In New Relic's infrastructure monitoring, the Events UI page is a live feed of important system and host activity, including inventory change events, configuration changes, and log analytics events. The event feed helps you understand correlations between these events and system performance. Search and filter through your events to decrease the mean time to detect and repair infrastructure issues.
Note that this use of "event" is specific to infrastructure monitoring and a separate concept from our more general event data type.
You can access the Events page by going to one.newrelic.com > Infrastructure > Events.
New Relic collects a variety of change events so you can understand each change in your environment:
When a violation is opened or closed, New Relic generates an event indicating the host and associated alert condition.
When an infrastructure agent connects to New Relic, our platform generates an Agent connected event. If New Relic doesn't receive data from an agent for three minutes, the platform generates an Agent disconnected event.
These events are generated when inventory data is added, removed, or modified. Select the source icon to to understand which category corresponds to the altered inventory path. For additional details, select an inventory event to see a side-by-side comparison of the old and new state.
Inventory events can include:
