New Relic Insights

New Relic Insights is one way you can query and chart your New Relic data. Insights is a software analytics resource for gathering and visualizing data about your software and understanding what that data says about your business. Features include:

  • Use NRQL to quickly and easily create real-time dashboards to get immediate answers about end-user experiences, clickstreams, mobile activities, and server transactions.
  • Query and chart data from other New Relic products, like APM, Browser, and Infrastructure.
  • Send custom data to New Relic and then query it and create customized charts.
  • Extend retention of APM, Browser, Mobile, and Serverless events, and custom events, with an Insights Pro subscription.
