Before you install New Relic Infrastructure, ensure your system meets these requirements:
Infrastructure uses the hostname to uniquely identify each server. To avoid inaccurate metrics from combining multiple servers under a single hostname, ensure that each monitored server has a unique hostname. Or, use the optional
display_name setting to override the default hostname.
Servers using the name
localhost will not be reported by the Infrastructure agent since that is a default name and inherently non-unique.
Infrastructure requires these permissions:
- Linux: The agent runs and installs as root
- Windows: The agent must be installed from an Administrator account, and requires Administrator privileges to run
Infrastructure supports only x86 processor architectures:
- Linux: 64-bit architecture (also requires 64-bit package manager and dependencies)
- Windows: both 32 and 64-bit architectures
ARM processors are not supported.
