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.

Get started

To get started with on-host integrations:

  1. Browse the lists of on-host integrations.
  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, consider creating your own integration with New Relic's Integrations SDK.


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

Monitor remote and multi-tenant configurations

Some configurations may use third party elements, such as databases, which reside in non-accessible, remote hosts. Our integrations can fetch data from local and remote hosts or servers, ensuring a continuous monitoring of your service. They also support multi-tenant clustered configurations—by "abstracting" the service from the host, multiple entities can be monitored as remote instances.

You can activate remote monitoring and multi-tenancy in the Apache, Cassandra, MySQL, NGINX, and Redis integrations with the remote_monitoring parameter.​
