Get started with infrastructure monitoring

New Relic lets you monitor your software infrastructure so you can deliver reliable systems. Whether you work in the cloud, on dedicated hosts, or with containers running in orchestrated environments, you can use infrastructure monitoring to improve health and performance outcomes.

From one.newrelic.com > All Capabilities > Infrastructure:The Hosts page shows performance data about your systems, networks, processes, and storage.

One agent, many capabilities

To get access to our infrastructure monitoring capability, you need the infrastructure agent. When you install the agent, it collects performance and health data about system resources and processes for on-premise or virtualized hosts. From there, you can configure the agent to pair with one of our supported on-host integrations, or to forward logs.

Infrastructure monitoring empowers modern operations teams to dig deep into complex and hybrid systems, from a single data center to thousands of Amazon, Google Cloud, or Azure instances. Whatever your architecture looks like, our infrastructure monitoring capability helps you troubleshoot and improve your systems. Here are some solutions:

Reduce MTTR with actionable data

Real-time metrics and analytics reduce your mean-time-to-resolution (MTTR) by connecting changes in host performance to changes in your configuration. Here's an example of how infrastructure data can help you:

From the Inventory page, focus on all the infrastructure entities in your estate.

one.newrelic.com > All Capabilities > Infrastructure monitoring > Inventory: Search across your entire system 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.

The Events page contains a real-time feed of all that is happening in your hosts.

However you use it, our solution securely collects and displays your data so your monitoring never lags behind reality.

Install the infrastructure agent

To get acccess to infrastructure monitoring, you'll first need to install an agent. You can install the infrastructure agent in Linux, macOS, and Windows systems. Depending on your observability needs, you have a few different options for deploying the agent in your system. We recommend reviewing our Choose your infrastructure agent install method to decide the option that fits your use case.

Most of our solutions depend on installing the infrastructure agent first to send data in concert with it.

Our infrastructure service integrations

Our infrastructure integrations give you access to the metrics of many popular services and systems. Our integrations include:

View logs for your infrastructure and app data

Bring your logs and infrastructure data together to make troubleshooting easier and faster! With logs in context, you can see logs of your infrastructure data, such as Kubernetes clusters. You can add as many configuration files as you need; these files will serve as the sources that push your log metadata to our platform.

You can also see log messages related to your errors and traces directly in your app's or host's UI. For more information, see our APM logs in context documentation.

If your agent doesn't support our automatic logs in context solution yet, you can continue to use our manual logs in context solutions, and forward your logs via our infrastructure agent or other supported third-party log forwarder.
