Introduction to Infrastructure integrations

New Relic Infrastructure integrations send data from popular services to New Relic. After you install and activate an integration, you can:

Available integrations

New Relic on-host integrations collect data from services residing in your own servers or hosts. Our cloud integrations connect to your cloud accounts on platforms such as Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform or Microsoft Azure. We also offer an integration with Kubernetes.

Integrations Description
Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-based integrations

Connect your Amazon Web Services (AWS) account to monitor and report data to New Relic.

See list of AWS cloud-based integrations.

Microsoft Azure cloud-based integrations

Connect your Microsoft Azure account to monitor and report data to New Relic.

See list of Azure cloud-based integrations.

Google Cloud Platform (GCP) cloud-based integrations

Connect your Google Cloud Platform (GCP) account to monitor and report data to New Relic.

See list of GCP cloud-based integrations.

Kubernetes integration Connect your account to gain visibility of your Kubernetes environment, explore your clusters, and manage alerts.
On-host integrations built by New Relic

Monitor and report data from many popular services using on-host integrations built by New Relic.

See list of New Relic on-host integrations.

On-host integrations built by the open-source community

Monitor and report data from many popular services using open-source on-host integrations built by the open-source community.

On-host integrations built by you

Create your own custom integrations using New Relic's Integrations SDK.

Installation instructions

Types of integration data

Integrations generate three basic types of data that you can use in New Relic.

Integration data Description
Metrics

Numeric measurement data. Examples:

  • Number of requests in a queue
  • Number of hits on a database per minute
  • Percentage of CPU being used

Cloud-based and on-host integrations include pre-built dashboards that display important metrics.

Inventory

Live system state and configuration information. Examples:

  • Host name
  • AWS region or availability zone
  • Port being used

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.

Events

Important activity on a system. Examples:

  • Service starting
  • Version update
  • New table being created

Changes to inventory are a type of event.

Attributes

Key-value pairs generated by some integrations. Examples:

  • Certain inventory data
  • Additional data attached to events
  • Any data that is not considered metrics or inventory
