Choose your infrastructure agent install method

The infrastructure agent is an executable file that collects data about your hosts. You can enable the infrastructure agent to report data from some third party services and to collect log data.

The infrastructure agent can run on Windows, macOS, and many Linux distributions. This document describes the different methods you can use to install the infrastructure agent. To get started, you'll need a New Relic account and a license key.

The guided install is a single CLI command you can run to monitor your instance. It's a good option for small organizations, or for anyone who wants to test out New Relic.
