Introduction to on-host integrations

New Relic infrastructure integrations allow you to send data from popular products and services to New Relic. On-host integrations allows you to collect and send data from core infrastructure services to our platform. For a complete list of core services that you can instrument, see List of on-host integrations.

Get started

To get started with infrastructure on-host integrations:

  1. Browse the lists of on-host integrations.
  2. If you do not already have New Relic infrastructure monitoring enabled, install the Infrastructure agent.
  3. Follow the procedures to install and configure the selected on-host integration, including prerequisites for compatibility and other requirements.

If we don't currently offer an integration for a service you use, consider creating your own integration with Flex.

Features

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.​
