Grafana support with Prometheus and PromQL

Our Prometheus API emulates Prometheus' query APIs. In Grafana, you can configure New Relic as a Prometheus data source. Not only that, within Grafana you can query metrics stored in New Relic using the PromQL query language.

We support the Prometheus query language (PromQL) through our PromQL-style query mode. We do our best to automatically translate PromQL syntax queries into the closest NRQL approximation.

For more information on how this works and differences you may observe between Prometheus and New Relic, see Supported PromQL features.

Use existing Grafana dashboards with New Relic

When you integrate Prometheus metrics with New Relic via Remote Write or the OpenMetrics Integration (2.0+) and configure New Relic as a Prometheus data source in Grafana, you can use existing Grafana dashboards and seamlessly tap into the additional monitoring, reliability, and scale we provide.

Compatibility and requirements

Before you begin, make sure you’ve finished integrating Prometheus metrics and are running a recent enough version of Grafana.

Get data flowing in Grafana

To make your New Relic data available in Grafana, you can configure a new or existing Prometheus data source in just a couple of simple steps:

  1. In the Grafana UI, add and configure a new data source.
  2. Save the new data source and start viewing your data.
