New Relic provides flexible, dynamic observability of your entire infrastructure, from services running in the cloud or on dedicated hosts to containers running in orchestrated environments. You can connect the health and performance of all your hosts to application context, logs, and configuration changes.
With infrastructure monitoring, modern operations teams get complete observability of complex and hybrid systems, from a datacenter to thousands of Amazon, Google Cloud, or Azure instances.
Why it matters
Real-time metrics and analytics reduce your mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) by connecting changes in host performance to changes in your configuration. From the Inventory page you can search across your entire estate to find exactly which of your hosts contain particular packages, configs, or startup scripts.
From the Events page you can track config changes, restarts, SSH sessions, and other key event changes. A real-time feed gives you a changelog for your entire infrastructure. Our solution securely collects and displays your data in five seconds, so your monitoring never lags behind reality.
With our infrastructure monitoring tools you can also:
- Query your data to drill down into your infrastructure events and build custom dashboards that you can share with your team.
- Troubleshoot performance issues, no matter where the issue occurs—server-side or application-side—thanks to APM data connection with infrastructure monitoring.
- Create, view, or update alert settings directly from the relevant infrastructure chart. For example, you can create a host not reporting alert condition.
- Forward logs to our logs monitoring by adding as many configuration files as log sources you need to push to our platform.
Install and configure the infrastructure agent
To use the links above, you must be logged to your New Relic account.
If you don't have a New Relic account yet, or prefer to follow the procedure step-by-step, see our tutorials to install the New Relic agent for Linux | Windows | Elastic Beanstalk | Ansible | Chef | Puppet.
Add integrations to gather data about your services
You can also make your own integrations using New Relic Flex or the Integrations SDK to collect data from other applications. With New Relic Flex, you can instrument any command-line tool without coding.
Filter your hosts any way you want
Filter sets allow you to organize your hosts based on criteria that matter most to you. You can filter your hosts by any infrastructure attribute, such as geographic location, hostname, or Linux distribution.
Explore your infrastructure data
You can query and visualize your infrastructure data in New Relic One:
- Sample and search infrastructure events, such as to gain full understanding of the data being collected.
- Browse your data visually with the data explorer.
- Create custom SQL-like queries of your data using the New Relic Query Language (NRQL), or query your data using PromQL.
- Use dashboards to build advanced data visualizations, contextualize data, and understand what's going on in your system, real-time.
