New Relic Infrastructure integrations send data from popular services to New Relic. This document introduces you to our integrations, what they do, and how to get started using them.
The Integrations service is data agnostic; it has no knowledge of whether the imported data contains any personal information. For more information about New Relic's security measures, see our security and privacy documentation, or visit the New Relic security website.
New Relic has two types of 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 run directly on your host or server. Available on-host integrations include Kubernetes, MySQL, Redis, Kafka, RabbitMQ, and many more. You can also build your own on-host integrations using our integrations SDK.
|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 with integrations that include Kubernetes, Redis, Apache, RabbitMQ, and many more.

Install and enable instructions
To connect 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 integration is activated, you can:
- Filter and analyze the metrics and configuration data in New Relic Infrastructure.
- Query your data and create custom dashboards in New Relic Insights.
- Create alert conditions to monitor problems with your services' performance in New Relic Alerts.
- For cloud integrations, configure data collection settings.
Types of integration data
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 Infrastructure, 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.
