Introduction to on-host integrations

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

Infrastructure integrations have two main categories: cloud integrations and on-host integrations. This document gives a brief introduction to on-host 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 Infrastructure 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 our Flex integration tool.

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.​
