New Relic can collect detailed information about a system's configuration per host, including system modules, configuration files, metadata, packages, services, user sessions, and more. The Inventory page provides a real-time, filterable, searchable view into each host's configuration.
Use the Inventory page to:
- Ensure a version update was applied successfully across all your hosts.
- Audit version discrepancies across your hosts.
- Quickly identify which hosts require an update to fix a security vulnerability.
To view and search your inventory data: Go to one.newrelic.com > All capabilities > Infrastructure > Inventory.
For data to appear on this page, you must have the infrastructure agent installed.
The infrastructure inventory is a qualified namespace (structured like a directory) that organizes inventory items into names that resemble a source path. The inventory item name is comprised of three elements:
Basic, top level type of data source, typically based on its role in the system. Common examples include config, package, kernel, user session, services, and modules.
The specific data source for the inventory item.
The name of the specific inventory item; for example, the filename, package name, or system setting name.
Use tagging for detailed metadata and other information about your hosts .
Use Inventory page functions to find information about a particular item on your hosts:
Inventory is collected from the infrastructure agent's built-in data collectors, Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) integrations, agent integrations provided by New Relic, and customer-built integrations. The data appears on the Inventory page and in other places in our infrastructure UI.
Inventory data is real-time. If a host stops reporting, its inventory data still displays for up to 24 hours.
The filter set UI component is used for filtering your hosts and creating saved views. It is only available on the Events and Inventory UI pages and is in the process of being deprecated. It has been replaced by the saved views feature. Any filter sets you create from this point onward will not be migrated to the saved views feature.
