory data changes, an InfrastructureEvent event type is generated with a format value of inventoryChange. See the query examples for an example of querying this data.
