As of April 12, 2021, we are upgrading Insights to an improved web and mobile experience! All of your Insights URLs will be redirected automatically to the corresponding dashboards in New Relic One. For more details about this migration and how you can easily plan for this transition, see our Explorers Hub post.
Understanding infrastructure data can help you:
- Better understand our infrastructure monitoring UI.
- Manage your infrastructure data.
- Create better host filter sets.
- Run better queries of your data.
- Set up better monitoring solutions using custom attributes.
The attributes attached to these events are the metadata and metrics used to create our infrastructure UI visualizations. You can also create custom queries and charts of this data.
If you're using integrations, see that integration's doc for more on reported data. For common AWS attributes, see AWS data.
Select an event name in the following table to see its attributes.
Process metrics are not sent to New Relic by default for accounts created after July 20, 2020. Enable process metrics to get this data into the Infrastructure monitoring UI.
If your server uses disks with file systems other than the supported file systems in the following table,
To learn about infrastructure integration data, see the documentation for a specific integration.
If an AWS integration is enabled, your infrastructure events may also have AWS attributes attached.
You can query your infrastructure data to troubleshoot a problem or create a chart, or to understand what data is available. For example, to see what data is attached to
ProcessSample, you would run this NRQL query:
SELECT * FROM ProcessSample
You can also query infrastructure using dimensional metrics.
For tips on managing data ingest and reporting, see Manage infrastructure data.
You can create custom attributes in the infrastructure agent's YAML file. Use this metadata to:
If you connect your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) account to our infrastructure monitoring, we report data from your Amazon EC2 instances. Amazon EC2-related attributes are common attributes that can be used in any event. These attributes are drawn from the EC2 API. No CloudWatch information is collected.
These attributes and their values are subject to change if Amazon changes the data they expose.
