Infrastructure data retention

Infrastructure data retention policies depend on your Infrastructure subscription level and your New Relic Infrastructure Compute Units pricing model. Infrastructure data retention is the same for the Infrastructure UI and for Insights.

Infrastructure events do not count against your New Relic Insights Pro quota, even though you can query them in Insights.

Your current subscription level appears in the right column of the Account summary page: From the account dropdown in the New Relic UI, select Account settings > Account > Summary.

Inventory attributes removed

Inventory attributes for a host are retained for 24 hours after the agent stops reporting.

Integration data Not available with Essentials Up to 2275 Integration events are included per Compute Unit.

Overall compute units limit for events

The 2275 compute units limit applies to total integration events, not 2275 for each integration. Each compute unit you purchase allows 2275 integration events.

This limit applies to cloud, on-host, and custom integrations. Default data received by the Infrastructure agent does not count against the 2275 integrations limit.

Custom integrations limit

The 2275 limit refers to any event generated by an integration. This includes on-host, cloud, and custom integrations.

New Relic does not make a distinction between your custom integration and other Infrastructure integrations. New Relic treats events equally between on-host, cloud, and custom integrations.

Compute units limit overage

Currently New Relic does not enforce the events limit if you exceed your compute units. However, New Relic will review pricing options with you, to ensure you get the most cost-effective pricing for your organization's integrations.
