New Relic offers various integrations for reporting data to our platform. One category of integrations is our Infrastructure integrations.
Types of infrastructure integrations
New Relic has two main categories of infrastructure integrations: cloud and on-host.
Cloud integrations collect data from cloud services and accounts. There's no installation process for cloud integrations, you simply connect your New Relic account to your cloud provider account.
|Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based integrations||
Connect your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account to monitor and report data to New Relic.
See the list of AWS integrations.
|Microsoft Azure cloud-based integrations||
Connect your Microsoft Azure account to monitor and report data to New Relic.
See the list of Azure integrations.
|Google Cloud Platform (GCP) cloud-based integrations||
Connect your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account to monitor and report data to New Relic.
See the list of GCP integrations.
On-host integrations are what we call integrations that you can run directly on your host or server. They typically connect to core services in your servers:
|Kubernetes integration||Connect your account to gain visibility of your Kubernetes environment, explore your clusters, and manage alerts.|
Monitor and report data from many popular services, including Kubernetes, Redis, Apache, RabbitMQ, and many more.
|Build your own||
To create your own lightweight integration, use our Flex integration tool.
To enable cloud integrations or install on-host integrations, see:
- Cloud integrations: AWS procedures, Azure procedures, Google Cloud Platform procedures
- Kubernetes: Kubernetes procedures
- On-host integrations: See an integration's documentation for install procedures
- SDK integrations: Procedures to create a custom integration
After an infrastructure integration is activated, you can:
- Filter and analyze the metrics and configuration data in our Infrastructure UI.
- Query your data and create custom charts and dashboards.
- Create alert conditions to monitor problems with your services' performance.
- For cloud integrations, configure data collection settings.
Types of integration data
Infrastructure integrations generate some basic types of data that you can use in New Relic.
Numeric measurement data. Examples:
Cloud-based and on-host integrations include pre-built dashboards that display important metrics.
Live system state and configuration information. Examples:
Changes in inventory generate events in New Relic, so you can easily figure out when performance issues were caused by a change in the system.
Important activity on a system. Examples:
Changes to inventory are a type of event.
Key-value pairs generated by some integrations. Examples:
Depending on the integration, other types of information may be reported as attributes.
Our integrations are data agnostic; they have no knowledge of whether reported data contains personal information. For more information about New Relic's security measures, see our security and privacy documentation, or visit the New Relic security website.
