Infrastructure Network page: Measure and compare capacity

New Relic Infrastructure's Network page provides real-time visibility into the health and performance of individual hosts, webservers, or other groups of resources across your network. Default charts include: bandwidth metrics by packet, bandwidth by bytes, and errors per second.

For example, the ability to view details about individual interfaces can help you:

  • Examine saturation levels across your network or for selected filter sets.
  • Compare load balances between specific resources.
  • Identify unexpected differences in capacity patterns between similar hosts.
  • Evaluate the top five network errors that New Relic Infrastructure automatically presents for the selected time period.

This real-time network data can then help you determine whether to resolve errors by reconfiguring your network, rebalancing the loads, or taking other preventative maintenance actions before needing to make a purchase decision.

View Network data

To view bandwidth and error data about your network interfaces: Go to infrastructure.newrelic.com > Network. The Network page includes an Events heatmap, which provides a snapshot of the events occurring within the same time range as the displayed metrics.

Infrastructure Network UI page

infrastructure.newrelic.com > Network: Example of the Infrastructure Network page that shows you which hosts/resources are transmitting the most bytes.

Filter and group

Use filter sets to show only hosts matching certain criteria, or use Group by to aggregate the results.

Select a time range Use the time picker to change the range of time selected. You can also click and drag on the chart to select a custom time range. When you select a time range, it carries over when you go from one Infrastructure page to another.
Change metrics displayed in chart Use the sorting dropdown to switch what metric the chart is displaying for the chosen process groupings. Choices include: Received Bytes, Received Dropped, Received Errors, Received Packets, Transmitted Bytes, Transmitted Dropped, Transmitted Errors, and Transmitted Packets.
Search and filter the list

Type in the Search interfaces search bar to filter the list to only those items containing the text you've typed.

You can also filter the list by simply selecting the list item or user name you want to filter for. The chosen filters are displayed beside the filter icon above the chart.

Add items to chart The chart, by default, displays the top five results. Use the Chart shows dropdown to display more results. To remove an item from a chart, select its name below the chart.
Set an alert condition for a metric Mouse over a chart and select the [ellipses icon] icon and then Create alert (not available on APM charts).
Share data and view in New Relic Insights

Mouse over a chart and select the ellipses [ellipses icon] icon and then View query (not available on APM charts).

View host's alert threshold violation

Select the host's Critical times-circle-o icon or Warning exclamation-triangle icon.
