Introduction to on-host integrations

New Relic Infrastructure integrations allow you to send data from popular products and services to New Relic.

Integrations fall into two main categories: on-host and cloud. On-host integrations reside on your own servers or hosts and include:

This document gives a brief introduction to on-host (non-cloud) integrations.

Access to on-host integration data is available only with Infrastructure Pro. For subscription details, see the Infrastructure product page.

Getting started

To get started with on-host integrations:

  1. Browse the lists of on-host integrations built by New Relic.
  2. If you do not already have New Relic Infrastructure, install the Infrastructure agent for your operating system.
  3. Follow the procedures to install and configure the selected on-host integration, including prerequisites for compatibility and other requirements.
  4. Optional: If we don't currently offer an integration for the service you use, browse the list of open-source on-host integrations or create your own integration with New Relic's Integrations SDK.

Features

After you install and activate an integration, you will be able to:

Monitor remote and multi-tenant configurations

Ubiquitous monitoring

Some configurations may use third party elements, such as databases, which reside in non-accessible, remote hosts. Most of our existing integrations - with the exception of Apache, MySQL, NGINX, Redis, and StatsD - can fetch data from local and remote hosts or servers, ensuring a continuous monitoring of your service.

Multi-tenant configurations

On-host integrations monitoring supports multi-tenant clustered configurations - by "abstracting" the service from the host, multiple entities can be monitored as remote instances. Note that since Apache, MySQL, NGINX, Redis, and StatsD integrations do not support remote monitoring, multi-tenant monitoring is not possible either.
