Introduction to on-host integrations

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

What are on-host integrations?

New Relic integrations can be categorized as either cloud or on-host. Unlike cloud-based integrations, on-host integrations reside on your own servers or hosts. These include:

Features

After you install and activate an integration, you can:

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 New Relic does not 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.

Instance monitoring

On-host integrations can only monitor a single node or instance at a given time (except for the Kubernetes integration). For example, if a host has two or more Apache servers running on it, only a single one can be monitored with on-host integrations. Multi-tenant clustered configurations are not supported for on-host integrations.
